The French team, leading their United Nations League team, needs a draw or victory in Rotterdam on November 16 to organize their card in the final stages of June. This will be welcomed following Uruguay in Stade de France, November 20 friendly.
On the other hand, Didier Deschamps will probably need to recompose defensive animation, has already failed against Iceland and Germany at the last international meeting, even if the Blues remained undefeated.
Always injured, Samuel Umtiti is a disappointment, however. Rafael Varane, addict, has just returned to the race but has not been in the Real Madrid team for the Champions League this week, most likely to be awarded for Blues.
Clement Langlet is best located in the central axis?
On the left, Lucas Hernandez suffers from a muscle injury in his right thigh and should also miss the rally. Finally, to make matters worse, they are in the most difficult club, mainly by Rami (Marseille), Benjamin Fabard (Stuttgart) and Jibril Cedeva (Monaco).
In the middle, if Kimpamba, guilty of some mistakes in October with the Blues, could redeem himself, there is at least room to catch, looking at three young defenders: Aymeric Laporte, Clement Langlet and Diallo.
Laporte, whose last call to France returns to March 2017, appears in Manchester City, but has a complicated relationship with Deschamps and the Blues, as when he supported Adrian long after his withdrawal to the World Cup.
Espoirs International Clément Lenglet becomes an increasingly reliable defender of Barcelona, as demonstrated by his performance in the Classic de Liga against Real Madrid (5-1). For Abdo Diallo (22), the captain of the Espoys, he signed a very good season with Borussia Dortmund. But recently he was injured and has only been saved in the Champions League.
Anthony combat, form and versatility to argue
On the sides, while the two right sides were ghosts this fall, Didier Deschamps could have done something new, with Montpellier Ruben Aguilar, Leones Fernande Mendy or Marseille Bonne Sar, registered in October? Or mention an old man who has not seen Clairefontaine since 2015, Stéphanois Mathieu Debuchy? Answer on Thursday at 14 hours.
In attack, Anthony Martial, who has not tasted the blues since March, can legitimately believe his chances. Manchester United, 22, has already taken the lead – with five goals in the last four days of the Premier League – and he showers with compliments from his teammates. But his performance in France team was never convinced, except during the friendly in Germany (2-2) of November 2017, as Alexander Lacazette.
The gunner is also fit with his club. Just a problem, unless he changes his plans, Deschamps explained in the past that he could use Olivier Giroud or Killian Mbappé point and had no reason to stack the players in this situation. Conversely, on the left, fighting, 18 choices, could benefit from the absence of Thomas Lamar, who was injured in the thigh and probably not available.
