France will be eager to retain their champions tag as they head into the World Cup with an interesting opening match against Australia on Tuesday. The defending world champions have the squad strength required to beat any team on a given day. However, their recent run of results will be a concern for their supporters.

It is safe to say that Didier Deschamps’ side is not in the best of forms lately. They had a forgettable UEFA Nations League campaign in which France narrowly avoided finishing at the bottom of League A Group 1. They could only manage five points from six games to occupy the third spot. Besides, France are heading into this contest on the back of losing their last game against Denmark 2-0. On the other hand, Australia face a difficult challenge in getting out of a group that has France and Denmark. The other opponent Tunisia will neither be an easy game.
