A draw secures first place

If the first place is not officially assured for the Blues, it is on the right track.

Indeed, to let the head of the group escape, and therefore slip into second place, it would be necessary to witness an improbable scenario.

To do this, the team of Didier Deschamps should then lose against Tunisia and by a significant gap.

At the same time, Australia should win against Denmark by scoring as many goals as possible.

The French team has six points in two games and a goal difference of +4 (six goals scored, two goals conceded).

Australia, second in the group, has a negative goal difference (-2).

One could then imagine that the Blues lost 3-0 against Tunisia and that Australia won 4-0 against Denmark.

A scenario that seems unlikely.

If it does indeed finish first in Group D, the France team will then play its round of 16 on Sunday at 16, against the second in Group C. Otherwise, Hugo Lloris' partners will be back on the field on Saturday. at 8 p.m., facing the leader of group C.
