France head coach Didier Deschamps feels that his side are right on course to do well in the 2014 World Cup, after a crushing 5-2 win over Switzerland in their second Group E game.

Olivier Giroud, Blaise Matuidi, Mathieu Valbuena, Karim Benzema and Moussa Sissoko all registered their names on the scoresheets as France took a big stride in securing a place in the round of sixteen.

And, Deschamps, who watched the Les Bleus emerge victorious in their opening game against Honduras, was pleased with his side's overall performance against a "strong Swiss team."

"That was a very good match, we did a lot of things right. Five goals against a strong Swiss team, we've got six points, that's ideal," said the 45-year-old boss, who was France's captain when they emerged victorious in the 1998 World Cup.

However, Deschamps admits that he was a little disappointed to see his side conceded two goals towards the end of the game. While Blerim Dzemaili found the nets through a 35 yard free-kick in the 81st minute, Granit Xhaka added another four minutes later.

"It was more than perfect before those two goals. It's a beautiful evening," he added.

Despite doing well in their opening two group games, Deschamps insists that France will need to "start from scratch again in the next round."

"We've got a group with strong opponents. We've prepared well but have to get through the match with Ecuador and then we'll start from scratch again in the next round."

Although France are on the brink of securing a place in the final 16 of the 2014 World Cup, needing only a draw in their last fixture against Ecuador to top the group, Deschamps was quick to dismiss the "favourites" tag, saying that he is still focused on the Les Bleus final group game against Ecuador.

"If there is a draw between Honduras and Ecuador we are qualified. Otherwise, there will be a third game that will decide the final ranking. Are we are favourites? No, we have a group to get through. We were well prepared for these two games and we were effective. The knockout stages are a new competition," added the former Juventus boss.
