Everyone is ready. I'm not going to make any special case, the management of the group remains the same."

18:15 – Without Mbappé, questions about the effectivenessé offensive

With more than one goal every two selections with the Blues, Kylian Mbapp&eac; The achievement counters have been panicking since they arrived in the selection. It is ahead of all the passage times of its predecessors.

If we rely on the different setups made by Didier Deschamps during yesterday's training, Kylian Mbappé should start on the bench this Friday evening against the Netherlands.

We will then move on to à a 4-4-2 with two leading attackers, Olivier Giroud and Marcus Thuram.

Interrogatedé on the presence or not of Kylian Mbapp&eac; face &agrav; his team this Friday evening, the Dutch coach Ronald Koeman kicked in touch. "I don’m concerned with that because I have no influence over it."

The possible absence of the latter could call into question his presence on the field at kick-off.

Kylian Mbappé could well start the match against the Netherlands on the bench this Friday evening. Leipzig. To replace him, Didier Deschamps tested é several implementations Thursday evening during match eve training, thus blurring the lines as to the potential starting eleven.
