Tbilisi: France coach Didier Deschamps has insisted he is unconcerned by his team's continued failure to find the net, setting a record five goalless matches in a row.

France's World Cup qualifying 0-0 draw in Georgia on Friday night meant the former Juventus, Marseille and Monaco coach's team have made history for all the wrong reasons.

Their last goal came in March in a 3-1 win over Georgia at home, but since then they have lost 1-0 to Spain in their European zone qualifying Group I, been beaten in friendlies by Uruguay (1-0) and Brazil (3-0) and played out a goalless draw with Belgium in another friendly.
