France: Bosnia-Herzegovina are first up this international break for the French with Ukraine away and Finland at home to come. With the transfer window closing, Deschamps will be grateful that his players can concentrate on their duties after months of speculation. It is also a chance to get their UEFA Euro 2020 disappointment out of their system.
Bosnia-Herzegovina: A 2-2 draw away at Finland and a narrow 1-0 loss at home to France which is not ideal and another meeting with Les Bleus makes the upcoming doubleheader with Kazakhstan vital for Bosnian hopes. There is also a home clash with Finland and Ukraine home and away.
An easy with for the French as they get the qualifying window off on the right foot. Look for them to score a few goals, in an easy free flowing victory. Pick: France 3-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina.
