(QHA) -

France stunned Ukraine 3-0 in Paris to secure a place at next year's World Cup finals in Brazil, Eurosport reports.

Having lost 2-0 in the first-leg of the playoff in Kiev on Friday, the pressure was on the French squad to deliver a near-perfect game at the Stade de France in the outskirts of Paris on Friday night.

The French side had to score at least three times without sacrificing any points to walk away as the winner of the playoff.

Ukraine lost its chance to play in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
