France vs. Holland: 2018 World Cup Qualifier – Match Preview

France entertain Holland in a vital World Cup qualifier for both nations.

France are second in the group having been surprisingly beaten by Sweden in the last set of fixtures.

A Hugo Lloris error in the last minute cost them dearly, however they are still favourites to qualify.

Holland will need a result in France on Thursday evening, having lost two of their first six matches.

Last time out they were too strong for Luxembourg in Dick Advocaat’s first match in charge.

Team news
Layvin Kurzawa is set to start from left-back with Benjamin Mendy absent having just returned to fitness.

Nabil Fekir is likely to be deployed from wide right with Dmitri Payet not called up in the latest squad.

Marco van Ginkel could start in central midfield having made a good start to the league season.

Vincent Janssen is likely to lead the line, despite domestic struggles with Tottenham.

Expected starting XI’s
France (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Sidibe, Umtiti, Koscielny, Kurzawa; Kante, Pogba; Fekir, Griezmann, Lemar; Giroud
Holland (4-3-3): Cillessen; Veltman, Hoedt, De Vrij, Blind; Van Ginkel, Strootman, Wijanldum; Robben, Janssen, Memphis
