Fekir starts – France’s likely starting XI vs Peru

Liverpool target Nabil Fekir could make his first World Cup start for France after impressing in the opening game against the Aussies.

Fekir should replace Bayern Munich star Tolisso to start as the most advanced midfielder. The Lyon star should partner Pogba and Kante in the center of the park.

Giroud provided the crucial assist to win the last game and he deserves to start against Peru. Lemar might replace Mbappe in the attacking midfield to partner Griezmann behind the Chelsea striker.

As far as the defense is concerned, Mendy should replace Hernandez in the left back position. On the other hand, Sidibe should replace Pavard in the right back position.

The likes of Varane and Umtiti will likely retain their starting positions in the central defense in front of Spurs goalie Lloris.

Here is France’s likely XI vs Peru.
