PARIS: France coach Didier Deschamps handed Samuel Umtiti his international debut as the Euro 2016 hosts made two enforced changes for Sunday´s quarter-final against Iceland in Paris.
Umtiti, 22, who is set to join Barcelona from Lyon later this month replaces the suspended Adil Rami in central defence alongside Laurent Koscielny.
Moussa Sissoko comes in for N´Golo Kante, who is also serving a one-match ban, on the right side of midfield with Deschamps opting for a 4-2-3-1 at the Stade de France.
Iceland became the first nation to use the same starting XI for their first five matches at the European Championship as joint-coaches Lars Lagerback and Heimir Hallgrimsson kept faith with the side that beat England 2-1 last Monday.
