England vs France.
Old rivals England and France square off in the final match of the World Cup quarterfinals. Although they first faced off in 1923, this is only their third meeting at a World Cup and the first since 1982. Although England defeated both of those opponents by two goals, with just one victory in their last eight games, they appear to be in for a tough task.
With Jude Bellingham's performance and Harry Kane's first tournament goal serving as special highlights, the Three Lions overcame a shaky beginning to defeat Senegal 3-0 in the round of 16. Similarities with England's last year's run to the European Championship final, which was supported by a strong defense, were drawn because it was England's third straight clean sheet.
Kylian Mbappé scored a brilliant brace to extend his lead in the Golden Boot standings as France defeated Poland 3-1 to secure their place in the round of 16. As a result, reports that he may be questionable for injury after skipping French training on Tuesday are worrying. However, they have already adjusted to the absence of players like N'golo Kanté, Paul Pogba, and Karim Benzema, among others.
For this prediction: England to win this match or a draw.
