As reported by French outlet RMC Sport, Deschamps claimed the loss was more a result of his decision to field an inexperienced side, rather than any tactical issues.
He said: 'I don’t think it’s a shipwreck, we also had a lot of chances but we were ineffective, we made some errors when playing out from the back.
'It’s a young French side, where for the majority of the players don’t have experience at the very highest level.
