Kylian Mbappe has now been named Didier Deschamps’ captain as Les Bleus’ coach looks to win the one major international to have evaded him thus far.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker famously scored a hat-trick in the final loss to Argentina but now gets a chance to lead a new generation of France stars.

Hugo Lloris and Raphael Varane have retired as the production line in France continues to produce.

It’s also a new – well somewhat – dawn for the Netherlands. Ronald Koeman has returned to lead the Oranje following the retirement of Louis van Gaal and is looking to pick up where he left off before taking the Barcelona job in 2019.

France vs Netherlands is scheduled for a 7.45pm GMT kick-off time on Friday 24 March, 2023.

The Stade De France in Paris will host.

TV channel: The friendly is being broadcast on Viaplay Sports. Coverage gets underway at 7.35pm, ahead of a 7.45pm kick-off. Subscription costs £14.99 a month, or £11.99 a month if you opt for a 12-month contract.

Live stream: Viaplay Sports subscribers can stream the game on the Viaplay website.

Several injured players are absent for France including William Saliba, N’Golo Kante and Wesley Fofana.

Karim Benzema and Hugo Lloris feature in a troop of recently retired stars too, meaning Deschamps will likely give gametime to some fresh faces in Euros qualification.

For the Dutch, Frenkie de Jong has been ruled out after picking up a knock during Barcelona’s win over Real Madrid in LaLiga. Newcastle’s Sven Botman could make his debut in defence.

Denzel Dumfries is suspended.

Such is the strength in depth available to Deschamps, there is little reason to imagine France dropping off even despite their World Cup heartache.

France to win 3-1.

France wins: 14

Draws: 3

Netherlands wins: 11
