After that result, Andriy Shevchenko’s men have tasted defeats against Poland (friendly), Germany and Switzerland.Didier Deschamps will come into this match with a strong squad at his disposal. All the key players remain fit and this gives the side a definite edge. There could be comebacks for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur’s Tanguy Ndombele and Anthony Martial of Manchester United.
