France World Cup predicted lineup vs England (4-3-3)
GK: Hugo Lloris – The Frenchman who holds the all-time cap record has played in more Premier League games (more than 100) than Ligue 1 games.
RB: Jules Kounde – Despite coming into the competition as Benjamin Pavard’s understudy, the Barcelona defender has replaced him in the fullback hierarchy.
CB: Raphael Varane – Varane’s senior international career’s lone red card occurred against England in 2017 friendly that France still won.
CB: Dayot Upamecano – A starting spot for the defender who stutters has become available due to the French backline’s constant injuries.
LB: Theo Hernandez – Hernandez made it known that he supported Spain at the senior level as a teenager by skipping training with the French under-21 team. He changed his mind two years later, but he had to wait a further two years before Deschamps gave him his debut.
CM: Antoine Griezmann – Griezmann continues to lead the World Cup in chances created despite being placed in a deeper spot than he often plays (14).
CM: Aurelien Tchouameni – The important Tchouameni has more touches, interceptions, and passes completed than any other French player at this World Cup.
CM: Adrien Rabiot – The Juventus midfielder admitted: “I was lucky to stay, perhaps it was the greatest decision,” when asked why he decided against joining Manchester United in the summer.
RW: Ousmane Dembele – Unfortunately for Dembele, no Leeds United players are included in the England team. Patrick Bamford, a winger for Barcelona, is “a great admirer of Leeds and he watches every game,” according to a request for his jersey. At the very least, Kalvin Phillips will be special to him.
ST: Olivier Giroud – The men’s national team’s all-time leading scorer for France has scored four goals in six games against Jordan Pickford of England, including two goals in five minutes when Arsenal played Sunderland back in 2016.
LW: Kylian Mbappe – Mbappe has either scored or assisted in the creation of all seven of France’s World Cup goals.
