France v Netherlands: Projected Lineups Include Valbuena and Strootman
France v Netherlands: Projected Lineups Include Valbuena and Strootman

In the last three meetings between the two sides, the Netherlands have had the edge over France with two victories and a draw. However, France will hope that the friendly confines of their national stadium will aid their quest for victory.

Franck Ribery and Clement Grenier are the two outstanding injury concerns for the French but Les Blues are certain to name a strong first team in hopes of pulling one over on their visitors.

The Oranje lost Leroy Fer last minute due to injury but at the moment have no other pressing injury concerns and the trifecta of Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Robin Van Persie will have the weight of their national team on their shoulders.

Arsenal target Antoine Griezmann could be in line for his first international appearance as he has been greatly impressive this season with Real Sociedad in the Spanish La Liga as the league's third leading scorer.

Memphis Depay is the current media and news standout that has been called up by his home nation with three goals and two assists with PSV Eindhoven in his last three matches.

France XI: Lloris: Sagna, Varane, Koscielny, Evra; Pogba, Matuidi, Cabaye; Valbuena, Benzema, Payet.

Netherlands XI: Cillessen: Janmaat, Indi, Vlaar, Blind; Strootman, Schaars, Sneijder; Robben, Persie, Depay.
