Les Bleus got their World Cup preparations underway in emphatic style in Paris as they hammered the Norwegians 4-0.
"It was great," Deschamps is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "The stadium was full and we'd had a good week. It materialised in the match, we had all the ingredients.
"We had intensity, determination. I was able to give players some playing time and there is a collective desire."
France play their penultimate friendly ahead of this summer's World Cup on Sunday, when they entertain Paraguay.
