France vs Australia match preview

Both teams get their first hit out for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Australia has most recently won 2 friendlies against New Zealand as part of 5 wins on the trot.

One of those wins was the unforgettable penalty shootout against Peru, which booked their World Cup spot.

But except for Peru, these victories were all against sides ranked lower than them and outside of the top 70.

Australia vs France

France's last 5 internationals were as part of the UEFA Nations League against Austria, Croatia and Denmark – all teams in the top 40.

France could only notch up 1 win against Austria though, losing 2 others and drawing 2.

But there's a reason France are the defending champions and they always rise to the occasion, so expect them to stamp their authority on Australia.
