Tue 05 October 2021 | 16:02

Rafael Varane was one of the pillars of France winning the 2018 World Cup and now he wants to help Les Bleus rediscover this form in the Nations League.

France will face Belgium in the Nations League semi-final and the defender hopes to forget their recent failure at Euro 2020 and become the team they were in at the 2018 World Cup.

The

Manchester United

centre-back called on his teammates in the national team to use the victory against

Finland

as a confidence booster for the next game and reach the final of the tournament.

"

We finished the last game very well,"

 Varane told reporters at Tuesday's pre-match news conference.

"We needed it to revive a dynamic, to regain that confidence. When we chained draws together, there could have been less confidence, but these are the hazards of high-level football.

"We must build on this to continue to maintain this positive dynamic and gain new momentum, with greater success.

"There are all the qualities in this group. It's up to us to succeed in triggering this confidence and success which has enabled us to be world champions.

"We know that it takes this energy, this little madness sometimes in the game to create it."
