Netherlands vs France - Qualifications FIFA 2018
Amsterdam Arena, Amsterdam, Netherlands 
Monday, 10 October 2016 - 20:45 CET

Following a 1-1 draw at Sweden back in September, Netherlands team won 4-1 at home against Belarus last time out, with 24-year-old Quincy Promes scoring a brace. Their win ended a shocking run of five losses in a row at home for them, and they have only won four of their last 13 on home turf, losing six of them.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has missed out on the squad, but Quincy Promes and Vincent Janssen made up for his absence in midweek. Davy Klaassen, Wesley Sneijder and Quncy Promes are expected to start in the offensive midfielders positions. Goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has injured an ankle in training and is set to be replaced by Michel Vorm. Arjen Robben has been also ruled out through injury.
France team recorded a comfortable 4-1 home win against Bulgaria as Kevin Gameiro got two and Antoine Griezmann and Dimitri Payet bagged a goal apiece. That result followed a disappointing draw at Belarus last month and a 3-1 defeat of Italy in an International Friendly. Sagna has been ruled out after suffering a hamstring injury last time out and will be replaced by Djibril Sidibe. This could be Didier Deschamps' only change to his 4-2-3-1 formation, in which Gameiro will retain his lone forward berth and Payet, Griezmann and Moussa Sissoko will start as offensive midfielders.
The last meeting between these two sides came in March as a memorial match for Johan Cruyff with France coming out on top 3-2 in Amsterdam thanks to a last minute goal by Blaise Matuidi after Netherlands had come back from 2-0 down.

Probable lineups:
Netherland: Stekelenburg – Karsdorp, van Dijk, Bruma, Blind – Strootman, Propper – Promes, Klaassen, Wijnaldum – Janssen 
France Lloris – Sidibe, Varane, Koscielny, Kurzawa – Matuidi, Pogba – Sissoko, Griezmann, Payet – Gameiro.
