Republic of Ireland vs France XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for Euro 2024 qualifier


Full of confidence after they demolished the Netherlands on Friday, the France Team will look to build a winning streak when they travel to face the Republic of Ireland on Monday.

Les Bleus, fresh off losing in the World Cup 2022  final, dismantled the Dutch to the tune of four unanswered goals, with new captain Kylian Mbappe kicking off his reign with two strikes of his own.

Ireland’s preparations for this game came earlier in the international break with a 3-2 friendly victory over Latvia, with exciting young striker Evan Ferguson bagging his first goal for his country.

Ireland team news

Right-back Seamus Coleman has been out with an injury but is thought to be in with a shout of returning for this one, albeit probably from the bench.

Republic of Ireland predicted lineup (3-5-2):

 Bazunu; Egan, Collins, O’Shea; Doherty, Cullen, Molumby, Knight, O’Dowda; Ferguson, Obafemi

France team news

There are no fitness concerns for Didier Deschamps, who lost both William Saliba and Wesley Fofana to injuries before the break began.

Expect Les Bleus to go strong once again, but there should be plenty of minutes for fringe players later on.

France predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): 

Maignan; Pavard, Konate, Upamecano, Theo; Tchouameni, Camavinga; Coman, Griezmann, Mbappe; Kolo Muani
