France lineup v Germany: Brice Samba gets nod ahead of Mike Maignan

As expected, Brice Samba starts ahead of Mike Maignan in goal as France face Germany in a friendly in Lyon. The latter has been recovering from an injury that he sustained while playing for AC Milan last weekend and despite returning to first-team training towards the end of the week, Didier Deschamps has not taken any risks. 

There are no surprises in the team. Warren Zaïre-Emery earns his second cap for Les Bleus after making a brief debut against Gibraltar last November, whilst up front, Marcu Thuram leads the line. The Inter Milan striker has been favoured over AC Milan’s Olivier Giroud and Paris Saint-Germain’s Randal Kolo Muani. Kylian Mbappé captains the side in what is France’s penultimate match before this summer’s Euros in Germany.
