France manager Didier Deschamps plays down his side's chances of winning the World Cup, despite their impressive start to the tournament.

France manager Didier Deschamps has played down his side's chances of winning the World Cup, despite their impressive start to the tournament.

Les Bleus followed up their 3-0 win over Honduras last weekend by cruising to an emphatic 5-2 victory over Switzerland this evening.

While Deschamps admits that his team have played well in their opening group games, he believes that they will face tougher tests in the knockout stages.

"Winning 5-2 is something incredible and having six points after two games is ideal," he told reporters.

"We're not qualified yet, but we do have a very good chance of going through. There is one more game to decide our fate. We prepared well for these two matches and were very effective.

"Are we the favourites for the World Cup? No, these are the opening rounds and there are still stronger teams out there."

France have reached the World Cup final in two of the previous four tournaments.
