Didier Deschamps: 'We need to prove ourselves at the World Cup'

France manager Didier Deschamps says that he is desperate for the country to achieve success in the World Cup this summer.

France manager Didier Deschamps has said that he is desperate for the country to achieve success in the World Cup this summer.

The 45-year-old captained Les Bleus to victory in the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 and has admitted that it has been too long since they impressed at a major tournament.

"The last good result achieved by a French national team was [reaching] the final in 2006. That's eight years ago – that's quite a while now," Deschamps told

"Generations are changing, young players are coming in with a lot of skill. We will need to prove ourselves at the World Cup this summer."

France have been drawn in Group E alongside Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador for this summer's finals in Brazil.
