SALVADOR, Brazil, June 20 (Reuters) - France named striker Olivier Giroud in the starting line-up for their second World Cup Group E match against Switzerland on Friday, bolstering an attacking line-up in which the in-form Karim Benzema will play out on the left.
The reshuffle means Antoine Griezmann, who started on the left with Benzema up front in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Honduras, will drop to the bench, with France coach Didier Deschamps opting to utilise Giroud's height and power.
