“I am very happy to score,” Debuchy said after the game, “but I score or not, it doesn’t change too much. The most important thing is the fact that it connects and that you can climb in the standings.

“It has always been my goal to get back in the France team since I am not the biggest selection,” he added. “There’s a moment where I could not hope because I do not play. Now that I’m playing, yes, I hope [to be selected for Russia].

“If I have the chance to be there, so much the better for me, otherwise I will be watching the world Cup in front of my TV.”
