France Vs Spain Team News
Although Ferran Torres was pulled off with an injury in the first half versus 10-man Italy, he is expected to be fit for the final on Sunday.
Even the Spaniard’s coach Luis Enrique expressed concern: “I’m not sure how Ferran will be.” He had a knock in the first half and another in the second half so we decided to take no risks.”
After missing France’s 2-0 win over Finland last month, Kylian Mbappe returned to the lineup in that epic match with Belgium. France on the other hand didn’t fell victim to any on-field injuries.
Siblings Lucas and Theo Hernandez join forces for Les Blues since Herve Revelli and Patrick in 1974. Everton’s left-back Lucas Digne succumbed to muscle injury and was withdrawn from the team. According to a statement from the French Football Federation, “Lucas Digne experienced some minor muscle soreness during Tuesday’s training session. The medical staff of Les Bleus took care of him.”
