Difficult to see very clearly after the closed session of the Blues this Wednesday at Clairefontaine.

In one specific case at least.

Didier Deschamps still has a session, Thursday at the end of the day at the Stade de France to have all the data in his possession.

Even if the coach already knows deep down what will be his starting eleven to face the Netherlands (8:45 p.m., TF1) on Friday at the start of qualifying for Euro 2024.

Out of sight in the bucolic national center, the boss of the vice-world champions placed Randal Kolo Muani on the side of the holders in the first period during the session of the day, before the unfortunate hero of the Cup final no one gives way to Olivier Giroud.

Translation: the two men are in competition to start in Saint-Denis.

For the rest, there is no doubt about the team that will be lined up, barring last-minute injury, against Ronald Koeman's team.

Mike Maignan, designated successor to Hugo Lloris, will be in goal, with a four-man defense in front of him, like in Doha three months ago.

On the right, Jules Koundé is ahead of Benjamin Pavard, on the left, Théo Hernandez is the only specialist in the position (Camavinga, training midfielder, will be a substitute) and the hinge will be made up of Ibrahima Konaté and Dayot Upamecano.

With the international retirement of Raphaël Varane, the duo have clearly taken the lead over Jean-Clair Todibo and Axel Disasi.

In the middle, Adrien Rabiot and Aurélien Tchouaméni are some starters with Antoine Griezmann in a hybrid position, as during the last World Cup.

The now vice-captain of the Blues will return to the heart of the game when the ball is lost, before posting in support of the leading striker in the offensive phase.

On the right, Kingsley Coman will take advantage of Ousmane Dembélé's package and Kylian Mbappé, the new captain, will have the opportunity to play on the left or a little more in the axis if Kolo Muani is established.

Reply within 24 hours.

The possible eleven of the Blues against the Netherlands:


Maignan – Koundé, Konaté, Upamecano, Hernandez – Tchouaméni, Rabiot – Coman, Griezmann, Mbappé (cap) – Giroud or Kolo Muani
