Deschamps Signs New Deal With France National Team Until 2020

Didier Deschamps has extended his contract as France coach until 2020, the French Football Federation (FFF) has announced.
FFF president Noel Le Graet made the announcement on Tuesday, saying Deschamps will stay in charge until the end of Euro 2020.

Deschamps took over from Laurent Blanc in 2012 and led Les Bleus to the final of Euro 2016 on home soil, where they lost to Portugal.
He led them to next year's World Cup with just one defeat in their 10 qualifying matches, having reached the quarterfinals of the 2014 edition.
Le Graet told a news conference: "Didier for me is the best, it is no contest. The France team is progressing with Didier. I want to give him the chance to lead the team at the World Cup and the next Euro. Regardless of the team's performance, he will remain the coach until the end of Euro 2020.''
Deschamps won 103 caps for France and captained the nation to their 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 triumphs.
