France made it to the Round of 16 with six points. Everything seemed to be going as planned after suffering a heartbreaking setback in Tunisia. But throughout the group phase, Poland played a very different brand of football. Based on goal differential, they were dependent on the result of the match between Mexico and Saudi Arabia to move on to the knockout round.
In terms of appearance, France and Poland are radically dissimilar. While France places a strong emphasis on scoring goals and advancing, Czeslaw Michniewicz’s team places a strong emphasis on defense.
France Vs Poland
current champions In their final group game, France unusually lost to Tunisia. However, given that they tested their bench in that game, they would have to declare it an upset and continue. Les Blues had shown a strong performance in their opening two games. They scored two goals vs Denmark and 4 over Australia.
Poland had trouble advancing to the round of 16. They have quality, particularly in Robert Lewandowski, but they lacked bite in their performance against Argentina. They had a firm reliance on Wojciech Szczesny in goal, and they didn’t try to score because they knew that even a draw would advance them. They can’t allow France, who will annoy them with back-to-back attacks, to take advantage of them by being that defensive.

Players to Watch
Olivier Giroud, a French striker, needs just one more goal to assume sole control of the top spot in the nation’s all-time scoring list. He’ll try to take advantage of this chance. And Szczesny will be the one to put distance between these two groups.
