How France could line up against Hungary

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how France could line up for their Euro 2020 clash with Hungary on Saturday.

France will need to make a careful assessment of right-back Benjamin Pavard before they travel to Budapest to take on Hungary for Saturday's Euro 2020 Group F clash.

The Bayern Munich man was knocked unconscious for several seconds against Germany after colliding with Robin Gosens, but in a highly controversial move, he still completed the full 90 minutes and is reported to be training normally.

Leo Dubois is ready to fill in if necessary, although he did not make Didier Deschamps's squad for the 1-0 win over Die Mannschaft, while Lucas Hernandez is good to go on the opposite flank after providing the assist for Mats Hummels's own goal on Tuesday.

Paul Pogba garnered praise for his performance in the engine room - despite being the victim of an apparent bite from Antonio Rudiger - while Adrien Rabiot should once again get the nod over Corentin Tolisso to partner the Manchester United man and N'Golo Kante.

Bayern Munich attacker Kingsley Coman was allowed to leave the camp temporarily for the birth of his child, and while he should be available for this encounter, he is unlikely to start.

An identical XI to that of their win in Munich would see Antoine Griezmann once again feature a little bit deeper, as Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema form a fear-inducing strikeforce once again.

Both men had goals ruled out for offside against Germany and will be determined to right the wrongs of that evening, but Benzema, surprisingly, has never scored for Les Bleus at the Euros, despite having 28 efforts on goal in the finals.

France possible starting lineup: Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez; Pogba, Kante, Rabiot; Griezmann; Mbappe, Benzema
