France vs United States

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium – Stade des Lumières

Date: 9th June 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

France have had one of the best warm up campaigns of all the teams heading for the World Cup in Russia.

They began their preparations for the World Cup by beating Ireland 2-0 and followed that up with a more impressive 3-1 win over Italy.

This game offers them the chance to get another win and showcase just how good they are on the attack.

The United States will not be at the World Cup after their poor qualifying campaign saw them miss out on qualification.

They have begun a new era under the leadership of Dave Sarachan. His youthful team beat Bolivia 3-0 recently before losing 2-1 to Ireland.

If the USA had come into this game off the back of their 3-0 win, they would have been confident of getting a win, however, they now face a huge task in getting a result here.

With the USA struggling at the back, it is hard to see how they can stop this French team that is fast, direct, and devastating on the attack.

The USA are struggling to shutout teams when they play away from home, as they have conceded in each of their last four away games.

The USA drew their last away game 1-1 against Portugal, but that was mostly because the Portuguese failed to take their chances and they cannot afford to give as many chances away in this game.

These teams have met just once before now when the French side beat USA 1-0.
