France kick off their World Cup campaign against Australia on June 16th, before facing Peru and Denmark in their remaining Group C fixtures. All of those players are capable of making a telling impact and France's substitutes could end up being just as crucial as the starting XI.

Giroud recently scored his 31st global goal, equalling the tally in a France shirt of Zinedine Zidane, but Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele has also staked his claim for a starting berth in attack with his form in the pre-tournament friendly matches.

With Mbappe and Dembele sitting slightly deeper than in a 4-3-3, they have the speed to transition quickly into a more advanced position on the break.

"He's had this pressure around him and his performances for a long time".

Dropping Pogba, therefore, gives Olivier Giroud a chance to come into the side. Pogba was at less than his best in a 3-1 friendly win over Italy and has recently been whistled by some portions of the home crowd, with former France global Frank Leboeuf saying recently he doesn't think the 25-year-old will start in Russian Federation.

The share purchases could be a signal to employees and Wall Street that he's still optimistic about the future of Tesla . He said most Tesla employees working at Home Depot will be offered a chance to move to Tesla retail locations.

With France's squad being packed full of midfield talent, Pogba will not be gifted a spot in the side and he will instead have to fight hard to make sure he stays ahead in the pecking order over the likes of Corentin Tolisso and Steven N'Zonzi.

Kante is certainly capable of this, but he'll have a lot of defensive slack on his plate in this system.

"People expect him to be decisive every single game but he is a human being, he has his own qualities", Sagna told Omnisport at the launch of social media ranking tool Primetag.

The 1998 World Cup victor is looking for more of that in Russian Federation this summer, telling Paddy Power: "We all know Pogba has great potential but I want to see the same Pogba I saw against Manchester City when United won 3-2".

N'Golo Kante will also play in the French midfield, but the other spot is up for grabs between Blaise Matuidi of Juventus and Bayern Munich's Corentin Tolisso.
