However, after starting his reign with a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia, Roberto Mancini will be demanding a strong display. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis!

Game Preview Mario Balotelli celebrating ItalyFrance are big favourites to win their World Cup group ahead of Australia, Denmark and Peru, but coach Deschamps will be hoping to iron out a few kinks in their last two matches.Taking on an Azzurri side still getting to terms with Roberto Mancini’s reign and not heading to Russia, France will be confident on Friday, especially as it has been 10 years since they lost to their rivals.Les Bleus have won the last two friendlies between them, with Italy’s last victory coming at Euro 2008, but the latter will be hoping Mancini’s new tenure is the beginning of a huge turnaround.Italy striker Mario Balotelli marked his return to international football with a goal against Saudi Arabia earlier in the week, but Mancini complained afterwards that he could have done “much better”.The ex-Manchester City star could be dropped for Friday’s encounter with Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza competing for his place.Considering the players on both sides, there is no shortage of dangerous talent with the likes of Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Giroud taking on Andrea Belotti, Jorginho and Lorenzo Insigne.last_img read more
