The remake of a match with inevitably painful memories: four years after having seen Euro 2016 slip away for the benefit of Portugal, the France team meets up with Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates on Sunday evening for a Nations League meeting (8:45 p.m.).

Update on the issue: going it alone in the League of Nations

The specter of Euro 2016 would almost make you forget that this match is not friendly: the duel will decide between the two co-leaders (6 points) of group 3 of the first division of the League of Nations, this friendly competition which Portugal has won the first edition.

Winning Sunday night would ward off the prospect of relegation to the second division, while the other two residents of the group, Sweden and Croatia (0 points), faced each other in Zagreb in the early evening.

Update on the compositions: the whole Blues?

If Portugal lost its Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes and his Lille defender José Fonte due to contamination with Covid-19, the Blues seem to be complete, between promising young people and still effective executives.

Antoine Griezmann, substitute and already scorer on Wednesday, postulates a return to the starting eleven, like Pogba, Raphaël Varane, Lucas Hernandez and Kylian Mbappé.

Presnel Kimpembe, Adrien Rabiot and N'Golo Kanté also have a card to play.

Update on memories: France wants a (small) revenge

Sunday, there will certainly not be the 80,000 spectators of July 10, 2016 but only a thousand, health restrictions oblige.

There will also be no damn 109th minute in this meeting, nor Eder in the Portuguese jersey, the providential striker of the Euro evolving far from the selection for several years.

But there will be memories: Cristiano Ronaldo who comes out in tears after 25 minutes of play, Blaise Matuidi collapsed at the end of the meeting, coach Didier Deschamps who removes his silver medal from around his neck after the presentation of the trophies… "We have not forgotten the Euro", slips Paul Pogba, holder that evening, like Olivier Giroud, Hugo Lloris and Antoine Griezmann.
