The French national team’s players, and their manager Didier Deschamps, must still be reeling after the Euro 2016 final earlier this month.
Les Bleus, in front of their home fans, were expected to beat Fernando Santos’ side at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
Their odds shortened even further when Cristiano Ronaldo was stretchered off the pitch in the 25th minute, but France ended up losing the final 1-0 thanks to Eder’s winner in the second half of extra-time.

Although a fine strike by Eder, the previously unheralded 28-year-old striker who spent last season with Swansea City, it was a 25-yard effort which some people thought Hugo Lloris perhaps could have prevented.
However, new footage has emerged online which shows why Lloris might not have been to blame for the winning goal.
Video: Lloris hurt himself before Eder's winner
Raphael Guerreiro smashed the crossbar with a free-kick moments before Eder’s winner - and during his attempt to make a save, Lloris appeared to injure his leg after getting himself tangled in the side-netting.
The Tottenham goalkeeper then spent the next minute hobbling around awkwardly and touching his leg; it’s clear from the footage that he was in some discomfort.
Lloris then fails to prevent the strike from Eder hitting the back of the net, despite the fact he had a clear view of the shot.
The goal wouldn't have happened had Lloris gone down
It’s impossible to tell whether the 29-year-old ‘keeper would have prevented Eder’s effort from going in had he not hurt himself moments earlier.
But the goal would probably never have happened had Lloris gone down and received treatment from the French medical staff.
