Didier Deschamp’s men will also play Jamaica before their opening World Cup clash with Honduras on the 15th June.

The French, paired with Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador has been tipped to make the knock-out stages of the tournament and with a mix of experience and youth in the squad they could be a surprise package.

Defence has been key for the French of late with four clean sheets in their last five games and they won their last three as a result.

The Ukraine, Holland and Norway have all been accounted for in recent times with the most win coming against Per-Mathias Høgmo’s men.


Paul Pogba, Oliver Giroud (2) and Loic Remy were all on the score-sheet on Tuesday against the Norwegians.

Pogba and Giroud both started the game but they could be on the bench on Sunday with Remy and Newcastle star Mousaa Sissoko hoping for starts.

Remy Cabella and Rio Mavuba also came on the second half and they too will hope to start with Yohan Cabaye and Blaise Matuidi likely to be the second half men.

Back to defenders though, Laurent Koscielny, Mamadou Sakho, Mathieu Debuchy and Patrice Evra has formed a solid wall in front of the Hugo Lloris in recent times and they understanding along with the protection from the likes of Pogba makes the French a solid unit.

Paraguay meanwhile won’t be at the World Cup this summer but they showed that they won’t be giving their opponents an easy ride as they beat world cup participants Cameroon 2-1 on Thursday.

Goals from Oscar Romero and Roque Santa Cruz sealed a first win in five for Victor Genes’ men. The win over the African side was only their second since February 2013, during which time they have lost five and drawn 3.
