Deschamps names Moussa Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye as he rests star players

5 years ago

Didier Deschamps has rested a number of star players and called up both Moussa Sissoko and Yohan Cabaye for the game against Switzerland.

France have already qualified for the knockout stages but a win for Switzerland would see the hosts finish second in the group and possibly face Germany in that knockout stage.

Neither Cabaye or Sissoko have been selected for over a year, with 13 preparation matches going by without either included by Deschamps.

Payet is rested, plus Kante and Giroud, the latter two both on yellow cards.

Pogba and Griezmann are recalled, whilst there are also places for Coman and Gignac in a much changed line-up.

Kick-off is at 8pm and interesting to see what Deschamps will do for the following match if Moussa Sissoko or any of the other changes put in starring performances.

France starting 11 v Switzerland:

Lloris; Jallet, Rami, Koscielny, Evra; Cabaye, Sissoko, Pogba; Griezmann, Gignac, Coman
