Despite being regarded as hot favourites to win EURO 2016, France eventually suffered a loss to Portugal in the final of the tournament in their homeland. A man to watch in Didier Deschamps team will be Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann, who helped los Rojiblancos beat Olympique Marseille in the Europa League final.

Correct score prediction: France 3-0 Australia

Expert Verdict: France are big favourites to top Group C and start their 2018 World Cup campaign against an Australian side who needed the play-offs to get through to Russia. New manager Bert van Marwijk has overseen a turnaround in Australia's recent form with back-to-back wins in their two friendlies this month, but it is difficult to see them stopping a France team who have scored 17 goals in their last eight matches.

They won all five games against Australia at home last summer, including smashing their own world record when they posted 483/6 at Trent Bridge. It followed a 4-1 series win in Australia in their previous series against their old enemy too. Australia beat England in one of the warm-up matches for this tournament, but in official ODIs England have been dominant in this fixture recently.

This squad has plenty of top-class players in the team, all of whom seem capable of winning the games on their own. Of course, the manager isnt the only person responsible for their good performances. He led this team to the quarter-final of the World Cup 2014 and the final of Euro 2016. First of all, Didier Deschamps became their manager in 2012. But, the times have changed quite a lot since.

But, even that didnt mean that their job was done. Australias road to the World Cup was a pretty complicated one. They then had to play the International Playoffs, in which they drew Honduras. After finishing on the 3rdspot in the Group B of the World Cup Asia Qualification campaign, they had to take on Syria in the playoffs.

Paul Pogba is their key man in midfield, meanwhile and the 89m midfielder has a point to prove after a hit-and-miss season with Manchester United. France football team is blessed with some of the best upcoming attacking talent in world football, with Kyllian Mbappe scoring in their most recent friendly, and Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann finding the net in the win against Italy before that.

Aaron Mooy pulls the strings in the middle for Australia, with the Huddersfield man heading to the World Cup on the back of a leading role in the Terriers Premier League survival last season. In goal, Matthew Ryan enjoyed a good first season in the Premier League with Brighton, and he is likely to be very busy with Frances attacking talent on Saturday. Mathew Leckie scored twice in the win against the Czech Republic, meanwhile.
