France vs Italy
ITA vs FRA Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
France got their World Cup preparations underway in the best possible way as the 1998 World Champions beat Ireland 2-0 in their first warm-up game. Now they host Italy in Nice in their next game which provides another chance for Didier Deschamps to find his best combination ahead of the showpiece event.
The four times champions may have failed to qualify for the World Cup, but that was not primarily due to their performance throughout the qualifying campaign. In fact, the Azzurri dropped just 7 points in the 10 qualifying games and finished 2nd behind a Spanish team which looked in imperious form during the campaign. So this match-up could be the kind of challenge that Didier Deschamps and his men may be in need to test all their strength.
