France vs Argentina: 3 changes Didier Deschamps should make

France vs Argentina: 3 changes Didier Deschamps should make

Remarkably, Gonzalo Higuain has not scored in his last eight matches for Argentina.Another aspect of the game will be France's capacity to prevent Messi from being fed by the opposing midfield, notably Ever Banega.

Samuel Umtiti is also a team-mate of Messi's at Barcelona and his knowledge may prove useful.

Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Benjamin Mendy, who will be in opposite camps, are set to miss out on the starting XIs when France face Argentina at the World Cup today.

For Argentina, the man to watch is once again Lionel Messi.

But with Portuguese rival Cristiano Ronaldo racing ahead in the scoring charts on four goals so far, and England's Harry Kane on five goals in just two matches, Messi risks finishing this World Cup with a whimper. "He knows all the passion I put into everything I do", Sampaoli said.

Sampaoli has found himself under the spotlight following the opening 1-1 draw against Iceland and a 3-0 defeat by Croatia in Nizhny Novgorod.

"Now, I see him a lot more comfortable now".

"Kylian has huge quality and potential, he's fast, explosive, he needs space and I think tomorrow he will get more than he did in the first three matches", added Lloris. On both cases, Argentina reached the Finals.

The FIFA World Cup 2018 France vs Argentina Round of 16 match will take place on June 30, 2018. The last time these two sides met was in 2009 in an global friendly which Messi and co had won 2-0.

Di Maria is yet to score in Russian Federation but does have 19 worldwide goals. He's yet to register a shot on target at this year's World Cup, having spent 200 minutes on the pitch.

Now, the Soccerbot has digested the film, crunched the numbers and broken down every single player on France and Argentina.

Mbappe, 19, scored France's victor as they beat Peru 1-0 on June 21 in Yekaterinburg. "We have the best player on earth, but we have others who can make things hard for them too".

"We have two completely different styles but I have faith we will impose our own style and dictate the pace and rhythm of the game".

The coach said France's characteristics of quick ball recovery and pace on the break through Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud would make them particularly risky if Argentina were unable to dominate possession.
