Verdict: France Win
Best Odds: 1/4
France will be pleased with the draw, as Les Bleus are not paired with any other European heavyweight. Australia will believe that they have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages ahead of Peru and Denmark. However, this game is a daunting start for the Socceroo’s in Russia.
Didier Deschamps squad of players for this summer’s tournament is arguably the most talented. Talented youngsters like Ousmane Dembele and Thomas Lemar join stars of the European game like Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann in Les Bleus squad.
