Unlucky for England, because Maguire deflects the ball slightly.

Dembélé brings the ball in the middle, where Giroud takes the Ballm directly from a few meters.

First report from December 10:

al-Khour – The fourth and final quarter-finals of the Qatar World Cup will see a showdown between two major European football nations.

The Paris Saint-Germain star will also play against England from the start.

Mbappé has already scored five goals and two assists in the current tournament in Qatar, and further goals could follow in the quarter-finals.

Kyle Walker, who will probably be Mbappé's direct opponent on Saturday night, said he would "not roll out the red carpet" for the goalscorer.

The Manchester City defender insisted it was his job to "stop him", adding: "I've played against him many times.

I will show him respect, but not too much.”
