Preview: Albania vs France
Having secured a hard-fought and deserved win over a stubborn Moldova side, France now have earned their place at EURO 2020. That was also thanks to Iceland doing them a huge favor and holding Turkey, who up until then had managed to cling to top spot, to a scoreless stalemate. Now, Didier Deschamps's men will seek to end their long qualifying process on a high note when they travel to face Albania, who ended up drawing 2-2 to Andorra in their penultimate match and will be desperate to end their frustrating run against France.
France had to work a lot harder than expected against a Moldova team desperate for points, despite the fact that their opponents were bottom of the table. However, Olivier Giroud's penalty was finally enough to break them down to pick up a 2-1 victory and certainly, with qualification already secured, Deschamps could opt to mix up his squad here.
