Team News
Tunisia boss Kadri should be counting on a fully-fit squad for the showdown with France, with second-choice goalkeeper Bechir Ben Said back on the bench on Saturday after recovering from discomfort.

Right-back Mohamed Drager lasted just 45 minutes of the defeat to Australia before being hauled off by his manager, which could now open the door for Wajdi Kechrida or Ferjani Sassi to start, but Kadri should keep the changes to a minimum either way.

Tunisia's second-highest goalscorer of all time, Wahbi Khazri, has only made one substitute appearance at the World Cup so far, but the 24-goal Montpellier HSC man will surely come into consideration for a place this week.
Tunisia possible starting lineup:
Dahmen; Bronn, Talbi, Meriah; Kechrida, Skhiri, Laidouni, Abdi; Msakni, Sliti; Khazri

As for France, Deschamps' second-choice goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is a slight doubt due to a back issue, but a multitude of changes can be expected as the Bleus boss spares his first-choice crop for the knockout rounds.

Theo Hernandez is now the only recognised left-back in the squad following brother Lucas Hernandez's devastating cruciate ligament injury, and Deschamps is reportedly prepared to test out Eduardo Camavinga in a left-back role to give the AC Milan defender a bit of respite.

Mbappe has supposedly decided that he does not want to be rested, but alterations elsewhere could see William Saliba, Matteo Guendouzi, Kingsley Coman and Youssouf Fofana all considered for places.
France possible starting lineup:
Mandanda; Pavard, Konate, Varane, Camavinga; Guendouzi, Fofana; Coman, Griezmann, Mbappe; Thuram
Prediction: Tunisia 0-1 France
