France welcome Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portugal side to the Stade de France for a friendly match that both sides will be desperate to get a morale-boosting victory from.

Portugal go into the game on the back of a humiliating 1-0 defeat to Albania at home in their last Euro 2016 qualifier that saw Paulo Bento leave the manager’s post and his replacement, Fernando Santos, has made some changes to that side.

The biggest change is that Cristiano Ronaldo is fit and available to start, while Zenit St Petersburg forward Danny gets a recall and starts in what looks like a three-man attack with Ronaldo and Nani.

Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps’ side will be confident of victory after defeating Spain in their last home friendly, though the Euro 2016 hosts have made wholesale changes since their last match- a 1-1 draw with Serbia in Belgrade last month.

Here are the teams…

France
Mandanda - Evra, Varane, Mangala, Sagna - Pogba, Cabaye, Matuidi - Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann

Portugal
Patricio; Cedric, Alves, Pepe, Eliseu; Tiago, A Gomes, Moutinho; Nani, Ronaldo, Danny
