Fans sing the English national anthem ahead of the France quarter-final

England plays France in a big World Cup quarter-final in Qatar. The Three Lions face their toughest test of the tournament so far against defending champions France after topping Pool B and defeating Senegal in the round of 16 to reach this stage.

Gareth Southgate named an unchanged squad for England’s opener against France in the knockout stages of a major international tournament, with Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden retaining their places in a 4-3-3 system.

The England coach has urged his team to be bold and attack France, which has in Kylian Mbappé the top scorer of this World Cup and perhaps the most dangerous striker in football.

England reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia in 2018, but Southgate believes his team are better poised for success now than they were four years ago. With millions across the country ready to tune in, this could be the night that makes or breaks those hopes.
