World Cup: the Blues opposed to Poland in the round of 16


The Blues will be opposed to the Poles on the road to the quarter-finals on Sunday (4 p.m.) in Doha. Robert Lewandowski and his partners are ahead

We know the opponent.

France will face Poland in the round of 16 of the World Cup on Sunday at 4 p.m. at Al-Thumama Stadium.

The Blues, first in their group despite their defeat (0-1) against Tunisia on Wednesday afternoon, will be opposed to the Polish selection, second in their Pool C after a suspenseful evening.

Robert Lewandowski and his partners, dominated by Argentina (2-0), are ahead of Mexico, winners of the Saudis (2-1), thanks to a better goal average (+1 against zero).

Poland had held these Mexicans in check (0-0) for their entry into the World Cup before winning against Saudi Arabia (2-0), then suffering the law of the Argentines, ultra-dominators on Wednesday evening .

The Poles pass thanks to this goal ahead of "El Tri", even if they were a time virtually qualified according to the fair play classification, ahead of Mexico thanks to a lower number of yellow cards received in the competition .

But the Saudi goal in stoppage time ruled out this cruel hypothesis for the Mexicans, absent from the round of 16 for the first time since 1990.

Only one match in the World Cup

France and Poland have faced each other only once in the World Cup, during a match for third place lost by the Blues (3-2) at the 1982 World Cup. The two nations have not crossed paths since a friendly in 2011, won by the tricolor outside (1-0).

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