France take on Uruguay in a World Cup quarter-final clash that is set to get underway at 16h00 at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium today.
Uruguay’s in-form forward Edinson Cavani is expected to miss this match with the calf injury he suffered in their last 16 win over Portugal last Saturday.
Former Middlesbrough forward Cristhian Stuani is expected to be drafted in to play alongside Luis Suarez upfront.
France coach Didier Deschamps must decide who replaces the suspended Blaise Matuidi in midfield.
Central midfielder Corentin Tolisso who plies his trade at German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich appears to be the front runner, having started their opening match against Australia in the group stages of the tournament in Russia.
