After losing 1-0 at home to Croatia on Monday, France can no longer successfully defend their Nations League title.



The finals are now out of reach.

They had been deceiving in their first three games of the month, losing one and drawing the other two, and they were no better against a tenacious Croatia at the Stade de France.

With a needless early penalty conceded, which Luka Modric took full advantage of five minutes in, they were shown to be their own worst enemy.

On another poor day for the reigning world champions, the hosts' effort was plenty of bravado but lacking in nuance, with clear-cut chances hard to come by.

The penalty was awarded when Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate clumsily tripped Ante Budimir.
