World champions France face Spain in the final of the Nations League at the San Siro stadium on Sunday. The following are five keys to the match:

It is hard to think of a more powerful national team front three than France's trio of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann and whatever else happens across the field, Spain will have to find a way to neutralise them.

In the semi-final win over Belgium on Thursday, Mbappe and Benzema played as a partnership, looking for each other regularly while Griezmann played in a floating role just behind them.

Spain's back line coped well enough against a three-pronged Italian attack in their semi-final but Mbappe's speed, Benzema's sharpness in front of goal and Griezmann's craft will be a different proposition.

Mikel Oyarzabal and Pablo Sarabia caused Italy's defence no end of trouble with their speed and incisiveness in the wide positions alongside forward Ferran Torres and Enrique will hope they can deliver a repeat performance.

French fullbacks Benjamin Pavard and Theo Hernandez played in advanced roles and provided a great deal of attacking width for Deschamps' team - with Pavard even setting up Hernandez for the last minute winner at the Juventus Stadium.

Will Deschamps ask them to stay deeper and keep an eye on Spain's wingers or will he expect his back three to take primary responsibility?
