Despite being regarded as hot favourites to win EURO 2016, France eventually suffered a loss to Portugal in the final of the tournament in their homeland. Didier Deschamps, though, remained in charge of the French national team and the experienced tactician and his men certainly want to go all the way at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. France kick off their World Cup campaign with a match against Australia and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game against the Socceroos. The Australians will, as always, rely on veteran Tim Cahill against France, but seeing that the Socceroos failed to impress in the qualifiers, we predict les Tricolores will emerge triumphant in their World Cup opener. A man to watch in Didier Deschamps’ team will be Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann, who helped los Rojiblancos beat Olympique Marseille in the Europa League final.
