Corrigés par le Brésil, les Bleus vont tenter de rebondir face au Danemark en amical ce dimanche soir à Saint-Etienne. Objectif : chasser les petits doutes naissants et ne pas trop gamberger sur la route de l'Euro 2016. Coup d’envoi du match à 21h à suivre en direct sur francebleu.fr !

Si l'adversaire du soir est moins prestigieux que le Brésil, il peut permettre de se relancer immédiatement. Les Bleus ont touché du doigt certaines de leurs limites jeudi en s'inclinant contre la Seleçao (3-1) et subi un net coup d'arrêt après une belle période d'invincibilité depuis le Mondial 2014.

Mais le calendrier a bien fait les choses et leur offre la possibilité de se rebondir en se frottant au Danemark ce dimanche soir, une nation largement à leur portée. Pour l'occasion, ils étrenneront leur nouveau maillot extérieur dévoilé la semaine dernière.

Coup d'envoi du match à 21h à suivre sur francebleu.fr !

Chasser les doutes

A un peu moins de quinze mois de l'Euro 2016 (10 juin-10 juillet) , compétition pour laquelle elle est qualifiée d'office en tant que pays organisateur, la France ne veut pas douter. Un retour à l'ordinaire donc face à la 28e nation au classement FIFA. De quoi vite se rassurer pour engranger de la confiance dans la bonne campagne de préparation en vue du Championnat d'Europe.

Car Didier Deschamps le sait : un nouveau faux pas aurait des conséquences néfastes, brisant l'élan et la dynamique enclenchés le 19 novembre 2013 lors du barrage retour de la Coupe du monde face à l'Ukraine (3-0). L'enjeu de cet amical est important mine de rien : la France n'a plus perdu deux matches d'affilée depuis juin 2013 (Brésil et Uruguay).

Turn-over à Geoffroy-Guichard

Pas question pour autant pour Deschamps de modifier ses habitudes et c'est à un vaste turn-over que devrait assister le public de Geoffroy-Guichard de Saint-Etienne, "DD" souhaitant à chaque rassemblement offrir du temps de jeu à l'ensemble de son groupe. 

Le "Chaudron", qui n'a plus accueilli de rencontre des Bleus depuis juin 2009 (défaite face au Nigeria 1-0 en amical), doit ainsi se préparer à encourager des seconds couteaux dont quelques-uns ne sont absolument pas assurés d'être de l'aventure à l'Euro.

Varane (encore) capitaine

Seule certitude : Raphël Varane sera capitaine. Deschamps l'a assuré en conférence de presse. C'est la troisième fois en 19 sélections que le défenseur madrilne portera le brasard en Bleu. Après Karim Benzema, Olivier Girou - en grande forme avec Arsenal - devrait être titularisé à la pointe de l'attaque. Le Gunner pourrait profiter de l'entente entre les deux Lyonnais Alexandre Lacazette (23 ans, 5 sélections) et Nabil Fekir (21 ans, 1 sélection), eux aussi pressentis pour débuter.

Reste à savoir comment le public stéphanois, ennemi juré des Lyonnais, accueillera le duo de l'OL. Pour le consoler, il devrait y avoir sur la pelouse une belle ossature "verte" parmi les joueurs susceptibles de débuter : Ruffier et les anciens de l'ASSE Trémoulinas, Guilavogui et Payet . Après le naufrage face au Brésil, la défense risque d'être remaniée à l'exception de Varane. Et elle est dans l'obligation de se racheter pour ne pas sombrer dans la sinistrose. A l'image de toute l'équipe de France.

Les compos probables

France : Ruffier - Jallet, Varane (cap.), Koscielny, Trémoulinas -  Schneiderlin, Kondogbia - Lacazette, Payet, Fekir (ou Griezmann) - Giroud

Danemark : Schmeichel - Jacobsen, Hansen, Kjaer, Boilesen (ou S. Poulsen) - Wass, . Kvist, Eriksen (cap.) - Vibe, Bendtner, Krohn-Deli
