Samuel Umtiti in pole to face Iceland

Didier Deschamps has a number of pertinent selection questions to face in the coming days ahead of France’s Quarter Final clash against Iceland on Sunday.

Adil Rami and N’Golo Kanté are suspended, and Les Bleus seem likely to go to a 4-2-3-1/4-2-4 formation to face the huge, emerging underdogs in this tournament.

Samuel Umtiti currently is out in front of Eliaquim Mangala to play alongside Laurent Koscielny at the back on Sunday, with Koscielny going to the right-hand side and Umtiti slotting in on the left.

After one day’s training yesterday, the team seems to be shaping up as follows for Sunday:

Lloris – Sagna, Koscielny, Umtiti, Evra – Matuidi, Pogba – Payet, Griezmann, Coman – Giroud.
