France, the former World Cup champion, will play 1966 football World Cup champion England after beating Poland in the tournament last-16 match at Al Bayt Stadium. By winning, France will go to the Semi-Finals, although Argentina and Croatia have already entered.
After defeating Senegal 3-0, England went to the quarterfinals. With their best players, England vs France appear to be very evenly matched, but both teams have made it clear that they will not consider this encounter lightly.
France hopes to retain the victors’ crown for the second straight year despite England’s claims that they will bring the World Cup “again.”
France vs England Preview
If you take England into account, England has frequently lost in the quarterfinals. At this point in 2006, 2002, 1986, 1970, 1962, & 1954, competitions, in England were eliminated. Their six most recent World Cup exits came at the hands of European opponents.
France, who have won the World Cup twice, has advanced to the quarterfinals in 5 of the previous seven tournaments. This covers each of their most recent three FIFA World Cup competitions. Yet, England defeated France in the 2002 World Cup match. Moreover, they had previously fallen to England in the competition in both 1966 & 1982.
France vs England Hed-to-Head
Both teams wager to bet on their crucial players and how they help their teams win games. Gareth Southgate, the coach of England, wants to be the first coach to lead his team to two World Cup semifinal appearances.
On the other hand, France manager Didier Deschamps is placing a stake in the team’s incredible teamwork during this competition in Qatar. In eight of their last ten knockout matches against other UEFA teams, his team has won. But it still needs to be done to silence the naysayers.
