France v Honduras
Estadio Beira-Rio, Porto Alegre
Kick-off: 20.00 BST
 
Team News Franck Ribery’s absence is a huge blow to France.
Olivier Giroud has impressed in the build-up but Didier Deschamps could decide to leave the Arsenal striker on the bench.
Los Catrachos will retain an air of mystery up until the last minute, having so far refused to disclose whether they are going for a 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 approach.
Forward Carlos Costly resumed training after a scare on Thursday and it is more likely he will opt for the first setup, with New England’s Jerry Bengtson by his side.
Defender Bryan Beckeles should also retain a starting position, even if his dismissal against the English last week almost jeopardised the team’s chances.
Match Notes
It is remarkable to consider that France has stuttered in the last three World Cup finals, a fact that will not go unnoticed by Honduras.
Their brutal approach as shown against England could easily upset Deschamps's players, and with Ribery missing, anythging could happen
Stat of the game: France have only won one of their last nine games in the World Cup group stages, 2-0 against Togo in 2006
 
France (Possible,4-3-2-1): Lloris; Sagna, Koscielny, Sakho, Evra; Pogba, Cabaye, Matuidi; Valbuena, Griezmann; Benzema.
 
Honduras (Possible, 4-4-2): Valladares; Beckeles, Bernandez, Figueroa, Izaguirre; Najar, Garrido, Palacios, Espinoza; Bengtson, Costly
