World Cup champions France are back in action on Sunday, hoping that they have recovered from a lackluster post-World Cup run in the UEFA Nations League that saw them eliminated at the group stage of that newly inaugurated tournament. The France side will have one friendly match to warm up for a round of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers this weekend, while their opponent, Bolivia, will take this chance to fine tune their lineup ahead of their Copa America 2019 opener against Brazil on June 14, according to League Lane. But the Bolivians have typically ranked in the lower echelons of the South American international game, and the reigning world champs are heavily favored to cruise through the friendly match, which will live stream from Nantes.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the France vs. Bolivia international friendly match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Central European Time at the 38,000-seat Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau in Nantes, France, on Sunday, June 2. In Bolivia, the live stream begins at 3 p.m. Bolivia Time.

In the United Kingdom, the game gets underway at 8 p.m. British Summer Time on Sunday. In the United States, kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 12 p.m. Pacific. In India, the live stream gets going at 1:30 a.m. on Monday morning, June 3.

With the match falling just four days after the UEFA Europa League final, which saw Chelsea FC defeat English rival Arsenal to win that tournament, Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud may not be quite ready to lead the French attack as he did during the 2018 World Cup, according to Ligue1.com. That gives World Cup hero Kylian Mbappé a chance to move into the center-forward slot, rather than take his usual wide position.

In their most recent matches, a pair of friendlies in Japan and South Korea in March, Bolivia lost by 1-0 scores in each, per Soccerway. In fact, in their most recent five matches, Bolivia has been blanked in four of them, scoring only in a 2-2 draw with Nicaragua on March 3.
