Antoine Griezmann continues to chalk up incredible numbers while another France forward is also looming large ahead of the FIFA World Cup.
Elsewhere, fellow Group C nation Peru have given a clear insight into how their squad could look in Russia.
Catch up with that and more in this week's Opponent Watch.
Though he was held scoreless at Barcelona on the weekend, Les Bleus star Griezmann is unlikely to stay quiet for long.
The 26-year-old netted four in his previous outing against Leganes to make it seven in just two La Liga games.
"I hope that I can have a similar year to the one I had in the European Championship, where I was really enjoying what I was doing," Griezmann said of his scoring momentum.
Didier Deschamps could call on Lyon captain Nabil Fekir to supply Griezmann with the ammunition in Russia.
A creative spark, Fekir has notched 16 goals in Ligue 1 and looks set to add to his 10 caps.
And he's clearly a favourite with his club's fans.
Over the weekend, Peru coach Ricardo Gareca named a 26-man squad for the friendlies against Croatia and Iceland.
First-choice goalkeeper Pedro Gallese has not sufficiently recovered from a knee injury, meaning there is an opportunity for the uncapped Alejandro Duarte.
"They told me [the recovery period] has to be six weeks. I'm feeling better, but the doctor does not want to risk it," Gallese told RPP News of the injury, for which he underwent surgery two weeks ago.
Gareca's other options in goal - locally-based pair Jose Carvallo and Carlos Caceda - have nine caps between them.
Midfielder Roberto Siucho is the only other newcomer, while there is a recall for Cristian Benevente - scorer of eight league goals for Belgian side Charleroi.
Ajax vice-captain Lasse Schone has promised Denmark will be on the attack in Russia.
Schone is on track to play at his first FIFA World Cup after an anterior cruciate ligament injury scuppered his chances in 2010.
The experienced midfielder is eager to make the most of the opportunity.
"We have a group where we have a decent chance," Schone told FIFA.com. "I have a pretty strong feeling we will be able to do something good.
"If you've come that far of course you believe in your own strength. If you're turning up at a championship only hoping to score one goal, it's better to stay at home."
Schone also outlined his desire to share set-pieces with Christian Eriksen. It could be a shrewd move, judging by his stunner for Ajax in January.

Rukavytsya ready to relive 'unbelievable' World Cup experience
Caltex Socceroos striker Nikita Rukavytsya is hoping history repeats itself as he zeroes in on an unexpected FIFA World Cup berth. The 30-year-old flyer was a surprise recall for last year's do-or-die play-offs against Syria and Honduras having spent the previous four years in
Opponent Watch: Celtic starlet set to lock horns with Rogic
Tom Rogic's superb form could hit a grinding halt in Oslo if a Celtic team-mate has his way in the international friendly between the Caltex Socceroos and Norway. Elsewhere, Colombia are set to have some additional motivation for next week's match in London while a FIFA World
