Notes

Thursday, 4 February 1999 - French coach Roger Lemerre has adjusted his front line for the trip to Wembley next week to face England.  Lilian Laslandes is recalled and is the current favourite to partner Arsenal striker Nicolas Anelka who has scored at Wembley on both previous occasions that he played at the venue with the English champions.  Olympique Marseilles goalkeeper Stephane Porato earns his first mention in the senior squad that contains five players who work in London with Premiership sides Chelsea and Arsenal.

Friday, 6 November 1998 - France have announced replacement matches after withdrawing from the January Confederations Cup tournament in Mexico.  Instead of that 8 team exhibition Roger Lemerre's world champions will play two conventional friendlies at the start of 1999.  France host Morocco on January 20th at the Velodrome in Marseilles while February brings a trip to London to play England at Wembley on the 10th.
