France coach Didier Deschamps has insisted he is unconcerned by his team’s continued failure to find the net, setting a record five goalless matches in a row. France’s 0-0 draw in Georgia on Friday night meant Deschamps’ team have made history for all the wrong reasons. If France go another 21 minutes in Belarus on Tuesday without finding the net, they will also set an absolute national record for the number of consecutive minutes without troubling the scoreboards. Deschamps has persisted with Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema (picture), although he has now gone 20 hours and 26 minutes without hitting the net for club and country.AFP
