Team news
Both sides could name the same XI that started in their opening day victories over Ecuador and Honduras respectively.

Admir Mehmedi made an immediate impact of the bench in the win over Ecuador, however Valentin Stocker, the man he replaced, will probably be given another chance.

Rodriguez and Stephan Lichsteiner were a real threat from wide areas and the pair will need to continue to get forward if they are to trouble the French.

Bayern winger Xherdan Shaqiri struggled slightly, however will continue, with Granit Xhaka set for an attacking midfield role.

Benzema’s two goals means Olivier Giroud will continue on the bench, alongside his club team-mate Laurent Koscielny.

Raphael Varane and Mamadou Sakho have been preferred to Koscielny in the heart of the French defence under Didier Deschamps.

Mathieu Valbuena will continue from wide right, with Yohan Cabaye to remain in the impressive three man central midfield.

Switzerland (4-2-3-1): Benaglio, Lichsteiner, Djourou, von Bergen, Rodriguez, Behrami, Inler, Shaqiri, Xhaka, Stocker, Drmic
France (4-3-3): Lloris, Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra, Matuidi, Cabaye, Pogba, Valbuena, Benzema, Griezmann
