Tournament: friendly matches
The destiny of world champions will be decided in Germany where Germans will try not to lose the points.
And they will fight not for France but for their own honor and dignity as they have already left Division A of the Nations League.
Deschamps’s team could avoid that nervous ending of the group stage but in the Netherlands they lost with the score 0:2.
Bearing in mind the fact that at home they won over Oranje only with the score 2:1, it is clear that even the draw moves the Oranges into the final stage of the tournament.
Tanguy Ndombele debuted in the national team during the previous international shoulder period. In a match with the Netherlands the holding halfback of Lyon came off the substitutes’ bench but he wasn’t able to help the partners to avoid defeat.
Adil Rami can not play in the forthcoming match because of an injury of the gastrocnemius muscle. At least he didn’t participate in training for some days before the match.
After summer forum the Uruguayan Football Federation did not decide on changes. The coach-veteran Óscar Wáshington Tabárez continues to work as the head coach of the national football team, despite quite respectable age (71 years).
In a match with Brazilians, Cavani, Suarez and the company were working in habitual for themselves manner. But nevertheless the goal with a penalty scored by Neymar forced them to give up (0:1).
The defeat in the friendly match doesn’t mean that it is time to be sad but the relations between Uruguay with Brazil are very special.
A series of defeats of Uruguay is composed of three matches. The victory in the match with the best team of the world can return to Tabarez’s team confidence in their forces.
Head-to- heads France vs Uruguay
This is an interesting pair of the national teams – half of their head-to-heads (4 out of 8) ended in draw 0:0. In 2002 and 2010 the similar result took place on the FIFA World Cups.
In 1966 Latin Americans won (2:1). The quarterfinal of the last World Cup is for certain still remembered (2:0).

Time of responsible meetings has passed and the players for certain will use the end of the year in their national teams to have some fan. Bearing in mind the level of forwards who will play on both sides and absence of full backs such as Godin and Rami, we trust in the productive scenario.
