Deschamps considers resting regulars ahead of Spain clash

Dider Deschamps is weighing up whether to rest some key players ahead of France's game with Spain next week.

Before they meet the World and European champions, France have to face Georgia, in a game in which Blaise Matuidi, Yohan Cabaye, Maxime Gonalons and Laurent Koscielny will be walking a disciplinary tightrope - if any get a yellow card they'll miss the Spain game.

"That is a possibility but that doesn't mean I will do it," said Deschamps. "The risk of suspension is an extra danger. Freshness is important when you are playing two teams with completely different profiles, and I have to take into consideration that I have four players who could be suspended (for the Spain game) and three of them in midfield."
