France Vs Poland at the 2022 FIFA World Cup
During the World Cup, France will face Poland in what is a potentially important game. France is one of the favorites to win the competition but Poland is a formidable opponent. Both teams will be looking to prove their worth in front of their home crowds. This game will also serve as a warm-up for the final round of matches, which will take place in Russia on June 15.
Defending champion France is in the Round of 16 against Poland. The match will take place in Qatar’s Al Thumama Stadium. The winner will likely play Senegal in the quarter-finals. The match kicks off at 18:00 local time.
France is a clear favorite. The defending champions are the only side to beat Poland in the last seven matches between the two teams. This was the first time France has qualified for the round of 16 since 2006. The Poles have not won a competitive match against France since a 4-0 friendly win in August 1982.
Poland is a team that has not been particularly impressive in the World Cup. They only advanced into the knockout stages on the back of a goal difference. The Poles did well to draw with Mexico in their opening match. They were out-scored 1-0 in the second period. Then they suffered a 2-0 loss to Argentina in the final group match.
Poland has a strong pedigree. It tied for third place at the 2010 World Cup with a 3-2 win over France. The Polish national team has been led by goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The Polish goalkeeper made 18 saves in the tournament and saved two penalties against Argentina.
France also has a strong pedigree. Didier Deschamps has settled the first team into a world-class unit that has won its last six matches. He rested some of the stars in the opening match against Tunisia. The midfield has been weak, though.
France’s chances of beating Poland in the Round of 16 are slim. France has lost two of its last three games. It has also failed to score in the last two matches. Theo Hernandez is injured in training and could be sidelined.
Wojciech Szczesny made a few big saves in the Group C final match against Argentina. He saved a penalty, and also blocked a penalty that was awarded to Saudi Arabia. He also made an impressive save to keep Argentine star Lionel Messi from scoring a goal.
France has an injury scare ahead of Sunday’s match. Theo Hernandez is injured, and it is unclear if Arkadiusz Milik or Karol Swiderski will take his place.
France coach Didier Deschamps
During his career, Didier Deschamps has won several trophies, including the French national championship, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA World Cup. He has also become the second man to win a World Cup as both a player and as a coach.
Didier Deschamps was born in Bayonne, Pyrenees-Atlantiques. He studied for a Baccalaureate and played football for a number of clubs before joining Olympique de Marseille in 1989. The club was an also-ran in Ligue 1 at the time, but Didier Deschamps led the team to the Champions League final in 2004.
Didier Deschamps began his international career at a young age, when he was recruited by the France youth team as a striker. His tactics were so effective that he became the “water carrier” of the French attack. Didier Deschamps played in several matches for the French national team, including two matches in the Euro 96 tournament. He captained the team to a semi-finals defeat to Italy and to a victory over Portugal in the final.
Didier Deschamps was captain of the France team that won the 1998 World Cup. He also led the team to victory in the Euro 2000 tournament, becoming the second person to captain a team to win the World Cup. Didier Deschamps became the second footballing captain in history to win the World Cup as a player and as a coach.
After retiring as a player, Didier Deschamps returned to France to coach the national team. He took the team to the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup, winning against Uruguay, but losing to Germany. He also led the team to the semifinals of the Euro 2008 tournament, where France lost to Czech Republic on penalties.
Didier Deschamps was voted Ligue 1 manager of the year in 2004. He also took the Marseille team to the quarterfinals of the Champions League in 2012. He led the team to three consecutive Ligue 1 titles between 2010 and 2012. The team won the Cup de la Ligue in 2012 and 2013.
Didier Deschamps has been the France coach since 2012. In addition to his work with the national team, Didier Deschamps also plays for Olympique de Marseille, where he is chairman.
Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz
Defending World Cup champions France will be tasked with defeating Poland in a knockout round match on Sunday. It will be the first time Poland has reached the knockout stages in 36 years. In 1982, Poland was the third best team in Germany. However, Poland failed to qualify for the round of 16 when they played Brazil four years later.
France have not kept a clean sheet in their last 13 matches outside their own country. The team lost to Russia and Scotland in their first two matches. However, France have won six of their last eight matches.
