Both sides won their respective World Cup qualifiers last week. France history was written in their clash against Luxembourg as Kylian Mbappe became the youngest international for Les Bleus in the last 60 years.

Kylian Mbappe became the youngest player since Wisniewski against Sweden back in 1955. Kylian Mbappe made his debut with the age of 18 years and 95 days. Wisniewski made his debut aged 18 years and 61 days.

If Kylian Mbappe starts the game against Spain, he will become the youngest starter ever for France.
