FIFA World Cup 2022 quarter-final match between the defending champion France and England has become more interesting due to the strong position of both teams.
Here’s a quick comparison between the important players of both the teams
• France will take on England in the World Cup quarter-final match on Saturday at the Al Bayt Stadium
• France is relying on Kylian Mbappe and England is betting on Kyle Walker
How Will England Defend Its Goalpost From Kylian Mbappe’s Attacks?
Kylian Mbappe is the fastest forward in the world and the top scorer with five goals in the World Cup. France is relying on Kylian Mbappe’s speed to breach the defensive line of the English football team. Kyle Walker could defend England against Mbappe but Walker is still recovering from a recent injury. In a recent match against Poland, Kylian Mbappe scored three goals at a speed of 35.3 kmph.
Who Is The Key Player for England?
Harry Kane could rescue England with his ability to drop the ball deep between French midfield and make the defense lines to get into the ball. Also, he is capable of possessing and passing the ball to players like Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden, and Jude Bellingham who can score goals. Kane has a great run time inside the box where he can threaten the French goal. France can use its defensive midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni to counter Kane’s attack.
Who Are The Other Key Players?
Antoine Griezmann with the most key passes (14) has emerged as France’s most reliable midfield in this World Cup. While England sees no threat from Griezmann, he can be a big creative for the defending champion.
Declan Rice has the credit for the most interceptions (8) in the World Cup so far. This English player has the ability to keep the ball away from French players.
