France continue quest for the title vs England

France continue quest for the title vs England

France and England are two teams favorite for the title, but unfortunately, one will be eliminated in this match. France are the defending champions, and are hoping to extend their stay in Qatar to defend their title. As for England, it was ages ago since they last tasted the title. These two teams are very impressive throughout their campaign, and momentum are with both of them. This will be a battle of who is more talented and more hungry for the World Cup title. These two teams meet on December 11, 2022, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

It was 10 years ago since these two teams meet in the international stage, which was at Euro 2012. However, in that game, they ended in draw, but prior to that, France won over England in the opener of Euro 2004. When talking about unofficial game, they met in 2017 in the friendlies, where France had a 3-2 victory. Currently, it was England who is considered to be the joint top scorer in the competition. What is good for them is that, they do not rely on one player alone, as eight of them scored a goal in the tournament. France on the other hand won the title in 2018 World Cup, with Mbappe as a 19-year old player for them. Now that he grew up, he is more capable as he was before.

France topped their group during the group stage, but it is not surprising as it is already expected for the defending champions. They win over Australia and Denmark, but suffered a 0-1 loss to Tunisia. Currently, they already scored nine goals in the tournament, five of those were from their star, Mbappe. Now, they are going against a very tough team, England, which may be one of their toughest opponent in the World Cup. Additionally, they eye for their second consecutive title, so you can expect that France will be all-out in this match. Since they are as dominant as they were when they won the title, they stand a chance against England.

The only problem for France is that injury keeps stopping them from being at their best as a team. They are still looking for Kyllian Mbappe, who is the most important player for France, as he sustained an injury.

England was able to overcome a very challenging squad when they go against Senegal, qualifying them for the quarterfinals. However, their coach continues to struggle on find the best 11 for this match. Going against France is a very challenging role, not just because they are the defending champions, but also because they are a hard to beat team. However, England proved that they are a team who is very capable, and should not be underestimated. They are the number one when it comes to goal scoring, so expect that this game will be a shootout for them.

After flying back to England during the weekend, Raheem Sterling will be back for England and will play in this match. His absence could make this match even harder for England, so they are just lucky to have him back.
