World Cup: Blues against Poland in the 1/8 finals

We know the opponent. France will play Poland in the 1/8 finals of the World Cup on Sunday at 16:00 at Al-Tumama Stadium. The Blues, top of their group despite a 1-0 loss to Tunisia on Wednesday afternoon, will face the Polish selection as they finish second in their Group C after a busy evening. Robert Lewandowski and his Argentina-dominated partners (2-0) are ahead of Mexico, who defeated the Saudis (2-1), thanks to a better goal average (+1 vs. zero).

Poland kept these Mexicans under control (0-0) for their participation in the World Cup before defeating Saudi Arabia (2-0) and then suffering from the law of the Argentine ultra-dominators on Wednesday night. The Poles are ahead of El Tri by this goal, even if they once practically qualified in the fair play classification, ahead of Mexico thanks to fewer yellow cards received in the competition. But a stoppage-time goal by Saudi Arabia ruled out that cruel hypothesis for the Mexicans, missing from the round of 16 for the first time since 1990.

Only one match in the World Cup

France and Poland have met each other only once in the World Cup, during the match for third place lost to the Blues (3:2) in the 1982 World Cup. The paths of the two countries have not crossed since the 2011 friendly match in which they won blue.” tricolor outside (1-0).

Argentina, first in the group, will play Australia, second in Group D against the Blues thanks to the Australian victory over the Danes (1-0) earlier in the day.
