Referee  Anthony Taylor (England)
Goal Scorer:

No injury concerns arose for the Netherlands during their hard-fought win over Poland, and as Brian Brobbey - absent from that victory with a hamstring problem - is now training with the team again, Koeman should have every man available to him.

The only minor quandary for the Oranje boss might come in midfield, as Joey Veerman's yellow card on Sunday means that he will incur a one-game ban if he is booked here as well, but Koeman should not take such hypotheticals into account for a match of this magnitude.

The Netherlands coach has not completely closed the door on Weghorst's chances of starting after his late heroics over the weekend, but Depay - five shy of equalling Robin van Persie's record 50 goals for the men's team - should continue to hold off his colleague for the time being.

Speaking of attacking predicaments, Bleus fans have been anxiously awaiting news on Mbappe, who was left sporting a bloody nose and shirt after the Danso incident, but the ex-Paris Saint-Germain attacker could still feature in the latter stages of the tournament with a protective mask.
Netherlands possible starting lineup:
Verbruggen; Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Ake; Schouten, Veerman; Simons, Reijnders, Gakpo; Depay

However, French media have reported that Mbappe will have to sit out Friday's crunch clash, and Deschamps is expected to call upon record goalscorer Olivier Giroud to fill the void; the 37-year-old has been dealing with some groin pain, but nothing that should impact his availability.

Eduardo Camavinga (ankle) and his Real Madrid teammate Aurelien Tchouameni (foot) are also expected to be given the green light to play, but neither should displace N'Golo Kante, who rolled back the years against Austria with an industrious midfield performance.
France possible starting lineup:
Maignan; Kounde, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernandez; Kante, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Thuram; Giroud
Prediction: Netherlands 0-0 France
