They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 5 matches for this competition.

They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 9 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 10 of them.

France heads to this game with a 2-1 home win to the Netherlands in the League of Nations match: the team's goals were scored by Mbappé and Giroud. The Gallic team has a high quality squad in all sectors. Thus, unlike the opponents of this friendly match, it is expected that the French will choose to play in a 4-2-3-1, favoring a faster style of playing, in constant offensive transitions. Chelsea striker Giroud will be the most offensive reference to offer his team the chance to create a lot of danger through aerial game. For this game the manager can not count on Nabil Fekir because of injury.
