France coach Didier Deschamps has made six changes to his team to face Argentina.

Deschamps, who reverted to his most efficient lineup, selected the same players who edged Peru 1-0 in their second group match, as Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has been given the duty to torment the Argentine backline.

Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe all start, while Samuel Umtiti, Raphael Varane, Lucas Hernandez and N’Golo Kante also start from the get-go.

Meanwhile, Argentina, which had to beat Nigeria in the last group match to get into the knockout round, will look to captain Lionel Messi to provide the spark.

Coach Jorge Sampaoli made just one change to his side from that game — replacing the miss-firing Gonzalo Higuain with Cristian Pavon to lead the attack.

Manchester City English Premier League winning striker Sergio Aguero remains on the bench, while Franco Armani keeps his place in goal after a solid performance in the 2-1 win over Nigeria last time out.

Marcos Rojo, Nicolas Otamendi, Javier Mascherano and Angel Di Maria all start.

France will be hoping to limit Messi’s involvement.

“Messi is Messi,” said Deschamps.

“We’d like to mark and neutralise him but we know very well he can make the difference with very little. We have to take that into account.”

Starting Lineups:

France: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Lucas Hernandez, Samuel Umtiti, N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Blaise Matuidi, Olivier Giroud,

Argentina: Franco Armani, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Rojo, Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Tagliafico, Javier Mascherano, Ever Banega, Enzo Perez, Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Cristian Pavon.
