France vs Netherlands: Confirmed teams – Martial and Memphis on the bench

by Sam Peoples

France XI: Mandanda, Jallet, Evra, Varane, Koscielny, Diarra, Matuidi, Pogba, Payet, Griezmann, Giroud

Netherlands XI: Cillessen, Veltman, Willems, Blind, Bruma, Van Dijk, Clasie, Sneijder, Klaassen, De Jong, Promes

Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial are both starting on the bench for France’s friendly international with the Netherlands while Daley Blind starts.

For Memphis it is a position he has probably unfortunately got used to having been there so much this season for Manchester United. As for Martial, France’s squad is littered with quality attacking players and it is a chance for Didier Deschamps to see them in action.

I’d much rather see Blind sitting on the bench and getting much some much needed rest but his father Danny, manager of the Netherlands, sees it differently.

We’ll bring you some reports later on how the players get on.
