"His ankle was a bit swollen after the Australia game. But it's nothing bad," vice-captain Raphael Varane told a news conference.

Aside Griezmann Thomas Lemar and Samuel Umtiti are also experiencing knock.

France laboured hard against Austrailia before they could secure a 2-1 over the Socceroos and coach Didier Deschamps criticised their performance especially that of Griezmann.
