France has shockingly been able to reach the semi-finals of the ongoing European Championship with an unimpressive display. Didier Deschamps charges have not been anywhere good yet they are in the last four.

A team that has Mbappe, Dembele, Thuram, Barcola, Giroud, Coman as attackers cannot be struggling infront of the post.

In the five games played so far, France are yet to score a single goal from open play. All the three goals scored in the tournament have not been what they had wanted. Two own goals and a penalty are the sources of France’s three goals.

All the entire French players are eligible to face Spain on Tuesday night at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

Tactically, Didier Deschamps has not been able to get things right as even in the middle of the tournament, the legendary coach is struggling to get things right especially with his formation.

Luis De la Fuente’s Spain have won every game so far in Germany with the latest win coming against Germany in the 2-1 win in the Round 16. Beaten host nation in a tournament at such stage is always a difficult one and La Roja must be praised for that incredible feat on Friday.

Dani Carvajal, Pedri and Le Normand who have all played crucial roles for Spain en route to the semi-finals will miss the French clash due to injuries or suspension.

Their absence will be a big blow for Spain and De la Fuente as it will be difficult for their replacements to hit the top form against France.

Spain has attacked every opponent thus far and has exhibited fearlessness and boldness making this fixture a difficult one for France.
