By Football News



France comfortably saw off the threat of Georgia in their World Cup qualifier in Paris on Friday, securing a 3-1 victory.

Arsenal midfielder Olivier Giroud broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time for Les Bleus, and Mathieu Valbuena doubled the buffer two minutes after the interval.

Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery then made it three just past the hour mark.

Alexander Kobakhidze got something out of the game for the Georgians, firing in a consolation goal on 71 minutes.
