Faced with the absence of Lucas Hernandez and Paul Pogba, Didier Deschamps should start Lucas Digne and Steven Nzonzi against the Netherlands, Friday (20:45) in the League of Nations in Rotterdam. This strong trend in recent days has been confirmed by the opposition in camera pre-game, this Thursday at Kuip.
The Everton defender was associated with Varane, Kimpembe and Pavard in defense. This defensive quartet was lined up on October 11 at Guingamp against Iceland (2-2). AS Roma midfielder was associated with N'Golo Kanté in midfield, among the likely holders.
A draw is enough for the Blues
The world champions worked two systems. They started in a 4-4-2, with Mbappé on the right and Matuidi on the left, around the Giroud-Griezmann duo. Then they finished the session in a 4-3-3, the young Parisian star changing side to take the left wing and that of Atletico Madrid occupying the right lane.
A draw is enough for the Blues to qualify for the Final Four of the League of Nations from June 6 to 9, 2019 in Portugal or Italy.
