So, with this blockbusting friendly nearly here, we’ve picked out our top tips and odds.
Les Bleus to banish USA
France came tantalisingly close to winning Euro 2016 on home soil, making it all the way to the final.
With the young squad two years older and blessed with perhaps the most gifted selection of talent in the competition, Les Bleus look primed for success.
The United States failed to make it to the 2018 World Cup and shouldn’t prove too stiff a test for Paul Pogba and co.
France have netted two or more in each of their last 10 WC qualification games, so expect this to continue on Saturday.
They are 7/2 with betfair to triumph over the US by three goals.
Griezmann to grab goals galore
The 27-year-old Atletico Madrid star finished Euro 2016 as top-scorer and will be keen to get his shooting boots set for Russia.
Scoring in his previous friendly outing against Italy, back Antoine Griezmann to score first at 3/1 with betway.
Linked with a move to Barcelona this summer, the Frenchman’s stock could rise even further with a top showing in Russia.
