France vs Finland: live stream, start time, TV info and more


This is a UEFA World Cup qualifying match between France and Finland. France currently sits in second place in the group table. This would put them in a play-off in November to compete for a World Cup berth. If some how Georgia upset Spain, they could move into first place. That move would guarantee them a trip to Brazil, and force Spain to the play-off. It seems unlikely, but it is possible.

“The plan remains qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil,” Hugo Lloris said, via ESPN FC. “Spain have already done the job on Friday and we’re not expecting any mistakes from them tomorrow. It would be nice to end this international break with a second win and then we can think about the play-offs.”
