Injuries have already affected their preparations, with Karim Benzema the latest casualty. Deschamps will stick with his current lineup and will not name a substitute.
Hugo Lloris might set a new record for France during the World Cup. He has the potential to become the most capped player in France’s national football team history.
Lloris currently has 139 international caps to his name while record holder Lilian Thuram has 142.
Raphael Varane will not be risked and therefore Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate will be representing in the heart of the defense. Lucas Hernandez will start on the left while Benjamin Pavard will get the nod on the right.
Adrien Rabiot’s good form will be taken into consideration and the Juventus midfielder will form a two-man midfield with Aurelien Tchouameni. Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele will have the responsibility to drive down the attack from the flanks and Antoine Griezmann will start just behind the main striker.
Olivier Giroud will lead the line.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Pavard, Upamecano, Konate, Lucas Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud
