Didier Deschamps will be hoping that his France side can make it two wins from two in this international break after defeating Portugal 2-1 last weekend.

France have one of the most talented groups of players in Europe and they have been on a good undefeated run since they lost to World Champions Germany in the last World Cup in Brazil.

The Premier League is well represented in terms of French players although there will be no place in the side for Hugo Lloris, with Deschamps confirming that the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper misses this game.

That creates extra strain for experienced players in the defence such as Chelsea and Manchester United linked Raphael Varane who will be eager to impress.

Varane continues to be linked with an exit from Real Madrid and this is a great chance for him to prove that Real Madrid would be foolish to even consider letting him leave.
