Layvin, talk us through your two goals against Kazakhstan...
Geoffrey put the first one on a plate for me, all I had to do was score. The second was more important. Kazakhstan had just pulled one back and the goal restored our advantage. Maybe it wasn't the toughest match for us (France won 5-1), but it secured our place in the qualifying play-offs for the 2015 Euro U21s.
I focus on my work, my team and what I can contribute.
As the France squad looks ahead to Euro 2016, some players are regularly talked about as representing the "new guard". How do you handle being part of that?
To be quite honest, I don't pay any attention to it. I try to stay focused on my performances on the pitch. I'm not going to start thinking about all the other stuff that goes on, that would be a big mistake. I focus on my work, my team and what I can contribute.
You missed the final group game against Iceland on Monday. Can you tell us more about that?
I finished the game in Kazakhstan no problems, but at training the next day my thigh felt tight. Coach Mankowski and I decided not to risk it. We've got some important matches coming up for club and country in the next few weeks. As we're already guaranteed a play-off place, we figured it was best for me to sit this one out. Now we'll keep an eye on it, see how it evolves, but right now I'm pretty optimistic.
I can hear the Champions League anthem getting louder and louder in my head. I've spent so many "CL" nights in front of the TV...
The 2015 Euro U21s will count towards qualification for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Are you already thinking ahead to that?
No, because there's a long way to go until Rio yet. We have to get through the play-offs and then reach the last four of the Euros. It's far too early to start thinking about the Olympics. Today, I'm concentrating more on our next league game against Lyon. Also, I must admit that with a week to go until the start of the Champions League, I can hear the anthem getting louder and louder in my head. I've spent so many "CL" nights in front of the TV...
What's the feeling among the squad going into the next two fixtures against Lyon and Bayer Leverkusen?
We have an extraordinary opportunity to show all the doubters that we can surprise them. It's up to us to take it.
