Antoine Griezmann will probably start in support of Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappé, this Wednesday (9:05 pm) for the preparation match of the France team against Wales, for the Euro.
There was little doubt on this point: Antoine Griezmann, Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappé should be associated on Wednesday evening (9:05 p.m.), for the preparation match of the France team against Wales. But the question was about the system. As tested during Sunday training, Didier Deschamps should line up with a 4-4-2 diamond.
Even if the attackers should be very mobile, with a lot of permutations, the number 10 position will a priori go to Antoine Griezmann. An expected choice, given the skills of the FC Barcelona striker for defensive efforts.
A possible schema change during the match
A change of tactical pattern will not be excluded during the meeting. This is in any case what Didier Deschamps said at a press conference on the eve of this meeting scheduled in Nice: “There is an offensive animation, there will be one at the start of the match, maybe -being others during the match “.
“I only have two friendlies, six changes, there will be playing time allotted, also said the coach. In my mind, the priority is to prepare the team for June 15 (date of entry into contention against Germany, editor’s note). I will have a choice of departure, it does not say that it is this one for June 15th “.
The probable starting XI: Lloris – Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez – Tolisso – Pogba, Rabiot – Griezmann – Mbappé, Benzema.
