Players to Watch
Tim Cahill and Mile Jedinak scored over 40% of the Socceroos’ goals in qualifying. Cahill may struggle for game time though so the performances of Aaron Mooy and Tom Rogic will be key. France have a frankly awesome array of attacking talent. Antoine Griezmann is the main man up front but he’ll be supported by the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Lemar and Dimitri Payet. The midfield partnership of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante is incredibly solid.
