Didier Deschamps promises to field his best team to date, despite a number of absentees in the defensive sector. And there are already real indications of the starting eleven expected against the Batavians. A 4-3-3 formation.

Les Bleus’ probable line-up for Amsterdam: Maignan – Clauss, Konaté, L. Hernandez, T. Hernandez – Griezmann, Tchouaméni, Rabiot – Coman, Giroud, Mbappé.
