France Team News:
Eve Perisset impressed when she replaced Amel Majri at left-back against South Korea and may be named in the starting 11.
Elsewhere, there are little reasons for a manager after his team win 4-0 and we could see Corinne Diacre lining up the same 11 which she named for the opening world cup game.
Probable XI: Sarah Bouhaddi (GK), Wendie Renard, Marion Torrent, Griedge Mbock Bathy, Wendie Renard, Amel Majri, Amandine Henry, Élise Bussaglia, Delphine Cascarino, Eugénie Le Sommer, Kadidiatou Diani, Gaëtane Thiney

Norway have a healthy squad to choose from. Though, head coach Martin Sjögren could make changes against the host nation. One way to go will be an extra player in the midfield, to not give Frace the kind of space Nigeria failed to take advantage of in the first game.
But it would be hard to leave any player out as Caroline Graham Hansen impressed on the flank, while Guro Reiten grabbed the goal. But the game plan will certainly be different and we could see Norway deviating from their 4-4-2 formation to 4-5-1 with Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland dropping in behind Isabell Herlovsen.
Probable XI: Ingrid Hjelmseth (GK), Ingrid Moe Wold, Maren Mjelde, Maria Thorisdóttir, Kristine Minde, Vilde Bøe Risa, Ingrid Syrstad Engen, Caroline Graham Hansen, Guro Reiten, Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland, Isabell Herlovsen
