France are testing themselves tonight as they are currently facing the Netherlands in Paris. It will be a match where 'Les Bleus' will see if they can keep the same strength and team spirit that was on display when they beat Ukraine 3-0.
This will be a match where France will be able to make a statement going into the World Cup in June.
Playing against Netherlands is never an easy game, though. With the like of Robin Van Persie, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder in the opposition squad, it is going to be a very tough game for the young French defence.
Hugo Lloris will have to be as strong in goal as he is for club side Tottenham Hotspur.
Indeed, it could be a dream year for the French 'keeper as he is targeting a Champions League with the north London club and he could win his first trophy in England as he and his teammates will battle against Benfica next Thursday in the last 16 of the Europa League.
Didier Deschamps' France came back from 2-0 down against Ukraine to win 3-0 at home and qualify for the World Cup during the playoff round. Seeing 'Les Bleus' play with a strong team spirit, was something special.
Every French supporter is very optimistic regarding the World Cup in June, as France recently saw a number of new young talented players join the national team such as Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane and Mamadou Sakho.
These new players can play alongside the more established names in Karim Benzema, Samir Nasri, Olivier Giroud, Franck Ribery, Mathieu Valbuena and Blaise Matuidi and hopefully have an impact in Brazil.
