Match five of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia brings us an encounter between a team that is one of the favourites to win the tournament and one team who will want to prove their doubters wrong.
France hoped of breaking their duck of not winning an international trophy since 2000 when they reached the final of UEFA Euro 2016 in their own country. If it wasn’t for an inspired performance by Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal who clinched the trophy, France would have completed their dominance at the tournament.
Coach Didier Deschamps is well aware of the crop of players he has at his disposal with this team. Possessing one of the fiercest attacks, that is backed up with an athletic midfield presence and clinical defending. It seems that the team has polished themselves and cleaned up their act even more for the World Cup.
Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Rafael Varane are some of the superstars the teams possess, and they have an opportunity to show why they’re one of the best teams in the world.
Australia made their way to the World Cup after beating Syria in the play-off encounter.
However, the team has been in good form since then and have got gritty results against tough oppositions.
Their coup of getting Bert van Marwijk after Saudi Arabia ousted him will pay off as with him they have experience manager who knows how to perform in the tournament.
Tim Cahill is making his fifth World Cup appearance, and it will interesting to see how he justifies his selection. Aaron Mooy, Mathew Leckie and Matthew Ryan are some of the rising stars from the country.

*Since this is the fifth game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Australia and for the teams as well, the lineups can have some subtle changes. The predictions will get more accurate as the tournament progresses.
Players to look out for-
The nimble French forward scored 29 goals in 49 appearances for his club Atletico Madrid in 2017/18 season and was also the top scorer of the UEFA Euro Cup 2016 in France. This is yet another opportunity he has to let his talent do the talking.
The Huddersfield man is one of the most creative players in the team, and being in the central midfield he can see passes and runs that might help Australia to score goals on the counter attacks.
