Cinq jours après sa balade contre la Norvège (4-0), l'équipe de France, toujours privée de Franck Ribéry, remet le couvert dimanche face au Paraguay pour son deuxième match de préparation à la Coupe du monde au Brésil pour entretenir sa bonne dynamique. Coup d'envoi du match à 21h à Nice à vivre sur francebleu.fr !

Le départ des Bleus pour le Brésil, le 9 juin, approche à grands pas. Il reste donc peu de temps pour régler les détails et parfaire les automatismes. La France en aura notamment l'occasion ce soir à l'Allianz Riviera de Nice pour son deuxième match de préparation en vue du Mondial.

Engranger de la confiance

Didier Deschamps espère que la spirale vertueuse, enclenchée avec le barrage retour contre l'Ukraine (3-0, le 19 novembre) et confirmée par de probants succès contre les Pays-Bas (2-0, le 5 mars) et la Norvège (4-0), restera en l'état.Il ne s'agit pas d'être prêt trop tôt ou de se tromper d'objectif mais d'entretenir le climat de confiance qui accompagne les Bleus depuis le début du stage, le 19 mai. Il serait malvenu que cette sérénité qui se dégage du groupe soit subitement balayée par des Paraguayens non-qualifiés pour le Mondial.

Ribéry, Benzema et Varane absents

Une ombre plane toutefois au tableau : celle de Franck Ribéry . La star du Bayern Munich souffre toujours du dos et a passé les 7 derniers jours à travailler à part. Il est même allé passer des examens dans un hôpital parisien, samedi avant le décollage pour Nice, et manquera de nouveau à l'appel ce soir après avoir déjà été dispensé de la petite mise en jambes face aux Norvégiens. Faut-il s'inquiéter pour Ribéry ? Le clan français ne veut surtout pas dramatiser son cas. Mais le temps presse et le premier rendez-vous brésilien des Bleus, le 15 juin contre le Honduras, approche.Pour les deux champions d'Europe du Real Madrid Karim Benzema (adducteur gauche) et Raphaël Varane (jambe droite), également ménagés depuis leur arrivée à Clairefontaine mercredi, l'amical face au Paraguay arrive aussi un peu trop rapidement. Ils ne seront donc pas alignés sur la feuille de match mais il n'y a pas lieu de nourrir de craintes particulières pour le Mondial et ils retrouveront probablement le maillot bleu lors du dernier match de préparation contre la Jamaïque la semaine prochaine à Lille.En l'absence de Ribéry, Benzema et Varane, l'équipe de départ sera très proche de celle qui a facilement dominé la Norvège. Les seules modifications devraient concerner le poste de gardien, avec le retour du capitaine Hugo Lloris après l'intermède assuré par Stéphane Ruffier , et peut-être celui de latéral droit où Bacary Sagna pourrait suppléer Mathieu Debuchy.

Les équipes probables

France : Lloris - Sagna, Koscielny, Sakho, Evra - Cabaye, Pogba, Matuidi - Valbuena, Giroud, GriezmannParaguay : Silva - Cardozo, Ortiz, Alonso - Coronel, Cáceres, Mendieta, Oviedo, Samudio - Santa Cruz, Romero****

Seulement trois "France-Paraguay"

Les deux pays se sont rencontrés trois fois seulement, mais deux fois en Coupe du monde. La première fois en Suède lors de la Coupe du monde1958 pour leur entrée en lice, qui avait notamment vu Just Fontaine marquer les trois premiers de ses 13 buts dans le tournoi qui en font toujours le recordman du plus grand nombre de buts sur une édition.La seconde fois date d'il y a 16 ans avec à la clé une qualification au bout du suspense pour les quarts de finale du Mondial 1998, grâce à un but en or de Laurent Blanc pendant la prolongation.
