Wild celebrations as France qualify
- From the section Football
France become the first European team to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit to reach the World Cup with a thrilling 3-0 victory over 10-man Ukraine.
The result sparked wild celebrations after the match with players spraying champagne over journalists gathered in the stadium.
France coach Didier Deschamps had asked for an "exceptional" match from his team and they replied in some style as they handed Ukraine their first defeat of 2013 and avoided becoming the first French side to miss out on the World Cup since they failed to qualify for the 1994 finals.
