France eyes to win back-to-back titles this year, and be the only third nation to become the back-to-back champions. So far in the contest, only Brazil and Italy are the ones who won the title back-to-back. This is the first time since 1962 for a nation to receive two consecutive titles in the World Cup. Injury have been hurting them even before the tournament, so it is already an achievement that they come this far. In the group stage, they were able to win twice. They had a tough knockout stage, and quarter finals too, beating Poland and England. If Kylian Mbappe continues to play the way he does, France has a high chance in this match.
