Match Preview :

France vs Australia match is going to be held on 16-th June at Kazan Arena (Kazan)

This is first match of world cup 2018 because of that both team have to show us their best skills, combinations, tactics to start group stage successfully.

Didier Deschamps has had the luxury of choosing from a pool of highly talented names. Once again, the manager has favoured discipline over talent and this has led to the absence of Karim Benzema from the 23-man squad. The French squad has a strong mix of youth and experience. Deschamps also has one of the most valuable squads due to the presence of Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe.

After a lot of discussions about Tim Cahill’s presence in the World Cup squad, coach van Marwijk has decided to go with the experienced midfielder. Cahill received very little game-time at Millwall and the 38-year-old may not feature much at the World Cup. Still, his presence gives a huge deal of experience to the Australian setup. Forwards like Jamie MacLaren and Dimitri Petratos have shown an eye for goal in their domestic careers.

The Favorite Team is France, But Australia will try to take minimum one point or win the match.
