Goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, Will Captain France Against England

Despite his blunder against Sweden last week, France and Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will still captain France against England in Tuesday's Stade de France friendly. France are sticking with Lloris, who was to blame for the 2-1 defeat in Stockholm, his poor clearance having given Ola Toivonen the chance to score a brilliant last-minute winner.
France manager Didier Deschamps said on the eve of the match against England “He will play, definitely. Lloris will captain. Obviously, I've discussed things with him. If he'd seen things differently, I might have changed my decision, but we both thought it was the best thing for him to do. It was clear. We want him to go back on the pitch.”

Widespread changes are expected elsewhere in Deschamps' starting XI, with Monaco's rapidly rising star Kylian Mbappe in contention for just a second international start. Deschamps guided France to the European Championship final last year but results since then have been inconsistent, and he has warned his players that places are now up for grabs
