Netherlands vs France: Blind and Pogba start, Martial and Memphis benched

by Sam Peoples

Daley Blind and Paul Pogba are starting tonight for Netherlands and France respectively in their massive 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Blind will play at left-back which is a position he’s more than used to playing for Netherlands while Pogba is being used in a midfield two alongside Blaise Matuidi.

Unfortunately, there is no room for either Anthony Martial or Memphis Depay in either of the teams and they are both on the bench.

This is a big game and I’m looking forward to seeing how Blind and Pogba get on. Hopefully we’ll see Memphis and Martial get some minutes as well because they are both in need of more game time, especially ahead of Liverpool away.
