What Wll Be The Composition Of The France Team Tonight Against Ecuador?

The Blues will have to wait until tonight to set foot on the Maracana lawn. While a final training session was scheduled yesterday in the legendary Rio stadium, FIFA has indeed invited Hugo Lloris and his partners to come to the Olympic stadium to refine their final settings. All to preserve the pitch where the Blues will face Ecuador.

With which team? Didier Deschamps did not reveal anything about his plans. But the spying sessions of a few journalists who have been staying at home in recent days or hotel rooms overlooking the Ribeirao Preto stadium have provided some clues. The face of the France team should be different from that displayed against Switzerland last Friday: six changes are on the list.

Sakho's thigh healed?

The circumstances dictate some. That is the case for suspended Yohan Cabaye, who could be replaced by Morgan Schneiderlin rather than Rio Mavuba. It would mark the first start for the Southampton midfielder, who had played a few minutes against Jamaica. The absence of Raphaƫl Varane, a victim of gastroenteritis, will undoubtedly allow Laurent Koscielny to start the meeting alongside Mamadou Sakho, whose thigh seems to have healed. Finally, Patrice Evra, under suspension, would be replaced by Parisian Lucas Digne, who would thus honour his third selection.

The tricolour staff could also tempt to blow some players a few days before the most likely round of 16. Mathieu Debuchy and Mathieu Valbuena fall into this category. The first would be replaced by Bakari Sagna, the second by Moussa Sissoko, who started against Switzerland, but who would then go up a notch. In this hypothesis, Paul Pogba, replacing last Friday, would find his place in a three-way environment.

Finally, Antoine Griezmann and Loic Remy are in contention to complete an attacking trio in which Karim Benzema would find the axis unless Didier Deschamps has other surprises in store.
