Les Bleus will launch the defence of their World Cup title in Qatar later this year.
Didier Deschamps guided his nation to glory in Russia in 2018; 20 years after lifting the trophy as captain on home soil.
The French will be confident of successfully defending their crown, having recently added the Nations League to their cabinet.
They are on a five-match winning streak and are unbeaten over 90 minutes in 18.
Mind, their opponents are in decent form, having lost just once in 16 games in regulation time.
After finishing second to Mohamed Salah’s Egypt in their qualifying group, the Elephants’ hopes of reaching Qatar are over.
Nevertheless, victory over the reigning World champions would provide Patrice Beaumelle’s side with a timely boost in their quest to return to the finals in four years’ time.
