Laurent Blanc is left confused as to why Greece, Norway and Croatia are seeded higher than France.

France coach Laurent Blanc was left confused after his side were drawn with World Cup winners Spain in the qualification group for the 2014 tournament.

Blanc was keen to voice his displeasure at the result of last night’s draw in Brazil, at which his team were placed the same group as Belarus, Georgia and Finland.

Blanc said: "I don't understand why France is in the second group? Why are Greece, Norway and Croatia ranked higher?"

"Spain is the world champion. Barcelona won the Champions League. I know everything about them but the qualifiers start after 2012. I've got time to improve my team."

Blanc left his job as Bordeaux coach and took over the national side after Raymond Domenech left after their disastrous 2010 World Cup campaign.
