Ukraine vs. France, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Lineups
It's the first leg of the UEFA World Cup playoffs, and Ukraine are hosting France. Can they hold off Les Bleus' big guns?
In order to have any hope of getting past France and progressing to the World Cup, Ukraine are going to have to make the most out of the 90 minutes they spend in Kiev. Unless they win here, barring a miracle they're toast for the return leg.
There's also every incentive for Les Bleus to go for it at the Olympic Stadium -- some away goals would go a long way toward Completely securing qualification. So there's incentive for both teams to come out and attack, which means we might see the rare important international game that's also entertaining. Fun times to be had by all!
