France vs Australia live streaming: Match preview

The third day of the World Cup kicks off with the first Group C clash between France and Australia.

The game is sure to be entertaining as overwhelming favourites for both the game and group C.

France have one of the most exciting teams in the tournament filled with flair, fluidity and pace! The Socceroos will be having to fight tooth and nail to keep the Les Bleus at bay.

Fans will also be eagerly waiting to see the lineup of France, a team which has the most question marks over the starting lineup of any of the teams in the tournament.

France tactics

It’s fair to say that the question marks arise due to Didier Deschamps having the most diverse set of tools at his disposal out of all teams at the World Cup.

He is harbouring a weapons factory of guns that are manufactured in all shapes and sizes and equipped to combat any scenario of war. So its not necessarily always a question of who is better but rather who is better suited for this type of game or match moment.

Whilst most of the team is set in paper we will soon see whether Deschamps opts for his trusty, tall lieutenant Giroud or the more exciting and electric Ousmane Dembele.

In midfield the dilemma revolves around the more experienced and defensively tuned Matuidi or the more technically gifted and superior pass master in Tolisso.

Does he opt for a more match fit and in-form player as defensively superior as Lucas or a more natural attacking left back in Mendy who recently returned from a long period out on the sidelines.

The more all-rounded Pavard looking the likely to get the nod over the more natural but attacking Sidibe in current form.

Paul Pogba

French ambitions

France are this years most fearsome counter attacking side along with Brazil. They have the perfect blend of attributes to make opponents think twice before
committing men forward.

France will look to dominate the midfield in what must be the most athletic midfield in the tournament with Pogba, Tolisso and Kante likely to start.

If Australia’s tenacious midfield of Aaron Mooy, Luongo and Rogic resist such attacks, Pogba will look to link up with Tolisso or rifle through a raking a pass for either Mbappe or Demebele to latch onto.

France are also defensively sound at the back with Umtiti and Varane forming one of the best young but experienced centre back partnerships in the world.


Australia are going to have a tough time breaking down France’s midfield and backline.

The Aussies will be seeking inspiration from breakout talent Daniel Arzani who’s silky and rapid feet combined with an eye for a killer pass will prove that they can always be dangerous when going forward.

Bert Van Marwijk will definitely look to utilise their pacy wingers in Leckie and Arzani to attack France’s fullbacks.

If Tom Rogic and his tall frame and strength with fantastic dribbling can avoid the aggressive press of the Les Bleus midfield, France may have problems.

France will also be hesitant to concede set pieces. Aaron Mooy is capable of whipping in fantastic deliveries with a big aggressive Australian team awaiting to pounce.


France’s overall talent may be too much to handle for the Socceroos. But the contest should prove tenacious with two aggressive midfields going at it.

France have built something of a reputation for poor performances in group stages. They have only won three of their last 12 group games (D5 L4) will be looking to change that on Saturday.

Expect no mercy and certainly no retreating from the French.
