WORLD CUP 2022: FRANCE looks likely to become only third their back-to-back world cup champion

We are set for an exciting game as European Champions England face off against the reigning 2022 World Cup holders France at 2:00pm on Dec. 10.


France and England, two heavyweights with long histories, take the stage Dec. 10 to determine who moves to the 2022 World Cup semifinals.


French and England are now destined for the quarterfinals of the World Cup, which pits two of European soccers juggernauts against each other Saturday, Dec. 10, at Qatars Al Khor Stadium.

French defeated Poland 3-1, while England defeated Senegal 3-0; both have advanced to a World Cup quarter-final clash. France defeated holders Brazil 3-0, with Zinedine Zidane scoring twice and Emmanuel Petit scoring in stoppage time.

The rout gave France its first ever World Cup title, becoming only the sixth team, following Uruguay, Italy, England, West Germany, and Argentina, to win the tournament on its own turf.

French are looking to become only the third team in history to win consecutive World Cups, and they looked to be one of the more dangerous teams to watch in 2022 in Qatar, having opened with a 2-0 victory over hosts Algeria.

French will look to break the unenviable trend in the 2022 World Cup, aiming to be just the second reigning champions in the past century not to get eliminated at the group stage.

France and England romped to a Quarterfinals appearance in Qatars FIFA World Cup, scoring in bunches to put them convincingly past tournament-contending Poland and Senegal.

French are through to the quarter-finals of the FIFA 2022 World Cup, and they can well be considered favourites at this moment following a 3-1 victory against Poland on Sunday, underlining the status of Polands arguably most talented player, Kylian Mbappes.

French boasts one of the best players in the world in Kylian Mbappe, who leads 2022 World Cup goalscorers with five.

Despite missing Karim Benzema, Christopher Nkunku, NGolo Kante, and Paul Pogba due to injury, French are deadly in their attacking third and will look to go deep into the tournament.

Les Bleus play Great Britain, who won their opener against Senegal on Sunday, 3-0, in the quarterfinals on Saturday. Mbappe has already scored a tournament-high five goals in Qatar, while French reached their third consecutive World Cup quarterfinal.

Kylian Mbappes France vs. Italy game, which also saw him break the Peles all-time record for goals at the World Cup with seven.

Openes helped Olivier Giroud pass Thierry Henry as Frances all-time leading goalscorer, but it is the world cup goal from Kylian Mbappe that will become a talking point.

Deschamps will be pleased that after the Polish victory, Kylian Mbappes and Olivier Giroud took much of the plaudits, both for how the story was made from these goals, but also for leading France to the first proper break in Frances campaign.
