England Squad and Line-up Against France In Quarter-Final Match

England is predicted to play in a 4-3-3 formation against France in the next match.

England’s strikers are doing their job well and almost everyone has scored a goal in this world cup. Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka, and Sterling scored goals in this tournament while Foden have provided 2 assists. Their communication with each other is also perfect but we have to take 1 from Foden and Sterling in the forward position, it will be a difficult decision for Southgate.

Henderson scored a starting goal against Senegal while Rice and Bellingum have also shown their importance in the England squad to Southgate. While Harry Maguire, Kyle Walker, Shaw, and Stones have also given their best in this tournament. We may see a little change in the England squad but overall we won’t see any major change here. I Hope Raheem Sterling will return to the squad soon but I don’t think he may play the quarterfinal match for England let’s see what happens.

England’s team seems to be perfect and complete and has the guts and confidence to beat defending champion France in the world cup 2022 quarter-finals.

England’s Predicted Line-up

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford

Defenders: Harry Maguire, Shaw, Kyle Walker, Stones

Midfielders: Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Jordan Henderson

Forwards: Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford

France Squad and Line-up Against England In Quarter-Final Match

France is predicted to play in a 4-2-3-1 Formation against England.

France’s current squad is one of the best squads in the world cup 2022. They broke the curse of a champion which they started and qualified for round-of-16 and quarter-finals. France defeated Poland and scored 3 goals against them and conceded only one goal which shows the strength of the team.

Kylian Mbappe scored 2 goals against Poland and became the most goal scored in the FIFA world cup 2022. While France’s main striker Giroud also scored a goal against Poland and became the leading goal scorer of France’s team. While Osman Dembele and Griezmann have given a lot of contributions in all their matches in this world cup. The French forward line seems to be perfect and we need no other change here.

The French team’s midfield and defense are also strong and promising which defeated Denmark, Australia, and Poland in this tournament.

The French squad has the pace of Mbappe, the Passing and perfection of Griezmann, the cross passes, and the assist of Dembele what more does a team need, they have everything.

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris

Defenders: Theo Hernandez, Dayot Upamecano, Raphael Varane, Jules Kounde

England vs France Quarter Final Match Prediction

If we see their past records and stats we realize England is in a strong position, England has defeated France 17 times and France has just defeated England 9 times. The prediction of this match is really very difficult and both teams are at their peak.

But My prediction is that France will win this match they have a powerful and strong squad compared to England. I predicted in one of my blogs that England might win the world cup and I wasn’t considering France because of the Champions curse before starting this world cup. But after watching a round of 16 and group stage matches I believe France’s team to be stronger than England and they will qualify for the semi-finals.

The score may be England 1-2 France
