England vs France Preview - WC2022 Quarter-finals

The FIFA World Cup 2022 began on 20 November, and it is slowly but steadily coming to an end. Following the surprising results in the Group Stage, the 16 best countries advanced to the round of 16. Most results weren’t surprising because almost all favourites (except Spain) defeated their opponents and proceeded to the Quarterfinals.

Speaking of the devil, one of the most exciting quarterfinals will put together England vs France. The rivalry between the two has been going on for years because the two teams have met 31 times so far. England has the advantage with 17 wins, and The Three Lions defeated France 2 times at the World Cup in 1966 and 1982.

Despite the stats, France is the current World Cup winner and one of the best teams in the world. Needless to say, this means that the England vs France football history is not that important and won’t have an effect on the two teams. With that said, let’s learn more about them and see what we can expect.

England’s previous result at the World Cup 2022

The Three Lions are among the hidden favourites to win the World Cup. Naturally, they were the big favourites in Group B, where they had to face the USA, Iran, and Wales.

Harry Kane and the rest started the World Cup with an impressive victory against Iran after scoring 6 goals. Following the success, the team got a draw against the USA, which definitely disappointed their fans. Fortunately, England made up to them after defeating Wales 0:3 in its last match.

After the Group Stage ended, England faced Senegal in the round of 16. Although fans expected this to be a tough matchup, Kane and co. had no problems and scored 3 goals. The success meant it was time for the England vs France soccer match.

France’s previous results at the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar

The reigning World Cup champions from 2018 are again the big favourites because the team has some of the best players. Naturally, fans expected Les Bleus to win Group D, where the team had to face Tunisia, Denmark, and Australia.

France had no problem in its first match against Australia after scoring 4 goals. The team also defeated Denmark, but it wasn’t easy this time because the Danish played well. Speaking of not being easy, France lost its last match in the group against Tunisia. Fortunately, France had a better goal difference, allowing it to finish first in Group D.

In the round of 16, Les Bleus faced Poland, a team that barely made it past the groups. Luckily for France, Kylian Mbappé shined bright yet again and played a crucial role in his team’s 3:1 victory. After eliminating Poland, it was time for the England vs France quarter-final.

We’ve already mentioned that the two teams have faced each other a total of 31 times and that England has more victories. However, France will probably be more confident because most of England’s victories occurred before 1950.

According to the stats, the two played against each other 7 times since 2000. Southgate’s team only has one victory, and 2 draws, meaning it lost 4 times against Les Bleus. The England vs France last game was an International friendly and the result ended 2:3 for France, and it took place in 2017.
