France vs Uruguay [World Cup 2018] the latest
France will on Friday afternoon clash with Uruguay in the 2018 World Cup quarter-final tie at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Russia.
France has met Uruguay three times at the World Cup. Two of those were draws (2010 and 2002), while France won the other encounter in 1966.
The Les Blues head into the game after beating Argentina 4-3 in the round of 16 last week Saturday.
France’s head coach, Didier Deschamps has no new injuries worries in his squad ahead of this clash.
Midfielder, Blaise Matuidi, will definitely miss the game after picking up his second yellow card against Argentina.
France have made it to the final of a World Cup twice, winning it once on home turf in 1998. They lost to Germany in the quarter-finals in the 2014 edition in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Uruguay head into the game after beating Portugal 2-1 in the round of 16 last weekends.
The La Celeste could be without their star strikers, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez for their World Cup quarter-final against France.
Cavani scored twice during the last 16 win over Portugal, but was forced off the field shortly after his second with a hamstring problem, while Suarez picked a knock in training.
Uruguay boss, Oscar Tabarez may opt to field an extra midfielder as opposed to a direct replacement for Cavani.
Tabarez is expected not to change his back four, meaning Diego Laxalt and Martin Caceres will start in the full-back positions.
Uruguay’s potential starting XI:
Muslera, Caceres, Gimenez, Godin, Laxalt, Nandez, Torreira, Vecino, Bentancur, Stuani, Suarez
France’s potential starting XI:
Lloris, Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Lucas, Kante, Pogba, Mbappe, Griezmann, Tolisso, Giroud
The kick off time for the match is 3pm.
