A pair of 2014 World Cup contenders will go head-to-head in Paris on Wednesday night as France play host to the Netherlands in a marquee international friendly. Both teams secured World Cup qualification last fall and have now begun preparations for Brazil. This could be a time to see some exciting youngsters get a chance at international level, with the likes of Memphis Depay and Antoine Griezmann set for caps. Griezmann was named in the France squad by coach Didier Deschamps last week, earning a call-up for the first time in his career after displaying excellent form for Spanish side Real Sociedad. The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in all competitions this season, reportedly attracting the eye of Premier League clubs Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in the process.
Although these two squads won’t meet in South America, unless it’s during the knockout stage, each will be a tough test for the other and serve as excellent World Cup preparation.
The main injury news for France is that Franck Ribery will be missing, while Clement Grenier will also sit this one out. Leroy Fer was forced to withdraw from the squad after picking up an injury.
France: Lloris, Evra, Koscielny, Varane, Sagna, Cabaye, Matuidi, Pogba, Payet, Benzema, Valbuena
Netherlands: Cillessen, Janmaat, Indi, Vlaar, Blind, Strootman, Schaars, Sneijder, Depay, Persie, Robben
