France look they will be fine without another striker, both Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe have been emphatic in front of goal.

At this stage they will be hoping for a centre-back. Their squad has suffered greatly from a virus and with their defenders getting the brunt of the illness.

Dayot Upamecano, Raphael Varane and Ibrahima Konate are all struggling to overcome the sickness.
