Republic of Ireland travel to Paris to take on Les Blues in Stade de France, and Brian Kerr's men are confident of getting a result.
Raymond Domenech's men drew their opening Word Cup qualifier at home to Israel, and the Irish think they are there for the taking.
The former World and European champions have seen a host of stars retire, including Zinedine Zidane, Marcel Desailly and Claude Makelele.
Domenech is also without the suspended Patrick Vieira for the match, and Morrison believes Keane can now dominate the match.
"Roy was not fully fit for the Switzerland game last month, but he still played very well," said the Birmingham striker.
"With Patrick Vieira missing, France will not fancy taking us on, and with Roy in the side they will know they are in for a tough game.
"When you are sitting in the dressing room before the game and you see Roy sitting there it is a massive boost and confidence-wise it feels as good as a goal start.
"Because he is such a massive presence the other team are scared of him."
