"Apparently, drones are used more and more," Deschamps said. "It's not up to me. FIFA handles this and has been carrying out an inquiry; we don't want any intrusion into our privacy. It's very hard to fight this these days."

French news channel BFM TV reported that the drone did not belong to Honduras, the team that France will face today at 3 p.m.
