France’s upcoming games
France are ready to get their next set of games underway on Friday the 11th of October.
The current World Cup holders head into their next clash level on points with Turkey atop of Group H.
Iceland are then in 3rd spot, three points behind France and Turkey.
It is Iceland who France will face off against on Friday, before going head-to-head with Turkey on Monday, in what could be a huge game for deciding who claims top spot in Group H.
Didier Deschamps would announce his squad for the two aforementioned games on October 3rd.

Kylian Mbappe was named as one of the forwards in said squad.
Mbappe has featured just four times in Ligue 1 for PSG so far this campaign, with the forward having picked up an injury back in August vs Toulouse.
Mbappe would return for PSG vs Bordeaux on the 28th of September, featuring for 30 minutes.
And he then managed 29 minutes of Champions League action on October 1st vs Galatasaray.
The Frenchman was then completely omitted from PSG’s latest matchday squad that claimed an emphatic 4-0 victory over Angers.
But, despite his limited game-time in recent weeks, Didier Deschamps still called up the young star.
However, Mbappe doesn’t look to be quite fully fit yet, as France would announce on Tuesday evening that Mbappe will not participate in the country’s next two matches, and has been replaced in their squad by Alassane Pléa:
After having spoken with the player, who was following a protocol of recovery since Monday, and Franck Le Gall, the doctor of the Team of France, Didier Deschamps decided to put the player at the disposal of his club, the Paris SG . Kylian Mbappé will leave Clairefontaine Wednesday morning.
To replace him, the national coach decided to appeal to Alassane Pléa. The striker Borussia Mönchengladbach, Germany, is expected in the day Wednesday in Clairefontaine.
