France set to start strong XI in World Cup opener

France set to start strong XI in World Cup opener

Kylian Mbappe was injured in training ground on Tuesday handing France a massive scare ahead of World Cup tournament.

France's Kylian Mbappe celebrates scoring their first goal against US during their worldwide friendly at Groupama Stadium, Lyon, France, June 9, 2018.

Pogba, Matuidi and N'Golo Kante form a formidable three-man midfield, with Corentin Tolisso keeping them on their toes, ensuring there is a quality replacement waiting should there be any dip in performances.

The Australians aren't promising to play champagne football, but are focusing on an efficient game that could help it challenge France and avoid a morale-crushing heavy loss.

"We have young team, yes, but if you look at it, you see we play at Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Juventus, Manchester". Additionally, France has real firepower in their lineup. Even the friendly with Ireland last month gave a hint of that: their 2-0 win against a weakened Ireland XI was their only clean sheet from the last six games, this against an Ireland outfit who, bar a shot from Shaun Williams late on, didn't mount a single attack or shot on target. Peru has very few, if any, known players.

These common prescriptions come with a deadly side effect
Some of the medication on the list are well known for their depression-like side effects, such as beta-blockers and interferon. The study found that using multiple medications increased the risk of experiencing depression further.

But like the slogan imprinted inside their jersey - "nos differences nous unissent" or "our differences unite us" - it appears they have moved on from the team mutiny and boycott in 2010. However, they crashed out in the group stage and the situation was worsened by a player revolt and naming of "traitors" within the team. Tottenham's Christian Eriksen scored 11 of Denmark's 25 goals in qualifying, including a hat trick in the 5-1 win over Ireland in the UEFA playoffs. United legend Paul Scholes routinely slammed Pogba last season for his inconsistent performances and tendency to showboat on the pitch. With Eriksen on the ball, great things can happen.

When is World Cup 2018 France vs Australia match? The team, led by captain Patrice Evra, responded to Anelka's expulsion by staging a one-day strike.

France had entered 2010 edition with huge expectations following their run to the final in Germany four years before.

But that could not have been further from the truth - alongside the Brazil talisman, Mbappe picked up from where he left off in the previous campaign, won another championship with his new club and, while playing mostly as a winger to accommodate Edinson Cavani in a central striker role, managed 21 goals in 46 matches in all competitions.
