France vs South Africa Preview

It has been 12 years since the two side met; Bafana Bafana kicked France out of the 2010 FIFA World Cup then. Fast forward to now, France are the reigning Champions of the World. Didier Deschamps has picked a full strength squad for the two friendlies albeit the injury to Karim Benzema. Deschamps declared in the press conference that Kante will return after missing the friendly with the “Les Elephants”.

Deschamps was also vocal about how important he considered these games against the African sides after critics claimed that the 2 games hold no value for France. He said, “Some of you will say that these matches have no value but it is better to win them otherwise they will increase in value. Do not trivialize an international gathering. The pleasure of meeting up is there because the players have chained matches with disappointments and moments of happiness.”
