World Cup: the program and all the information on the matches of this Saturday


The astonishing Saudi Arabia against Poland, the match of the Blues against Denmark or even the Argentine revenge against Mexico: find the program of the day.

Matches of the day

To get the day off to a good start, at 11 a.m. Tunisia and Australia will face off in a match that could prove decisive for the qualifying places for the Round of 16 in Group D. In the early afternoon, at 2 p.m., in group C, the surprising team from Saudi Arabia, who fell from Argentina (1-2), will have the opportunity to confirm their magnificent start to the World Cup against Poland by Robert Lewandowski, no doubt revenge after his missed penalty against Mexico.

At 5 p.m., in group D, the Blues will be opposed to Denmark and will be able - in the event of victory - to validate their ticket for the rest of the competition.

But beware, the selection of Kasper Hjulmand will be difficult to play, as his two victories against the French team in June and September prove.

Finally, at 8 p.m., in Group C, Lionel Messi's Argentina will want to redeem themselves against Mexico.

A day to follow with attention in short!

Tunisia - Australia:

victory for Tunisia

I think Tunisia are more complete and this game has to end with a win if they want to go through to the round of 16.

Poland win

Poland have better players and they are warned to take their opponent of the day seriously.


France - Denmark:

victory for France

I see a victory for the Blues because I am French.

Everything you need to know about France-Denmark

The news of the Blues

This Saturday afternoon, at 5 p.m., the France team is playing its second match of the group stage against Denmark.

A meeting which could already allow him to validate his ticket for the round of 16 but which promises to be difficult since the Blues remain on two losses against the Red and White.

According to the latest indiscretions, Raphaël Varane should be fit for the match and uncertainty remains for the right-back position between Benjamin Pavard, little to his help against Australia, and Jules Koundé.

Otherwise, Didier Deschamps should not make any other changes.

statement of the day

Present at a press conference on the eve of the second match of the French team against Denmark, Didier Deschamps gave a rather flattering speech on the selection led by Kasper Hjulmand while trying to motivate his players: "

I confirm that it is an undervalued team compared to its real value.

We played them between June and September (2 defeats for the Blues)

, it made us miserable, we want to reverse the trend tomorrow (Saturday).

Not to mention revenge, we all know each other, there was a photograph in June different from September and again from that of Saturday.

The situation of the two teams is not the same (with the injured).

Everything that happened before serves us and the Danes have this ability in all matches to change the system, this can lead to different difficulties

, ”said the coach of the Blues.

Player to watch: Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico)

Decisive last Tuesday against Poland (0-0) by repelling a penalty struck by Robert Lewandowski, Guillermo Ochoa (37) will undoubtedly be one of the men to follow this Saturday.

Faced with Argentinians who should be extremely upset after their disconcerting loss against Saudi Arabia (1-2), the veteran Mexican goalkeeper should be in great demand.

And he will have to be at his best - as he knows so well at the World Cup - to allow his national team to obtain a positive result and thus believe in a qualification for the knockout stages.

Will it meet expectations?

To find out, you will have to watch this tantalizing Argentina-Mexico.

Guillermo Ochoa, one of the leaders of Mexico.

The expression of the day: "Play the watch"

As you can imagine, this expression is relative to time.

A team is said to be "playing for time" when it seeks to slow down the pace of the game in an effort to preserve a favorable outcome.

More often than not, this time-saving results in overreaching on the ground after contacts, excessive delay in playing touches or set pieces or - for formations that can afford it - long possession streaks.

During this 2022 World Cup in Qatar, we have already seen this form of tactics at the end of certain matches.

And we should see it even more with the knockout matches.
