France vs Australia Preview

France won the World Cup last time around, in Russia in 2018. “Defending the title is very complicated,” France manager Didier Deschamps told The Athletic. “There’s always a bit of everything, but that’s the reality of very high-level football. When you’re at the very highest level, to win is very difficult, but to maintain it is even more difficult.”

On the injury front, France will be without Karim Benzema, who tore a thigh muscle while training shortly after arriving in Qatar. The French side will also be without Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante and and Paul Pogba.

France will be led by forward Kylian Mbappe, who had four goals in 2018 World Cup play, also scoring five times in qualifying rounds leading up to this matchup.

“Their strength is obviously their technique and their quality,” Socceroos coach Graham Arnold said about France heading into the matchup. “There’s only one way to take that away and that’s to be in their faces and not giving them time on the ball and time to play their way by putting pressure on them.”

The Australian squad has allowed just two goals over their last five games, so expect an aggressive mentality coming into this one. Led by Jamie Maclaren, who has produced seven goals over his last 10 games. On the injury front, Australia will be without Martin Boyle, who is dealing with a knee injury. Winger Marco Tilio will fill in for Boyle.

Here’s a look at the rosters for both teams heading into the matchup:

France:

Goalkeepers: Alphonse Areola, Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda Defenders: Lucas Hernandez, Theo Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Ibrahima Konate, Jules Kounde, Benjamin Pavard, William Saliba, Dayot Upamecano, Raphael Varane Midfielders: Eduardo Camavinga, Youssouf Fofana, Matteo Guendouzi, Adrien Rabiot, Aurelien Tchouameni, Jordan Veretout Forwards: Kingsley Coman, Ousmane Dembele, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Christopher Nkunku

Australia:

Goalkeepers: Mat Ryan (Copenhagen), Andrew Redmayne (Sydney FC), Danny Vukovic (Central Coast Mariners).
