England v France LIVE: World Cup 2022 score and updates from quarter-final – Tchouameni goal tonight


England and France fans have friendly game in Qatar ahead of World Cup clash

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

Gareth Southgate has named an unchanged team for England’s first-ever match against France in the knockout stages of a major international tournament, which sees Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden retain their places in a 4-3-3 system.

The England manager has urged his team to be bold and attack France, who have in Kylian Mbappe this World Cup’s leading goalscorer and perhaps the most dangerous forward in football.

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

Harry Kane leads out the Three Lions at the Al Bayt Stadium. England look focused but so do France.

Les Bleus also have Kylian Mbappe on their side who is arguably the best player in the world right now.
