France's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan next month has been moved from the Stade de France to the Parc des Princes because of planned works on the express train line to Charles de Gaulle airport, the French federation (FFF) said on Friday.

"The French Football Federation has been informed today by the Prefecture of Police that this match could not be organised at the Stade de France due to the works of the future Charles de Gaulle Express," the FFF said in a statement.
