If (both) Pogba and Matuidi start , then you forget about winning world cup or even reaching semis

One of them has to be benched

Nah they play fine with NT. I care little about club form.

Too much talent but how well does it come together? The team play is improving but it still does not look like the finished article. I doubt the best formation and lineup is set in stone.

Do you like the idea of playing Griezmann as a number 9? I like it more than seeing him on the wings. It allows Pogba to play at the left of a midfield three where he is most effective and being able to play an extra midfielder may allow France to take better control of the game. Giroud can be used more as an impact substitute.

We're very much like Real Madrid...  we play our best against teams that come out and play us.  We don't do that well when teams PTB or sit back.  Very direct players with speed.  Don't like to build up. DD is a Serie A manager for all intents and purposes tactically and that's how we set up.

As a result, our performances may look uneven.  But we're most dangerous against the bigger teams as a result.

Had a lot of injuries too.  This is the first time that, other than Koscielny, we have our complete squad since before the Euro (Varane was out for the Euro).

An excellent post. Thumbs up I had some similar thoughts. This team lacks quality build up, relies on fast attackers and a lot of individual quality in the final third.

Come to think of it what you just said might explain why France beat Germany at Euro 2016 and then succumbed to Portugal.

Amazing! Giroud and Matuidi both benched with Dembele and Tolisso getting the nod according to l'Equipe. They saw both of them look really dejected in the afternoon practice session once they were told about their change in status.

Sidibe also out for this game injured.

Starting 11:

Lloris
Pavard - Varane - Umtiti - Mendy
Tolisso - Kante - Pogba
Griezmann - Mbappe - Dembele
