Olivier Giroud scored twice as France stayed top of Group A thanks to a 3-1 win away in Luxembourg.
France took the lead with an easy chance for Olivier Giroud, but they conceded a shock goal when Blaise Matuidi pulled down Da Mota in the penalty box. Aurelien Joachim scored confidently from the spot.
Minutes later, France had a penalty of their own which Antoine Griezmann converted to give his side the lead.
In the second half, France struggled to break down their opponents as they failed to add either speed or numbers in attack, until Giroud grabbed his second.
France's win pulled them ahead of Sweden at the top of Group as they reached 13 points, with Netherlands trailing six points back after their defeat to Bulgaria.
France were oddly complacent. Group A is no sure thing, with the Netherlands and Sweden two other dangerous teams in a relatively tough group. The match against Luxembourg could have been easy if France raised the tempo and tried, but they seemed content to toil and slog instead. They appear to be missing a leader like Patrice Evra.
