​Arsenal forward Lacazette confident France can 'go a long way' in Russia

Alexandre Lacazette says France have the necessary tools to make some waves at next year's World Cup in Russia.

Les Blues will qualify for the tournament with a win over Bulgaria on Saturday.

"We have to qualify first before we start talking about Russia," Lacazette said. "I hope I will have a role in the team.

"For now I'm in the squad and I just hope to be one of those selected to play in a match and go as far a I can.

"We have a lot of young talented players as well as a group of very established players. That's a great combination that could help us to go a long way in Russia.

"I know that playing well at Arsenal improves my chances with the French team and vice versa. If I play well for the French team, then the the boss is pleased so it's a win-win situation."'
