France Ready to Battle Physical Iceland

Host nation, France are determined to book a semifinal ticket fo Euro 2016 by eliminating one of the tournament’s surprises, Iceland, this weekend.

Les Blues’ head coach, Didier Deschamps, acknowledge that his side can not underestimate their opponent, notably because Our Boys do have strong physical play that can hurt Paul Pogba and co.

However, Deschamps added that his team have already set up a plan to handle Iceland’s secret weapon, though he also urged his players to be more aggressive on the pitch.

Moreover, the tactician also hope that this time around, France can start well immediately as it’s much better instead of having to come back into the tie like what they previously experienced in the tournament.

Probable France line up against Iceland:

Lloris(gk); Sagna, Koscielny, Umtiti, Evra(def); Pogba, Cabaye, Matuidi(mid); Griezmann, Giroud, Payet(att)
