10:26: Well that's not all ça but we will go with which team on Tuesday?
The question has $10,000… No Benzema, so we can assume it's open for Giroud. Around, we will have at least Mbappé and Grizou, but in a 4-2-3-1 which would offset Kyky (çi don't believe it for a second) or rather a kind of 4-3-3, with Griezmann a bit lower, Mbappé with liberties starting from the side left and Demb&éléé or Coman àgrave; right ? What do you think about it? You have four hours (and comments to express yourself).
