Missing Players and team news:




The big news from the France camp is the inclusion of Karim Benzema after a five-year absence from the national team, and the veteran has a good chance of featuring this week with Kylian Mbappe and Griezmann likely to be kept in reserve. There is no space in the squad for Tottenham Hotspur’s Tanguy Ndombele, though, while Lille title-winner Mike Maignan is preferred to ex-Fulham loanee Alphonse Areola. With Deschamps unlikely to risk his biggest names before the tournament kicks off, the stage could be set for Maignan, Wissam Ben Yedder and maybe even the uncapped Jules Kounde to impress. Meanwhile, Wales manager Page will want to select an XI capable of going toe-to-toe with the world champions, as Bale, Harry Wilson and Kieffer Moore all eye spots in the final third. Uncapped Cardiff City teenager Rubin Colwill has been called up for the Euros, but Tom Lawrence and 2016 hero Hal Robson-Kanu will not feature at the tournament. Tom Lockyer, meanwhile, is a late addition to the squad following James Lawrence’s withdrawal. Page may opt against risking Ben Davies or Ethan Ampadu for this encounter given their injury problems towards the end of the Premier League season, and a fit-again Ramsey may take the latter’s place in the middle.
