France to choose Antoine Griezmann over Olivier Giroud for Germany game

France will play Antoine Griezmann instead of Olivier Giroud this afternoon, we are told and Valbuena and Griezmann’s width will be key. Germany’s peculiar setup of 4 central defenders, with two playing in full back positions cost them against Ghana and France must use their pace and trickery to do the same. 

Mamadou Sakho takes Laurent Koscielny’s place as he returns from injury. 

France XI vs Germany: Lloris- Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra- Pogba, Cabaye, Matuidi- Valbuena, Griezmann, Benzema.
