While France have the outstanding Kylian Mbappe who is the 2022 World Cup top scorer, England have Jude Bellingham. The nineteen-year-old has been a revelation for the Three Lions at this tournament and his performance made all the difference as Gareth Southgate’s side were able to put Senegal to the sword on Sunday night, with Les Bleus now lying in wait.

It's possible that England will name an unchanged team for this clash, with the midfield triumvirate of Bellingham, Declan Rice and Jordan Henderson operating well in tandem, while Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka offer a threat out wide and Harry Kane is having a typically assured tournament.

However, it remains to be seen whether England can stop France in their tracks, with Kyle Walker likely to have a difficult job against Kylian Mbappe. The Paris Saint-Germain forward has already bagged five goals and it will be interesting to see what plans are afoot to stop the danger man for the World Cup holders.

We would well see a tight game between two evenly-matched teams and perhaps this could be a draw where we see extra-time and potentially penalties in this clash. There is going to be a lot of fear when it comes to conceding the first goal, with the French defence having conceded in every game of the World Cup thus far.
