World Cup 2022 has prepared for the audience a confrontation that is worthy of the final. But Qatar decided to reduce these teams to 1/4. The national team of France and England will decide in their match who will still reach the semi-finals, and who will finish their fight for the World Cup Cup. At World Cup 2022 matches with this heading, they usually end up rather dryly. We hope that the coaches of these teams will be able to set the players a task that will bring us a scoring confrontation.
How was stage 1/8 for the British
England met in their first play-off match against Senegal. As expected, the British were able to easily move the team from Africa. In addition to a great game, Gareth Southgate was able to show that his team can score a lot and confidently. We hope this trend will continue until the end.
Harry Kane is the hero of the match. He was able to help his team win really confidently and he holds this championship very well. His teammates didn’t disappoint either.
France team in the 1/8 World Cup
The tricolor team met with the Poles in the 1/8 stage of the playoffs. The first matches showed the audience that these are the same Frenchmen who once managed to win the World Cup. Even despite the injuries of key players who have made a huge contribution to the victory in the past Fifa World Cup. The French team was able to win the Poles with a score of 3-1.
Another excellent match was played by Kylian Mbappe. It is unlikely that anyone will be able to stop this machine for heads. At his fairly young age, this player has become a key link in the game of the French.
Coaching setup: what did the coaches of the national teams prepare
The French are represented in the coaching chair by Didier Deschamps and the English by Gareth Southgate. Excellent tactics that brought their teams to the quarterfinal stage of the playoffs. For them, this championship is going well, as each of them was able to choose exactly the kind of game with which the teams feel comfortable. What to expect in this match?
Most likely, the British will give the ball to the French and I will try to make my game on sharp counterattacks. The England team in this match must remember one thing - the French have Kylian Mbappe and he must be restrained. Gareth Southgate has Kyle Walker on his team, and this player is not only a great defender, but also fast enough to counter Mbappe.
