France players during a training session, 11 JuneReuters

France will look to ease their way through Group E, with Switzerland, Honduras and Ecuador expected to fight for that second place.

While France may have struggled to qualify for the World Cup finals in Brazil, they have been favoured with an easy-looking draw, and it will be a big disappointment if they do not come away from Group E as the winners, despite losing their talisman Franck Ribery to injury.

Switzerland look favoured to join France in the last 16, but Ecuador will fancy their chances in South American conditions. Honduras showed against England what they are made of, so they cannot be counted out either; but at the end of the day it is France's group to lose.
