Match of the week
France vs Netherlands
Thursday, August 31 (19:45)
Sky Sports Football
This World Cup qualifier is of vital importance to both nations.
France and the Netherlands both find themselves trailing Sweden, who will play Bulgaria and Belarus away from home during this international break, in Group A.
If Sweden can come through those two matches unscathed they will be in an excellent position to qualify or at least secure a play-off spot, leaving room for only one other team in the group to join them.
The Dutch have already sacked Danny Blind during this current cycle, with Dick Advocaat now at the helm.
The jury is still out, meanwhile, on Didier Deschamps, who despite 2016's European Championship final appearance has not quite figured out how to get the best out of arguably the most talented pool of players in the world.
A win for Les Bleus, who are three points ahead of the Netherlands, at Stade de France would all but assure them of a place in Russia, but any other result and the pressure will really be on the World Cup winner in the dugout.
