While Les Bleus are preparing for a World Cup next year, the Dragons are trying to figure out how to improve their chances

Wales play their penultimate game of 2017 when they take on France in Paris on Friday and they are looking to build for the future.

Les Bleus will use their end-of-year friendly to experiment ahead of the World Cup year, but Chris Coleman's have no such concerns having missed out on a place at the tournament.

A disappointing defeat to the Republic of Ireland in their final qualifier extinguished Welsh hopes of making it to Russia, so their attentions will now be set further down the line.

The future of Wales manager Chris Coleman remains unclear after he failed to steer Wales to the World Cup.

Having guided the team to the semi-finals of the European Championship in 2016, the former Real Sociedad boss was determined to reach Russia in 2018, but a series of disappointing results cost him.

After failing to qualify for the World Cup, the clash against France and the subsequent game against Panama have lost their appeal somewhat for the Welsh, but they will be hoping to give their fans something to cheer nevertheless.

Coleman was left severely deflated after defeat to the Republic of Ireland ended his side's chances of making the tournament, but the 47-year-old has said that he does not to leave his post on such a low. In the meantime, as he mulls over his next move, he can attempt to begin sowing the seeds of recovery for his country.
