Defending champions France are among the top three teams expected to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They have certainly played like defending champions even though a couple of their key players are out injured, which speaks volumes with regard to the amount of great talent that France possesses.

England have flattered to deceive on many occasions during the previous World Cup but this English team looks determined to succeed.

They face their toughest test at the 2022 FIFA World Cup when they take on France in the fourth quarter-final that takes place on Dec 11 at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor.

England also have their fair share of talent and have looked great in Qatar as they are finally playing as a team and not just depending on Harry Kane to score and get them over.

We expect this to be a closely contested game just like the FIFA World Cup betting odds suggest.

England vs France Match Odds – FIFA World Cup 2022

Team Odds On 22Bet
England  3.00
France  2.40

France and England have been rather dominant at the World Cup which is why the betting odds are so close.

The defending champs have the edge in this game and our experts agree with the odds makers as we feel France will play better under pressure compared to England.

France vs England Prediction

If you go back nearly 100 years, you will find England have a decent record against France winning 17 out of their 31 international games. However, if you take a look at recent history, it favors Les Bleus.

The teams have played each other only 11 times in the last thirty years with France winning 5 times and England winning just twice. France has won their last two World Cup games and will go in full of confidence.

Recommended Betting Tip: France (2.40)

England vs France – Team Performance In Qatar  

France dominated Australia in their opening game to win 4-1 and followed that up with a 2-1 win over Denmark.

The defending champs then suffered a shock defeat going down 0-1 to Tunisia. They bounced back well in the round of 16 beating Poland 3-1.

England have looked in fantastic form beating Iran 6-2 to start their world cup campaign.

They had a goalless draw against the United States but went back to scoring by beating Wales 3-0 to get to the round of 16. They trounced Senegal 3-0 to advance to the quarter-finals.

England vs France Match Betting Options

Gareth Southgate must get a lot of credit for taking chances with this England squad and making some bold picks that are paying off quite well for England.

England selected a number of young players including Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka who have shown they deserve to play at the highest level. If you do not know how to bet on FIFA World Cup, we have it covered.

The Three Lions look like they could beat any team as they have adopted an attacking mindset and have the players to execute their game plan really well.

England are unlikely to change that strategy against France as they will once again look to Harry Kane and young Bukayo Saka to score against France early on.

All Eyes On Kylian Mbappe

France are without two of their top stars in Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba but they haven’t missed a beat because of their reserve talent.

France has taken a few risks in previous games slacking up a bit on the defense and pushing forward with an attacking strategy which has paid off with Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe scoring for them.

They will have to change that strategy when they face England as they need to be a lot more robust in defense. They will need Antoine Griezemann to control the mid-field and create those chances for Giroud and Mbappe.

We expect both goalkeepers to be tested in this quarter-final and we think France’s Hugo Lloris might have a slight edge over England’s Jordan Pickford.

England vs France Top Goal Scorers Betting

Kylian Mbappe currently tops the list of top goal-scorers in Qatar with 5 goals. He is going to be hard to stop as he has tremendous speed, great control, and precision striking. Olivier Giroud is not far behind with 3 goals to his name.

England have scored more goals than France at this stage of the World Cup and have had multiple players contribute with goals.

Leading the list for England are Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford with 3 goals each. You can never overlook Harry Kane who ended up winning the 2018 Golden Boot award and he is definitely one to watch out for as he loves to score in big games.

Recommended Betting Tip: Bukayo Saka or Kylian Mbappe.

England vs France Squads
