According to Daily Mail, the trio of Pogba, Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann were in top shape during the session at today’s match venue.
Already, the World Cup winners kicked-off their qualification qualifiers after claiming with a 4-1 away win against Moldova, and are eyeing another three points at home.

But Les Bleus captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes that result won’t have any effect in today’s showdown.
Speaking with Sports.fr Lloris revealed France will adopt a new approach for the Euro 2020 qualifier.
“I think the context is completely different.
“In the friendly match, we perhaps showed a little self-importance, which cost us in the first period and for the first goal. We will approach this game with a lot of seriousness and ambition,” he added.
On his part, France boss, Didier Deschamps, is looking forward to better understanding from Les Bleus during the match.
“One team played hard, we were not there…
“I know the quality of this Icelandic team very well, I cannot expect less from them tomorrow. Their state of mind is in their DNA, they do not let go,” Deschamps summed up.
