Les Bleus also were hit hard at midfield as N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba are sidelined with hamstring and knee injuries, respectively. France still has the services of forward Kylian Mbappe, who scored four goals during the team's championship run in 2018 and leads Ligue 1 this season with 12 tallies in 14 matches.
