As France try to secure highest spot in Group D in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, all eyes are on the team’s upcoming match against Qatar this Saturday. France will likely be facing the runners-up of Group C in the match, and they will try to beat Qatar during the knockout phase. But the path towards the top will not be effortless. L’Equipe reports that France won’t be able to claim the gold medal with Kylian Mbappe to be their star. Without his presence, France’s team will be relying on their combined strength and skill to make up the gap.
1. France is likely to qualify for knockouts, in the event that Denmark wins one point.
When discussing the news of the upcoming World Cup match between France and Tunisia It is crucial to look at the team’s news that was revealed recently. Two stars of France’s team, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, are set to be left out in the game. This raises a critical question: Will France have the chance to make it through the knockout phase even if they’re capable of gaining just one point during their match against Denmark? This is a difficult question to answer that question as it’s contingent upon how the matches play out in the group they are in. If France earns one point against Denmark, they may still qualify for the knockouts should the teams from the group fail to perform the same way.
2. How likely is it France will be able to meet Argentina in the group D?
There is a possibility that France facing Argentina during the World Cup should they top Group D is a real possibility. France is predicted to win against any other team in Group D, as revealed by France’s team reports. Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe have been subbed out. France’s next opponent would likely be Argentina as they are most likely to win in the Group C. This means that, should the teams advance as anticipated, France and Argentina could possibly meet up in the later stages of the competition. People from both teams are likely to be eager to see the match take place, since both teams have an impressive roster of talent.
3. When is the timing of kick-off the time France will face the group C runners-up?
The eagerly anticipated game that will be played between France and Tunisia for the FIFA World Cup will take place on the 15th of June in 2018, with the kick-off set for 8:45 pm local time. Every team has released their individual announcements on their starting lineups. Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe are both players from France will sit on the bench. France as the current holders of the World Cup, are expected to deliver a solid performance in the match against Group C runners-up Tunisia. However, recent reports have suggested that Tunisia is making preparations to stifle France’s attack and could provide an intriguing aspect of the match should it come to realization.
4. What is the reason why France not using Mbappe for this match?
It was an intriguing decision, but one that carries a lot of importance. Mbappe and Griezmann both are two of the best players from France as both have demonstrated their worth as key contributors to the side in recent matches. Without them and Griezmann, the French team is deprived of two of its best offensive options, and, perhaps even more important, two the most experienced players. There is a good chance that the French team may employ a more conservative method of play and will be focusing on defense and ball possession instead of the more offensive method that both players may contribute to the game.
A Quick Review
It’s evident that France’s choice to play an effective XI during their most recent Group D fixture against Tunisia was a wise one. With the decision to leave out stars such as Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and others, Didier Deschamps was evidently seeking to keep the team’s energy and momentum while they battle for a chance to be a part of the World Cup Final. With the attention of the world and the entire country behind they, France will be hoping to score a victory on the pitch to help make their dreams a reality.
