Match Preview

With the firepower on performance, it seems hard to envisage a low-scoring game and both sides have shown how deadly they can be in the final third.
At the other end of the pitch, however, both teams have afforded opportunities to their opponents and France is yet to keep a clean sheet in the game.
England for their part have enjoyed three shut-outs but even in the impressive 3-0 last-16 win over Senegal, they let the African nation the kind of chances that France will certainly not spurn.
Backing goals in this match seems to make a lot of sense and this should be an entertaining clash.

Team News


England vs. France - Prediction, EnglandSource: Cornwalllive

England's victory over Senegal was somewhat surpassed by the news of a break-in at the home of Chelsea attacker Raheem Sterling, who flew back to the UK over the weekend, but he will come back with the team on Friday and should push for inclusion. Arsenal's Ben White is also still ruled out for personal reasons.
Callum Wilson has had the good condition from a minor strain but was never considered to start, and Southgate was also been handed a slight scare with Declan Rice, who missed training on Wednesday because of illness, although his ailment is doubtful to prevent him from playing on Saturday.
Many have tipped Southgate to revert to a three-man backline for the weekend, but the 52-year-old coach has implied that he will stick with the tried-and-tested 4-3-3 setup that has paid dividends so far, permitting Henderson to find connection with Rice and Bellingham in the midfield once more.

Over at the Bleus camp, a media frenzy was flashed as top scorer Mbappe skipped training on Tuesday because of discomfort in his ankle, but it was simply a false alarm, as the 23-year-old was back on the practice pitches on Wednesday and should form part of an untouched XI.
Significantly, France has won all nine of their World Cup matches that Mbappe has started, and his attacking counterpart Giroud - who has scored three goals to his credit in Qatar - could equal a record set by a 38-year-old Roger Milla, who to date is the only 36+ player to score 4 goals at a World Cup.
Aurelien Tchouameni and Jules Kounde will both miss any potential semi-final if they are yellow-carded here, but Deschamps is doubtful to factor in any on-field disciplinary infringements when picking his best XI.
