France vs Bolivia Match Preview
France meet Bolivia for the first time to gain some match practice ahead of what are two important fixtures in the quest to secure their place at next year’s European Championship.
The World Cup winners did not claim a play-off berth from last autumn’s UEFA Nations League and therefore need to ensure they finish in the top two of a group that also comprises Albania, Iceland, Moldova and their next two opponents Turkey and Andorra.
Although Les Bleus, who took maximum points from their first two games, should reach Euro 2020 without too many problems, it is not the sort of pool in which they can afford to be complacent as four of the teams contested the 2016 tournament.
Manager Didier Deschamps will be hoping captain Hugo Lloris and his Tottenham team-mate Moussa Sissoko come through the Champions League Final unscathed, while among four uncapped call-ups are defenders Clement Lenglet (Barcelona) and Leo Dubois (Lyon).
Bolivia, meanwhile, have travelled to Europe before contesting the Copa America in Brazil, where they will open their campaign against the hosts and also face Peru and Venezuela during the group stage.
Manchester United midfielder and World Cup Final goalscorer Paul Pogba has a Bolivian connection as his partner, Maria Salaues, is from the South American country.
Although Bolivia have not lost any of their last eight games by more than one goal, the quality of opposition has been nowhere near France’s level and this should end in a decisive victory for the world champions.
