Germany relegated from Nations League top tier to cap miserable 2018

The result means Germany have been relegated from the elite tier in the UEFA Nations League, but France now need Die Mannschaft to defeat the Dutch on Monday.

"We have to ask questions of ourselves after and hope that the Germans beat them on Monday".

"We've have shown we are broken the slump but I did not expect that we would be so much better through 90 minutes", said a delighted Ronald Koeman after a 2-0 win in Rotterdam inflicted a first defeat on the French since they won the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"There was a team in front of us with a lot of envy and we were not good enough", Deschamps was quoted as saying on the French Football Federation website. "The score could have been even more flattering for the Dutch", said Lloris, easily France's best performer.

France finally creaked into action not long after, but offered little going forward, and with the match rolling into injury time Lloris once again saved his team's blushes with a superb save from Frenkie De Jong's long-range strike following a rapid breakaway.

'We played below our potential and we paid for it.

Donald Trump Defends Demand for Forest Management in Response to California Wildfires
In his Fox News interview on the eve of his visit, the president repeated his criticism. "You need forest management". More than 3,300 firefighters are making progress against the massive wildfire, which was 67% contained as of Friday.

Few would have given the Dutch - who have missed out on the last two major tournaments - any chance when they were paired with the last two World Cup winners in the same group for the new tournament.

If the Netherlands can win against France but just earns a draw against Germany, France and the Netherlands would be in a tiebreak situation at the top of the group to determine who goes to the semifinals.

Former Southampton and Everton boss Koeman said: "This was a complete match at the very highest level".

"I also did not expect that this team would be as far in their reading of a match. From the beginning to the end we played really well".

France meet Uruguay in a friendly on Tuesday and coach Didier Deschamps will be looking for a much-improved performance from that produced at De Kuip.

'That's why everyone in the group deserves a big compliment'.
