Starting XI: France V Honduras

2014 FIFA World Cup

Group E

Teams: France V Honduras

Date: 15 June 2014

Venue: Estadio Beira-Rio

France will be looking to get their 2014 FIFA World Cup underway in positive fashion when they take on Honduras in a Group E clash at the Estadio Beira-Rio on Sunday.

The match is scheduled to start at 16h00 local time in Porto Alegre, which is 21h00 south African time.

France will be favourites to walk away with all three points, but will not take anything for granted after a disastrous 2010 World Cup campaign.

In South Africa four years ago Les Bleus finished bottom of their group after failing to win any of their three matches and will be eager to restore national pride.

To do that, they must first escape a tricky Group E which will also see them come up against an unpredictable Ecuador and a Swiss side that is well organised and should not be underestimated.

France’s first challenge is to pick up three points against Honduras, widely regarded as the weakest team in the group.

Not much is expected of Honduras who are appearing in only their third World Cup.

This is how they line up.

France: Lloris, Debuchy, Evra, Varane, Sakho, Cabaye, Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann, Matuidi, Pogba.

Honduras: Valladares, Figuero, Bernardez, Emilio, W. Palacious, Bengston, Costly, Espinoza, Najar, Garrido, Beckeles.
