France secured their spot in next summer’s European Championship with a 2-1 win over the Netherlands, meaning head coach Didier Deschamps can now start evaluating the squad he will be taking to Germany. Les Bleus have won all six qualifying matches. conceding just one goal and are one of the favourites to bring home the trophy in June alongside England and with the incredible talent they have at their disposal you can see why.

Scotland’s place at Euro 2024 was confirmed with Spain’s victory over Norway on Monday evening, as they made it to back-to-back European Championship finals for the first time since 1996. Steve Clarke’s side have been impressive in qualifying, winning each of their opening five games before falling to a controversial defeat to Spain last time out and will be more than able to hold their own in Germany.

With this being an international friendly one can expect Didier Deschamps to rotate his squad. The likes of Alphonse Areola, Jean-Clair Todibo, Benjamin Pavard, Eduardo Camavinga and Ousmane Dembélé were unused substitutes in the win over Netherlands last time out while Olivier Giroud and Marcus Thuram came off the bench. Someone hoping to feature and maintain his ridiculous appearance streak is Antoine Griezmann who hasn’t missed a French game since June 2017.

Steve Clarke could also ring in the changes with Billy Gilmour, Stuart Armstrong, Kenny McLean and Ché Adams all hoping to start.
