The French have to complain about three failures before the round of 16 with Ousmane Dembélé (knee injury), Lucas Digne (thigh problems) and Marcus Thuram (adductor problems). There is also a question mark behind Lucas Hernandez, who is struggling with knee problems.
National coach Vladimir Petkovic can probably draw on the full in terms of personnel.
