First-half dominance pleases Deschamps

France's first-half display in their victory over Denmark pleased Didier Deschamps, who urged his players to maintain their form.

Didier Deschamps hailed France's first-half showing in Sunday's 2-0 win over Denmark at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard in Saint-Etienne.

The Euro 2016 hosts were in fine form prior to the break as Alexandre Lacazette opened his international account before Olivier Giroud doubled the lead.

France perhaps should have enjoyed a healthier lead at the break and were almost made to pay when Stephane Ruffier was forced into two smart second-half saves from Lars Jacobsen and Nicklas Bendtner.

Deschamps, whose side next face Belgium and Albania in June, told TF1: "We did better things in the first half.

"The rhythm then dropped a lot, which with many changes is only logical.

"There are a core of players. Players must now focus on their domestic and European competitions."
