No frills as France win again

Cyprus 0-1 France Bryan Bergougnoux's goal ensured France's third successive 1-0 victory.

An early goal from Bryan Bergougnoux ensured France a third successive 1-0 victory in Group 4 as they beat Cyprus in Achnas.

Defended well
Bergougnoux, who did not play against the Republic of Ireland last Friday, struck after 15 minutes after combining well with Nabil Taider and Etienne Didot. From that point on, France defended well although the home side had several opportunities to level.

'Good collective play'
Afterwards France coach René Girard praised his team's "good collective play". France lead their section with the maximum nine points while Cyprus remain bottom without a point from their first three matches.