Czeslaw Michniewicz is the new coach of the Polish national football team. He took over from Paulo Sousa in January. He is a strong communicator and prefers a flexible approach. He has a clear vision of the type of football he wants his team to play. Michniewicz also uses opposition analysis to decide on the right formation to play.
Michniewicz will play a back four in his team’s first match against France. However, Michniewicz also has the team play three-two in defence. He has used a variety of formations in his team’s last three games. He said that he likes his team to take the initiative. He warned his players to avoid stupid cards.
Michniewicz also had a few training sessions. His team lost to Argentina in their final group game. During the game, Wojciech Szczesny kept out a penalty from Lionel Messi. He is expected to be Poland’s last line of defence.
The coach said that he has fully fit squad. He is expecting a good performance from Jaroslaw Zalewski, who is named to start for the last four matches. He also expects great things from Robert Lewandowski. He expects Lewandowski to break his World Cup duck. Lewandowski has scored 76 goals for his country. He is also known for his physical play. He has not scored in his country’s first three matches.
The last time Poland reached the knockout round of a World Cup was in 1994 in the United States of America. Poland lost to Brazil in the round of 16.
Defending World Cup champions France take on Poland in the Round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. France and Poland both won their group and have qualified for the knockout stages. The winner of the match will face Senegal in the quarterfinals. The game will be broadcast in Spanish on Telemundo.
France have had a tough start to the tournament, losing 1-0 to Tunisia. France rested star players Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe for the game against Argentina. France will be looking to get back to their winning ways against Poland. The team is physically ready and has gained some valuable rest.
Poland have had a mixed record at the World Cup. They have scored two goals in their three group games and managed to draw three. They have qualified for the tournament through a superior goal difference to Mexico. Their defeat to Argentina came in midweek. Their other two games saw them draw against Australia and Saudi Arabia.
Poland have had no major injury concerns. Czeslaw Michniewicz may opt for a largely unchanged XI. Robert Lewandowski will be hoping to add to his World Cup tally.
Poland are primarily a long-ball team. They have scored their opening goal in five of their last ten games. Poland have won five of their sixteen matches against France.
France are strong favourites to advance. They have already qualified for the knockout stage and are expected to go through. They haven’t been knocked out of a group stage in the last seven years. They will need to improve after their loss to Argentina.
France’s last win against Poland came in June 2011. The team has won eight of its 16 head-to-heads. The Polish squad is still full of players who have been called up to the Poland squad. However, six players could be suspended if they are penalized on Sunday.
France vs Poland will be played at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. The stadium can accommodate 44,400 spectators. It will be broadcast in English on FS1 and in Spanish on Telemundo.
Matchups between the two countries
Defending World Cup champions France will look to put their disappointing loss to Tunisia behind them as they face Poland in the Round of 16. This will be the first time these teams have met in the knockout stage since 2006. Both teams have advanced to the round after losing their final group games, but the two nations will be looking to take advantage of a talented group and break out of their rut.
The defending World Cup champions will look to take advantage of Poland’s shaky offense, as they look to advance to the quarterfinals. Neither team has scored in any of their five games in the World Cup, but France has a chance to score plenty of goals.
France finished the group stage schedule on top of the table in Group D. Despite an early 2-0 loss to Argentina, Poland was able to keep its head above water with a 1-1 draw against Mexico and a 2-0 victory against Saudi Arabia.
France was expected to reinstate Antoine Griezmann, but Didier Deschamps decided to make wholesale changes in the team’s final group game against Tunisia. Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, and Theo Hernandez will all be a threat in the midfield, and Didier Deschamps will be looking for some form from Raphale Varane, who missed the Tunisia game due to a hamstring injury.
Despite Poland’s shaky offensive performances in the tournament, the team finished second in Group C, finishing with four points. They have a talented roster and are well-equipped to take on the defending champions. However, Poland’s defense was a bit shaky in the first two games, allowing Mexico and Argentina to run riot.
Poland hasn’t scored in three games in the tournament, and it will need two big stars to break through against France. Robert Lewandowski is a player who can change a game, but France has too much firepower to let him win it.
France is a heavy favorite in this matchup. Despite being a heavy favorite, Poland has a chance to make things interesting. The game will feature over 2.5 goals.
