How France could line up against Bolivia

Sports Mole looks at how France could line up in Sunday night's international friendly against Bolivia.

France will warm up for their next two Euro 2020 qualification matches against Turkey and Andorra by facing Bolivia in an international friendly on Sunday night.

The 2018 World Cup winners have made the perfect start to their Euro 2020 qualification campaign, beating Moldova and Iceland to sit top of Group H on six points.

Didier Deschamps's side will now be looking to make it back-to-back friendly victories, having overcome Uruguay in their last non-competitive fixture in the latter stages of 2018.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how France could line up for the contest.


Captain Hugo Lloris has been named in the squad but the 32-year-old will be in action for Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final on Saturday night, meaning that Paris Saint-Germain's Alphonse Areola should start between the sticks.

Barcelona's Clement Lenglet will be hoping to make his international bow, although teammate Samuel Umtiti and Real Madrid's Raphael Varane are expected to start at the heart of the defence.

Chelsea pair N'Golo Kante and Olivier Giroud are unlikely to feature having been involved in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, but Manchester United's Paul Pogba should start in the middle of the park.

Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele - strongly linked with Tottenham Hotspur - could also make the XI, with Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe also both expected to start.

There are four uncapped players in the squad - Lenglet, Benjamin Lecomte, Mike Maignan and Leo Dubois - while Sevilla's Wissam Ben Yedder has just one France appearance to his name and could lead the attack in Giroud's absence.
