Five of the six French players with more than 100 caps to their name will be honoured ahead of the 26 March friendly with Brazil at the Stade de France. All are part of the golden generation who won the 1998 FIFA World Cup on home soil and UEFA EURO 2000. 103-time capped coach Didier Deschamps will host Thierry Henry (123 caps), Marcel Desailly (116), Zinédine Zidane (108) and Patrick Vieira (107) at lunch during the day while a ceremony will take place ahead of this prestigious encounter, which is a rerun of the 1998 final France won 3-0. Record-holder Lilian Thuram will be the lone centurions missing, but his turn will come, being honoured on 7 June before France take on Belgium.

Raphaël Varane registered seven minutes from time as France returned to winning ways with a 1-0 home success against a Sweden side deprived of injured captain Zlatan Ibrahimović. The Real Madrid CF defender scored a powerful header at the near post to seal the victory for Les Bleus. The UEFA EURO 2016 hosts dominated the tie at the Stade Vélodrome. Karim Benzema squandered the chance to double the lead after missing a late penalty. France were held by Albania on Friday.
