Ronald Koeman is back in charge of a Dutch camp that has been hit by a virus outbreak, leading to five players being sent home on Thursday as they look to build on a strong World Cup run to the quarter-finals.
France are also keen to bounce back from their own heartbreak final defeat in Qatar, also on penalties at the hands of Argentina, and have a fresh-faced squad led by new captain Kylian Mbappe as Group B gets underway.
