[EURO 2012 QUALIFYING] An embarrassment on and off the field at the 2010 World Cup, France suffered further humiliation as it fell to Belarus, 1-0, at home in its opening game of Euro 2012 qualifying.

Sergei Kislyak scored in the 86th minute to sink the French.

While the crowd of 77,000 at the Stade de France cheered new coach Laurent Blanc and encouraged his players with chants of "Allez les Bleus," nothing went right for the French and the fans whistled when they left the field.

Starting forward Loic Remy was injured in the first half and went off, and striker Louis Saha, returning to international action after a four-year absence, had to leave 10 minutes after he came on in the second half.

Sept. 3 in St. Denis
France 0 Belarus 1. Goal: Kislyak 86.
France -- Lloris, Sagna, Rami, Mexes, Clichy, Menez (Saha, 69, Gameiro, 80), M’Vila, Diaby, Malouda, Remy (Valbuena, 34), Hoarau.
Belarus -- Zhevnov,Kulchy, Martynovich, Yurevich, Tigorev, Omelyanchuk, Kutuzov (Kislyak, 75), Rodionov (Kornilenko, 85), V.Hleb, A.Hleb, Shitov.
Att.: 77,000.
