England vs France live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 quarterfinal match

- Advertisement -

England and France have arguably been the two best teams so far at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but the bracket has them meeting in the marquee quarterfinal match in Qatar. The nation that advances will likely earn the title of favorite to win the competition after Brazil’s ouster in this round.

The England versus France showdown is deserving of being a final in Qatar, with both teams finishing top of their respective groups and dismissing their Round of 16 opposition with relative ease. The winner faces Morocco or Portugal in the semis.

Despite several injuries to key starters, France have played like the defending champions they are, powered by inspired tournament top scorer Kylian Mbappe and an in-form Olivier Giroud. Meanwhile, England have looked as solid as ever with midfielder Jude Bellingham looking every bit like he might be the team’s missing piece after their semifinal run four years ago. 

It’s a match many are looking forward to partly because it’s been a long time coming. The two European powers haven’t met since 2017 and their last competitive match in tournament play came a decade ago in 2012.

England vs France live updates, highlights from 2022 World Cup

4 hrs 45 mins from kickoff: You can only wonder how much bulletin board material Kyle Walker gave Kylian Mbappe from this one video clip. How about: “[Mbappe] is not going to stand in my way in hopefully winning a World Cup for my country.”

But what might really set off Kylian is the question about who’s quicker. Walker’s response was: “Who knows?”

5 hrs from kickoff: It’s The Sun taunting the French right in Paris with their trademark headlines like “It’s Gaul Over”:

5hrs from kickoff: But The Sun have left their best work for the front page of the newspaper back home, which needed this picture of a piece of toast to really hit home. They should go easier on the butter.

5 hrs from kickoff: Gary Neville with the interesting tactical breakdown of England vs France, particularly the box we’ll likely see from England around Kylian Mbappe:

5 hrs from kickoff: While both teams will look different from their last friendly meeting in June 2017, there’s one thing that will be the same. Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele will likely be seeking to wreak havoc once more.

England vs France lineups, team news

With every player available, all indications from the English media is that manager Gareth Southgate is expected to name an unchanged lienup from the one that handled Senegal 3-0.

That would mean sticking with a four-man backline to go up against France’s dangerous front four. There was speculation that the Three Lions could be better off with another centre-back to face France’s vaunted attacking line, but that would not seem to be an option under consideration.  

England (4-3-3 right to left): 1. Pickford (GK) — 2. Walker, 5. Stones, 6. Maguire, 3. Shaw — 8. Henderson, 4. Rice, 22. Bellingham — 17. Saka, 9. Kane, 20. Foden

Multiple reports in France say that manager Didier Deschamps will also be repeating the lineup that beat Poland 3-1 in the Round of 16. It aligns with how he managed the squad en route to the title in 2018, sticking to a mix of players that is seemingly working well together. 

France lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1. Lloris (GK) — 5. Kounde, 4. Varane, 18. Upamecano, 22. T. Hernandez — 8. Tchouameni, 14. Rabiot — 11. Dembele, 7. Griezmann, 10. Mbappe — 9. Giroud
