Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann will be on the bench for France's clash against Tunisia at the FIFA World Cup as coach Didier Deschamps rung the changes for their final Group D game on Wednesday.

Forward Mbappe, who has scored three goals in the first two games, is given a breather as is attacking midfielder Griezmann and seven other players who started in the 2-1 win against Denmark last week.
