Spain not occupying Deschamps´ attention – yet

France coach Didier Deschamps insists that fixating on their next meeting with Spain is futile.

Instead, Deschamps is concentrating on their upcoming World Cup qualifying game against Georgia in March.

Les Bleus face Germany in a February friendly before recommencing their 2014 World Cup qualification campaign against the eastern European nation on March 22.

They are set to face Spain just four days after the Georgia clash – a match Deschamps believes is crucial for them to gain momentum in for the mouth-watering Group I clash on home soil.

“I’m looking at events chronologically,” the former Marseille boss told Foot Mag. “On February 6, we have a prestigious friendly match against Germany.

“It will allow us to catch up after nearly three months since our last meeting, and prepare for the game against Georgia that precedes our Spain match.

“If we want to present ourselves in the best condition against the Spaniards, beating the Georgians will be imperative.

“Saying this may seem tired, but Georgia hung on against Spain (until the end). For me, that game is the most important.”

France sit second in Group I on seven points, behind the World Cup and European Championship holders on goal difference, despite having held them to a 1-1 draw on their own turf in 2012.
