Playing in the last 16 of Euro 2016 against Republic of Ireland, home nation, France is expecting a much more exciting encounter compared to the matches they were playing during group stage.
That mind set was shouted by Les Blues’ head coach, Didier Deschamps as the also urged his players to be more solid as in knock out stages they should try to make lesser mistakes.
Moreover, despite being set as favorite as the home nation, Deschamps warned his team that Ireland are a team that have good players, who know how to play.
Not only that, with such strong spirited display, the tactician believes their battle against Martin O’Neill’s side will be a very tricky encounter.
Probable France line up against Republic of Ireland:
Lloris(gk); Sagna, Rami, Koscielny, Evra(def); Pogba, Kante, Matuidi(mid); Griezmann, Giroud, Payet(att)
