France and Poland clash off on Saturday at the Al Thumama Stadium in the Round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Check out here the expected lineups for this match.
On Sunday, December 4, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET, France will face Poland at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha for a place in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Here are the predicted starting lineups for both sides in this Knockout Stage soccer match.
The pair will meet a total of 17 times. Rance is a heavy favorite in the head-to-head matches against the Polish men’s national team, having won eight of the previous nine matches. Five matches were tied.
The last time these two teams met in an international friendly was on June 9, 2011, with Les Blues winning 1-0. When they meet again, it will be in the knockout round of the 2022 World Cup and it promises to be an even more interesting battle than the first time.
France probable lineup
Les Blues coach Didier Deschamps made nine substitutions to his starting XI against Tunisia after an injury-plagued first half of the competition. Aside from when some of those big names came in, the reserves didn’t exactly impress, and Deschamps probably wouldn’t have given any of them a shot at the starting lineup.
France possible starting XI:
Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud.
Poland probable lineup
Poland boss Czeslaw Michniewicz should have his whole squad available to him. In spite of their defeat to Argentina, Poland is still a formidable foe in knockout football because to the likes of Wojciech Szczesny in goal and Robert Lewandowski up forward.
Poland possible starting XI:
Szczesny; Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski; Krychowiak, Bielik; Frankowski, Zielinski, Kaminski; Lewandowski.
