Engaged in group B of the qualifiers for Euro 2021, Portugal finished in 2nd place in the standings, ahead of Ukraine. Despite this slight underperformance, the Lusitanian selection is directly qualified for the next European Championship. Winners of the 1st Nations League, Cristiano Ronaldo’s partners have started this new edition very well. Leaders in the standings tied on points with France, they won their first 2 matches against Croatia (4-1) and Sweden (0-2) in September. In October, Portugal took a very good point in France (0-0) before winning very easily against Sweden (3-0). At the last meeting, the team also drew, at home, against Spain in a friendly (0-0).

Despite missteps against Turkey (away defeat and draw at home), the France team quietly qualified for Euro 2021 by winning the head of group H in the qualifiers in November 2020. Subsequently, after 10 months without an international meeting because of the health crisis, the Blues very started this 2nd edition of the League of Nations last September. Present in Group 3 of League A, they won, after a tasteless match, in Sweden (0-1) before taking the measure of Croatia on the same score as in the final of the 2018 World Cup. (4-2). Last October, Didier Deschamps’ men first gave a friendly beating to a decimated selection of Ukraine (7-1), which surprised despite being absent a few days later (short defeat 1-2 against Germany and 1-0 victory over Spain). Three days later, in the Nations League, they preserved, at home, the point of a draw against Portugal after an uncontrolled match (0-0) before winning in Croatia on the last day (1- 2). 2nd in the pool tied on points with Portugal, the France team travels to Portugal in a crucial meeting for 1st place in the pool, synonymous with Final 4.

The workforce for Portugal vs France

For Portugal, the captain of the defence Pepe is the big package of this gathering. Otherwise, midfielder Andre Gomes (Everton) and forwards Guedes (Valencia) and Andre Gomes (Frankfurt) were not called up. The selection is obviously led by Cristiano Ronaldo who, despite his 35 years, continues to score goals in club and selection. He also exceeded 100 goals with the selection last September (101 goals in 167 sel). Portugal has a very good generation in which we find defenders Semedo (Wolverhampton, ex Barça), Ruben Dias (Manchester City) and Guerreiro (Dortmund), midfielders Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United) and Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) and forwards Diogo Jota (Liverpool) and Joao Felix (Atletico Madrid).

The France team presents itself with a relatively traditional workforce for this gathering. However, present last October, the defender Upamecano (Leipzig) paid for his difficulties displayed during his first selections and was not called. Injured, the 2 playmakers trained in Lyon Fekir and Aouar are also absent. Otherwise, the main surprise comes from the summons of Marcus Thuram, excellent with Monchengladbach. Despite his injury, Mbappé is present but he should not play this first match. Finally, the prodigy Camavinga is forfeited for this gathering. Several very important elements are currently showing too little with their respective clubs. This is the case of Varane, Kanté, Pogba, Griezmann or Giroud.
