João Moutinho
William Carvalho
88' Portugal make a triple-change. The first sees Joao Moutinho come on for Carvalho.
85' Five minutes remain at Stade de France. Are we going to see a dramatic winning goal, or are we destined for a stalemate?
K. Coman
K. Mbappé
84' Mbappe makes way for the French, with Kingsley Coman introduced in his place.
82' Martial looks to make his mark as he looks to play a one-two with Griezmann. But the return pass is cut out by the defence, who continue to stand firm.
Renato Sanches
Bruno Fernandes
80' Another change for Portugal as Renato Sanches comes on for the final 10 minutes. Fernandes is given a rest.
78' Pogba continuing to have a positive influence on this game. He embarks on another powerful run until he is brought down and France are awarded a free-kick in a dangerous position.

76' Some space opens for Pogba to let fly from distance. There is plenty of venom in his drilled effort, but Patricio does well to gather.
A. Martial
O. Giroud
74' France turn to the bench with Anthony Martial introduced in favour of Giroud.
73' PEPE!!! BUT IT WON'T COUNT! The defender ghosts in at the far post to meet a deep free-kick into the box and heads past Lloris. However, he began his run too early and is rightly flagged offside.
71' Great defending! Pogba has stamped his authority on the game over the past couple of minutes. He seeks out Griezmann with a lofted ball into the box, but Semedo recovers vital ground to get there first and nod it back to Patricio.
68' France's impressive winning streak is under threat. Before today, Les Bleus had been victorious in each of their last five games.
66' We are approaching the midway point in the second half at Stade de France, where we are still goalless. Can either side find a winning goal?
63' Liverpool's new signing Jota has just under half an hour to make a decisive impact on this game. After recently opening his account for the Reds, could he have more reasons to celebrate today?
Diogo Jota
Bernardo Silva
61' Portugal make their first change of the game as Silva makes way to be replaced by Diogo Jota.
61' Portugal make their first change of the game as Silva makes way to be replaced by Diogo Jota.
58' Griezmann was on target in the rout of Ukraine on Wednesday, taking his international tally to 32 goals. That put him outright fifth on France's all-time list, moving him ahead of Zinedine Zidane.
55' A chance almost opens up for Mbappe after Griezmann looked to play him in. However, he is unable to get the ball under control on this occasion.
53' Ronaldo is making his 167th international appearance today. Only 10 players have now earned more caps for their country, while he moves level with Iker Casillas and Latvia's Vitalijs Astafjevs.
50' Chance! Ronaldo peels away at the far post to meet a deep cross into the box. But he is unable to turn the ball towards goal with his outstretched leg.
47' Good goalkeeping! Receiving the ball in the area, Mbappe turns away from Pereira and bursts towards goal. He goes to chip Patricio, who reads the situation well to push the ball away.

46' France get the ball rolling once again!


44' Chance! Opportunities have been few and far between, but the ball breaks kindly for Giroud in the box. The Chelsea striker reacts quickly to get his shot away, but is unable to keep it down.
42' The Portuguese are also protecting a good run of form today. Unbeaten in their last five games, they have only been beaten once since their last-16 exit from the 2018 World Cup.

39' Portugal have lost 10 of their last 11 meetings with France, although they did come out on top in the most recent encounter and perhaps the most important. That was, of course, the Euro 2016 final which gave them their first major international honour. Further success followed in the inaugural Nations League three years later.

36' TALK! Fernandes whips a dangerous free-kick into the box from the right flank. The outstretched Felix gets his foot to the ball, but is unable to turn it towards goal. Ronaldo is incensed as had Felix let the ball run, he could have had a tap-in.
34' Portugal's most-capped goalkeeper, Patricio makes his 89th international appearance today. That moves him joint-ninth with Ricardo Carvalho on his country's all-time list.
32' Danger for Portugal as Griezmann beats the offside trap to latch onto a long ball in behind the defence. The angle is tight but the Barcelona forward draws a smart save out of Patricio with his powerful strike.

26' Ronaldo is seeking his first-ever international goal against France. He will certainly be hoping for better fortunes than in his last outing against the French, with injury forcing him off early in the final of the 2016 European Championship.
24' GREAT DEFENDING! A good spell of pressure from Portugal results in Silva poking the ball through for Ronaldo, who lines up to pull the trigger. However, Hernandez does brilliantly to throw himself in the way and take the sting out of the shot.

21' Following a quickly-taken free-kick, Fernandes has plenty of time to advance and take aim from distance. Fortunately for France, the shot takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner. The hosts deal with the subsequent set-piece.
19' France are aiming to continue their impressive form on home soil of recent times. In fact, Les Bleus are unbeaten in 15 games and you have to go back to a 3-2 defeat by Colombia in March 2018 for the last time they were beaten in their homeland.

17' A patient build-up from France results in Rabiot clipping the ball into the box, where Pogba towers above the defence but is unable to direct his powerful header towards goal.

15' Today sees Lloris win his 117th international cap, moving him ahead of Marcel Desailly to outright third on France's all-time list. Only Lillian Thuram and Thierry Henry boast more international appearances for Les Bleus with 142 and 123 respectively.
12' Silva just couldn't stretch far enough! The Manchester City winger times his run to beat the offside trap as he looks to connect with Fernandes' clever ball in-behind. However, he is just unable to get the ball under control with his outstretched leg and Lloris collects.

11' Good build-up from Portugal down the right-hand side sees Silva feed the overlapping Semedo in the box. The right-back's cross takes a deflection and is gobbled up by Lloris.

9' At the other end, Felix tries to tip-toe his way through the French defence, who stand firm on this occasion to snuff out his threat.

7' France enjoy a neat and lengthy spell in possession, switching the ball from flank to flank. Eventually, their momentum comes to nothing as Mbappe's deflected cross is gathered by Patricio.

5' Heavily bandaged up, Giroud makes his way back onto the field.
3' Giroud is in need of further attention following that incident. The medical team are seeing to a nasty cut on the back of the striker's head, providing heavy bandaging to the wound.
Rúben Dias
Yellow Card
2' Dias is shown the first yellow card of the game after an elbow to the back of Giroud's head. The defender is fortunate that his punishment was not more severe.
1' OFF WE GO! The referee blows his whistle and Portugal get us underway.
