Team News: Arsenal duo Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud left out for France's World Cup opener

Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud are both on the France bench for Les Bleus' opening World Cup fixture against Honduras.

Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud are both on the France bench for Les Bleus' opening World Cup fixture against Honduras this evening.

Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho gets the nod ahead of Koscielny in central defence, while Giroud has to settle for a place in the dugout as Karim Benzema leads the line.

Mathieu Valbuena and Antoine Griezmann start either side of the Real Madrid man, with a midfield trio of Yohan Cabaye, Blaise Matuidi and Paul Pogba behind.

The Hondurans, meanwhile, go with the same XI that drew with England in their final warm-up friendly a week ago.

France: Lloris; Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra; Cabaye, Matuidi, Pogba; Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann
