In the World Cup final this Sunday against Argentina, the Blues will start with the Varane-Upamecano hinge and striker Olivier Giroud


Didier Deschamps does not do innovation after all.

After having tested several associations during the last training session on Saturday, the coach of the Blues opted for continuity by trusting his strong men since the start of the competition.

Recovered from the virus that had affected him in recent days, vice-captain Raphaël Varane is making his comeback.

He will be supported by Dayot Upamecano who, after remaining on the bench in the semi-finals due to this same virus, finds his place for the final against Argentina, this Sunday (4 p.m. French time).

The composition of the Blues

Lloris (cap.) - Koundé, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez - Griezmann, Tchouaméni, Rabiot - Dembélé, Giroud, Mbappé

The Bavarian is preferred to Ibrahima Konaté.

Finally, it is Olivier Giroud who will start at the forefront of the tricolor attack.

Marcus Thuram had been tried the day before, on the left wing, during a set-up, with Kylian Mbappé at the forefront.

But the Milanese retains his place.
