Announced as uncertain, Raphaël Varane will be present at the kickoff, alongside a Dayot Upamecano preferred to Ibrahima Konaté, yet seen very to his advantage in the semi-final against Morocco (2-0).

But the Bayern Munich player kept the advantage in the coach's mind.

In midfield, Adrien Rabiot also resumes his place after his withdrawal from the semi-finals, Youssouf Fofana returning to the bench.

The attacking sector remains unchanged with the Mbappé-Giroud-Dembélé trio, and Antoine Griezmann in support.

A time mentioned to strengthen the left corridor on the defensive level, Marcus Thuram will be replacing.

The starting 11 of the French team:

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