Tournament: FIFA World Cup, group C, 1st round
France (the head coach Didier Deschamps)
The results of the draw procedure of the final tournament XXI of the World Cup have turned out to be absolutely tricky. If in some groups there are two bright favorites, for example, Spain and Portugal (group B), or Belgium and England (group G), then in the third group C with participation of France, Denmark, Australia and Peru, the final champion of the Tri-colours doesn’t raise any doubts. The trio of other participants of the quartet will fight for the second place.
What is the reason of such undoubted advantage of the team of Didier Deschamps? First of all, the presence in the starting lineup of the World champions 1998 the world-class superstars. These are, first of all, players of the midfield Paul Pogba (MU) and Thomas Lemar (Monaco), and, of course, three super forwards – Antoine Griezmann (Atlético Madrid), Kylian Mbappe (PSG) and Ousmane Dembélé (Barcelona). And in such superstar company there was even no place to the center forward of Real Madrid Karim Benzema.
Australia (the head coach Bert van Marwijk)
Undoubtedly, the forward of the Spanish royal club who wasn’t included into Didier Deschamps ‘ bid or another forward of MU Anthony Martial could considerably strengthen each of the rivals of the Tri-colours.
For example, Australia doesn’t have the forwards of such level and gaming class. Still there is fadeless Tim Cahill. But, the goal-scorer who was irreplaceable earlier is 38 year old and we doubt that Tim will be useful to the team at least for 50%.
Of course, for many football fans who don’t follow squad castling during club season at the level of the national teams, the assignment of the famous Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk on a position of the coach became unpleasant surprise. We will remind you that Mr. Bert headed the game of the Oranges at the World Cup in the Republic of South Africa (2010) and during the Polish-Ukrainian EURO (2012). And in frames of the last qualification campaign the Dutch has brought the national team of Saudi Arabia into the final tournament of the FIFA World Cup, Russia.
