For Luis Enrique and his side — littered with young Olympians — a second victory at the San Siro on Sunday will be all the sweeter, with an unchanged lineup likely in store for them.

Predicted Spain starting XI: Simon-GK — Azpilicueta, Laporte, Pau Torres, Alonso — Koke, Busquets, Gavi — Sarabia, Ferran Torres, Oyarzabal.

Position France roster
Goalkeepers Lloris, Costin, Maignan
Defenders Pavard, Kimpembe, Varane, Kounde, Dubois, Upamecano, Digne, L. Hernandez, T. Hernandez
Midfielders Pogba, Tchouameni, Guendouzi, Rabiot, Veretout
Forwards Griezmann, Martial, Mbappe, Diaby, Benzema, Ben Yedder

After backing up their Russia 2018 World Cup triumph with disappointments in their initial 2019 Nations League run and then Euro 2021, Les Bleus’ 3-2 semifinal victory over Belgium will have restored faith for Didier Deschamps and company during a trying week.

Kylian Mbappe’s suggestion that he may be unwanted at international level didn’t stop him from putting his penalty hoodoo to bed and he will likely lead an unchanged side.

Predicted France starting XI (3-4-3): Lloris-GK — Kounde, Varane, L. Hernandez — Pavard, Pogba, Rabiot, T. Hernandez — Griezmann, Benzema, Mbappe.
