France is one of the great forces of world football. He already won a World Cup, in 1998, and two European Cups, in 1984 and in 2000. It is important to remember that in the last World Cup, played in Brazil, the French did not go beyond the quarterfinals, when they lost with Germany by 0-1. More recently, France lost the Euro 2016 final at home, with Portugal. Normally the trainer Didier Deschamps plays in 4-3-3, being Giroud the most offensive reference of the team. However, it is important to underline that one of the great highlights of the team is the midfielder Pogba: this player is possessor of great technical quality and pass. We emphasize that the French team presents enormous competition in the offensive organization and in the maintenance of possession of the ball. In doubt for this game is Mbappé, due to a problem in the ankle.

In their matches there is a tendency for goals, since 19 of the last 22 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they suffered the first goal 5 times and only managed 1 comeback.
The Australian national team has managed to improve at all levels. It will participate for the fourth consecutive time in the World Cup and in 2006 it managed to reach the last eight. To also remember that the Australians have an Asian Cup and 4 Cups of the OFC Nations. In this game against France, one of the great favorites to beat this competition, it is expected that coach Bert van Marwijk plays in the usual 4-2-3-1, privileging the defensive organization and counterattacks. In addition, the Australian team will use the flanks to create danger: Mathew Leckie is a very fast player and exempt in the transport of the ball. It is inevitable to highlight Tim Cahill, one of the great dangers at the time of finalizing. Without great absences, the coach must act in maximum strength.
