Didier Deschamps' men are coming from a slim 1-0 win against Bulgaria, where a goal by Blaise Matuidi secured the three points from the game.

"There was a bit of tiredness and fragility because a lot was at stake", Deschamps said. The stadium will be full and popular fervour surrounds this France team, one that is loved and supported.
