With their Russia 2018 triumph, France ended a 20 year wait for the World title, making it a record breaking one for Deschamps who won it as a player in 1998 and as a manager in Russia.
France’s second World Cup trophy came in grand style as they finished off as group winners, edging past Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium, and beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.
Heading to Qatar, the Les Blues are without the services of Kante and Pogba, both of whom were instrumental to the team’s 2018 success. They will be hoping to overcome the threats posed by this injury and avoid a repeat of 2002 when they crashed out in the group stage of their title defending campaign.
Having secured just one win in the last 5, France will be looking to rejig their form and start off this year’s edition of the global showpiece on a positive note.
The Socceroos will be looking to follow the footsteps of Senegal who beat them defending champions France 1-0 in the first group game in 2002 and went on to earn a historic quarter final ticket.
This is a big hurdle for Australia given the fact that they have won just once in their 4 meetings against France. In fact, that solitary win came in the early 2000s.
Here they will be banking on their 4-game unbeaten streak as they look to begin on a bright note and halt a run of 3 consecutive group stage exits.
POSSIBLE LINE UPS
