England Vs France: Talking Tactics

Gareth Southgate will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name the same starting XI for this game. Harry Kane will continue to lead the line in the front while Jordan Pickford keeps his place in goal hoping to keep another clean sheet.

Didier Deschamps will very likely set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation which has been working for the team. He is expected to make no changes to the playing XI as Olivier Giroud leads the charge up top while Hugo Lloris operates in between the sticks.


Team News

Southgate will remain without the services of Callum Wilson and Ben White as the former is nursing a minor strain while the latter is away for personal reasons. The England coach was handed a fresh concern over Declan Rice as he suffered from illness on Wednesday and missed training but his ailment will not keep him away from the encounter on Saturday.

England Predicted XI

Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Bellingham, Rice, Henderson; Saka, Kane, Foden


Les Blues were handed a scare as Kylian Mbappe was not seen in training on Tuesday due to discomfort in his ankle but he returned soon after and remains fully fit to feature on Saturday. Furthermore, Aurelien Tchouameni and Jules Kounde remain just one yellow card away from missing out on the next game although Deschamps could be willing to take the risk.

France Predicted XI

Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud
