Didier Deschamps is new France coach, replacing Laurent Blanc

France's 1998 World Cup-winning captain left Marseille almost a week ago and replaces Laurent Blanc, who quit after the national side's Euro 2012 quarter-final defeat by Spain, the eventual winners.

Deschamps' first job will be to unite an often fractious squad as they attempt to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil via a difficult group, including Spain, who are also world champions.
