Euro2016: France will miss Rami, Kante in quarter-final - Morrison

Former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison feels that France will miss Adil Rami and N'Golo Kante in their Euro2016 quarter-final.

Both players will be suspended for the last eight clash having picked up bookings in the 2-1 win over the Republic of Ireland on Sunday.

France will face either Iceland or England in their quarter-final clash in Paris on July 3.

Morrison told Sky Sports: "I think it will be England v France. I think it would be a top-quality game, two talented teams going at it. It would be some game, and whoever wins that can go all the way.

"They're already short on centre-halves, and with Rami now suspended I think they go to Eliaquim Mangala, who I don't think had a great season, so I don't know what his confidence is like.

"And obviously Kante, who has been one of the best midfielders around in the last season. They will miss him, and somebody like Yohan Cabaye would have to come in, who doesn't have what Kante has. France will miss them both."
