Paul Pogba was instrumental in France's World Cup win, but Les Bleus failed to replicate that form in the Nations League, finishing second behind Netherlands in League A Group One.
And Pogba has acknowledged that it was difficult for Didier Deschamps' squad to motivate themselves after the triumph in Russia, but has no doubts over France's ability to do so for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
"After the World Cup we didn't qualify for the Nation League Cup… that's how it's called?" Pogba said.
"There are several factors including tiredness and mental fatigue, it's stressful. We just ended a huge competition.
"The players were tired after a long season. It's a part of it. It will not prevent us to play the qualifiers and to go through [to Euro 2020]."
