Confirmed: France line-up v Armenia - Lloris starts, Martial on the bench

Here is how France will line up to face Armenia this evening.

France starting XI: Lloris; Sagna, Varane, Sakho, Evra; Cabaye, Diarra, Matuidi; Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann.

France substitutes: Areola, Mandanda, Jallet, Zouma, Mangala, Digne, Schneiderlin, M.Sissoko, Lacazette, Martial, Giroud.

France have no qualifiers for Euro 2016 given that they are hosting the tournament, so Didier Deschamps has to make do with friendly matches to keep his side in shape.

After being knocked out in the quarter finals of the World Cup by Germany last year, Les Blues are hoping for much better on home soil next summer.

With stars such as Hugo Lloris, Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba, Antoine Grizemann and Karim Benzema, Deschamps certainly has talent at his disposal - and a number of those players face Armenia tonight.

Tottenham hero Lloris starts in goal, and has a solid back four of Bacary Sagna, Raphael Varane, Mamadou Sakho and Patrice Evra in front of him.

A midfield trio of Yohan Cabaye, Lassana Diarra and Blaise Matuidi provides experience, whilst there is plenty of attacking firepower in Mathieu Valbuena, Benzema and Griezmann at the top of the pitch.

Deschamps also has Premier League stars Eliaquim Mangala, Morgan Schneiderlin, Moussa Sissoko and Anthony Martial on his bench, and could call upon them for playing time in what is expected to be a comfortable victory for France.
