Both the sides will be looking to get their foot in the semi finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022

The two of the strongest teams of the tournament are England and France, will battle in the last quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022 which could be a game to remember forever. There are tons of superstars on both teams and all of them have been firing in the tournament. France might have been struck with a crisis of injuries before the tournament, but they looked fantastic.

While France is looking to defend their title, England is seeking to establish their supremacy. Despite the fact that each team has many superstars, France looks a lot better than England due to its experience. If this match matches up to expectations, it could be a much bigger spectacle than the final.

Kick off: 12:30pm (IST), 19:00 (GMT)

England form (all comps): D-W-D-W-W

France form (all comps): L-W-W-L-W

Players to Watch

Kylian Mbappe 

Kylian Mbappe is the top scorer of the tournament with five goals and is the biggest roadblock between England and their World Cup dream. He has been a rampant force on wings and his battle with Kylie Walker will be a neck-to-neck contest. Mbappe has done it for France so far in the tournament and will be hoping to continue his run.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has been the captain on a mission for three lions in the campaign so far. Although, he didn’t have luck in front of the goal in the starting matches but now has found his scoring boots back. He can be a trump card for England, especially against an untested French defence. 

Team News

Raheem Sterling has returned from home and is available for selection for Southgate. Although Ben White is still absent from the squad.

France don’t have any injury concerns going into this match but Tchouameni and Kunde are in danger of missing Semi-Finals if they are booked again.
