Giroud & Benzema

Do you think associating Giroud and Benzema could work ? Giroud is good in the air and got a decent passing. But Blanc will have to rething the whole starting line up

I could see

Lloris Debuchy Mexes Rami Clichy M'Vila Cabaye (Diarra) Nasri (Ribéry, Ben Arfa) Menez Benzema Giroud

Very risky. France have gone undefeated now in 19 matches using the 4-2-3-1. Is it worth experimenting now?

I'm not sure if it's worth going with the two up front, but I'd be more comfortable with a 3 man attacking midfield. Nasri-Ribery-Menez.

This may raise a few eyebrows, but I'd almost rather see Giroud starting. Benzema's finishing is questionable when you really look at his goals compared to his squandered chances.
