France coach Marc Lievremont has named an unchanged team for Sunday's World Cup final against New Zealand in Auckland.
Morgan Parra continues in the fly-half position ahead of his more established counterparts in what is a huge sign of confidence from his coach.
Parra plays outside Dimitri Yachvili, whose earlier injury in the tournament has gone and is fully fit this weekend.
Full-back Maxime Medard retains his spot, while winger Vincent Clerc shrugged off any signs of injury from Wales captain Sam Warbuton's dangerous tackle in the semi-final to hold onto the right wing jersey.
It is the third match in a row that Lievremont has named the same starting line-up, although he is yet to reveal who his reserves will be for the Eden Park contest.
He has until Friday evening to confirm which 22 players will be playing.
France are massive underdogs for the final after an underwhelming campaign so far, losing to Tonga and New Zealand in the pool stages and struggling to overcome 14-man Wales in the semi-finals, while there have also been rumours of disagreements and splits in the squad.
Lievremont was also unhappy that some of the players went against orders to celebrate their semi-final triumph, their coach calling them "spoiled brats" and "selfish".
However, Lievremont believes that his team have the ability to win a first World Cup final.
"I am not sure if it does help. We are in the final match and every time we play them (New Zealand) it is the same thing, they are always the favourites," said Lievremont.
"But I believe in my team and I believe they can win."
He was impressed by the host nation's dominant 20-6 semi-final victory over the Wallabies last Sunday.
"It is always the same when it comes down to the All Blacks, in the first half of the match they were very strong and aggressive and they were impressive," added Lievremont. "In the second half, it was the same thing and the All Blacks were dominating.
"You know I expect the best from the All Blacks and I think they played their best rugby in that match and they were exceptional."
And he wasn't entertaining any thoughts that France's opponent would already feel they had one hand on the World Cup.
"In terms of their attitude, I do not think so," Lievremont said of a possible cock-sure attitude by the All Blacks. "Maybe their supporters think so.
"Fifteen men in white will come on the field and 15 men in black will come on the field and the best team will win."
