FRA vs WAL Dream11: France will be rotated but Didier Deschamps is likely to give Karim Benzema his first French cap since 2015 as the Griezmann-Benzema-Mbappe attacking trident could be set for its first run out together. They come up against a Wales side that have had a smooth transition into their international bubble at the end of their domestic campaign and will be looking to build on their impressive five matches so far under the tutelage of Rob Page. France will inevitably remain favourites but Wales will be confident of posing problems.
