France vs Australia Head-to-Head
Coincidentally, the two teams had previously faced off at the world cup. The result was 2-1 in favor of the eventual winners, which came as a surprise because Australia was not expected to score. However, Australia had also been soundly defeated in the two before meetings, both in 2013; the outcome reflected French dominance (6-0).

Since France has scored three goals or more in four of their last six competitive games (excluding friendlies), Australia has given up eight goals to France in their last two meetings, and Australia has recently struggled against teams ranked higher than them in international friendlies, these three factors point to a France victory with over 2.5 goals.
In their opening World Cup match in Group C, France struggled to a 2-1 victory over Australia as video technology was prominently used for the first time during the competition.
When VAR assisted overturn the referee’s initial ruling regarding a challenge on Antoine Griezmann by Josh Risdon inside the box, Griezmann scored from the resulting penalty kick for France (58).
Mile Jedinak scored from the penalty spot (62) after Samuel Umtiti bizarrely handled inside the box to tie the game.
When Paul Pogba’s deflected shot looped over Mat Ryan and rebounded off the underside of the crossbar, goal-line technology confirmed the ball had crossed the line for an own goal. Despite struggling to break down Australia’s staunch defense, France received a huge slice of luck.
France, one of the pre-tournament favorites, put up a very disappointing showing, managing just two shots on goal, both of which were successful, aside from the first eight minutes.
They came out strong, and Australia goalkeeper Ryan had a difficult first few minutes but maintained his composure.
The Socceroos then came close to scoring as Hugo Lloris made a quick save to stop Corentin Tolisso from putting the ball in his own net. Prior to being given the ideal opportunity to end the tie after the interval thanks to video technology, France withdrew into itself and struggled to create opportunities.
Following Risdon’s challenge on Griezmann, the referee initially continued the play before pointing to the spot after consulting VAR and viewing the replay on the pitchside screen. Griezmann pounced on the chance and slammed the ball into the top corner.

When Umtiti bizarrely handled a free kick in the box, allowing Jedinak to smoothly slide home, Australia tied the score four minutes later. Despite adding Olivier Giroud, France struggled to break through their opponents, but nine minutes from the end, Australia faced another unpleasant situation.
Strong and timed, Aziz Behich’s challenge on Pogba resulted in the ball looping over Ryan and just crossing the goal line as it bounced against the crossbar’s underside. France has done its part, but more can be done.
France National Teams Performance
France currently holds the Nations League championship after defeating Spain in the final, in addition to being the top team in the world now (back in October 2021). On the other side, their Australian opponents did not merely stumble their way to World Cup qualification. Prior to this enormous stage, the Australians were undefeated in seven of their ten qualification games. During this match, France’s depth and Australia’s resistance will be tested.
Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema, and Christopher Nkunku are getting ready to ignite Qatar with their talent and quickness, making France’s front three the best front three to ever compete in a FIFA tournament. Aurelien Tchouameni of Real Madrid and Jules Kounde of Barcelona are two further standout players to watch out for in addition to this fantastic trio.
The 21-year-old Tchouameni, who recently completed a multi-million-dollar transfer to the Champions League champions earlier this summer, is considered the best holding midfielder in the world for his age group. However, Kounde is still a versatile defender who can play anywhere in the back four or back three. As a result, Chelsea FC was willing to spend a fortune to sign him.
Australia National Teams Performance
The world champions will start defending their championship in Group D on the most important stage of them all. Australia will play the current world champions in the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2022, which could be the biggest matchup for the “Continent Down Under” in a long time. Here is France vs Australia FIFA World Cup match prediction, lineups, and head-to-head records that will help our readers to place a bet or Play Fantasy Football during Football World Cup 2022.
For the Australians, the partnership of Harry Souttar and Mitchell Duke will be essential. Souttar and Duke scored a combined eleven goals in the World Cup Qualification (AFC) earlier this year, and with the only way to hurt France is with a goal, they will be eager to board the jet to Qatar. Jackson Irvine is a name that comes to mind instantly when thinking about the players who will aim to give France the least possible advantage. Irvine, the top-rated Australian in the playoffs, averages five successful tackles and two crucial passes for his teammates every game.
