Tomorrow Predicted France line up vs Uruguay at
World Cup – Key man suspended
FRANCE will have to shuffle their squad for their World Cup quarter-final against Uruguay due to Blaise Matuidi’s suspension.
France will be without Blaise Matuidi for their World Cup quarter-final clash against Uruguay after the Juventus ace accumulated too many yellow cards in the tournament.
The 31-year-old will serve a one-match suspension having picked up two cautions during France’s four games so far.
Ousmane Dembele is most likely to replace Matuidi, although the Barcelona winger will struggle to mirror his intense pressing style.
Manager Didier Deschamps is unlikely to tinker with the rest of the team which saw off Argentina 4-3, meaning Samuel Umtiti will continue at centre-back having recovered from injury.
Djibril Sidibe is still sidelined but the French have no other injury issues.
Take a look through the gallery above to see how France could line up for their World Cup quarter-final against Uruguay.

4-2-3-1 for Uruguay quarter-final
FRANCE TEAM NEWS: France play Uruguay on Friday in the World Cup quarter-finals, but who will start?
Cavani is Uruguay’s leading scorer at the tournament with three goals and his absence would be a huge blow for Tabárez, not least because of his ability to hold up the ball, tie up central defenders and create space for his striker partner Luis Suárez.
However, Stuani enjoyed an excellent season with Primera División new boys Girona, firing the Catalan side to safety and to within a few points of an unlikely berth in Europe next season with 19 goals in 30 appearances.
