France wants the plenary session and Tunisia dreams of a miracle

The Frenchmen, already classified, do not want erasures on their World Cup resume against a Tunisian team that is looking for its first eighth


The French team faces Tunisia this Wednesday (4:00 p.m.) on the third and final date of Group D of the World Cup in Qatar, in which they hope to close their participation in this first phase without blurs before the round of 16, the tie that the Tunisians want, since who have never advanced from the group stage, although they presumably need a miracle in the form of a carom of results.

Didier Deschamps' men have proven to be one of the most consistent and reliable teams so far in the tournament. It is one of the three teams -along with Brazil and Portugal- that at the end of the second day was able to celebrate their pass to the round of 16, with great solvency and an attack that 'intimidates', due to the many possible variants despite the casualties.

This wide wardrobe will allow the French coach to introduce some changes in his 'eleven' to face Tunisia, as he advanced in the previous one. "I'm going to have to manage the squad, I have many things to take into account. I have a little more time to make my decision, but yes, there will be changes. I won't say how many," Deschamps said at a press conference before the possibility of managing the minutes in a game that has something 'inconsequential'.

With six points thanks to their solvent victories against Australia (4-1) and Denmark (2-1), the 'Roosters' have virtually secured first place -only a massive victory for Australia would prevent them from finishing as leader, if they lose-, also leaving behind the curse that has haunted the last three world champions. Thus, Matteo Guendouzi and Youssouf Fofana could replace Aurelien Tchouameni and Adrien Rabiot, starters in the first two games.

This could cause Deschamps to reinforce the midfield with a third man, playing with three attackers, with the question of whether Kylian Mbappé, the current top scorer in the tournament with three goals and one assist, will enter that rotation and if he keeps a Antoine Griezmann plugged in and an Olivier Giroud who is one target away -he has 51- from becoming the top scorer in the history of the French team.

However, the objective will be not to abandon his direct and convincing, although not exciting, style. And it is that surprisingly, Deschamps has managed to put together a very solid block despite setbacks in the form of injuries, giving Griezmann prominence in creation, with Mbappé thrown to the left who manages most of the attacks and a lethal finisher like Giroud .

The 'affordable' duel against Tunisia would also allow us to see new pieces in the defense, where there have already been changes in the first two games. Theo Hernández, destined to start the remainder of the tournament, could rest, while Axel Disasi, Ibrahima Konaté and William Saliba await their turn.

The 'Águilas de Cartago' were one of the surprises at the start of the World Cup, scratching an exciting point in their debut (0-0) against 'covered' Denmark. However, their attractive, courageous and unapologetic football did not appear against Australia on matchday two, losing 1-0 and making life difficult for their group. Without any goals for and one against, their dream of advancing to the quarterfinals for the first time in what is their sixth World Cup participation seems more than complicated.

The urgent need for crosses forces the Tunisians, last with one point, to beat the current champion and hope for a draw between Australia and Denmark -second with 3 and fourth with 1, respectively-, or a victory for the Danes over the oceanic, according to which they would need a more comfortable win against France than this.

Something complicated, since his last victory by two or more goals in a World Cup came in his first game in the tournament (3-1 against Mexico in Argentina 1978). In addition to a very negative balance in direct confrontations with the French, with two draws and one defeat.

TÚNEZ: Dahmen; Bronn, Meriah, Talbi; Grager, Shkiri, Laïdouni, Abdi; Sliti, Jebali and Msakni.

FRANCIA: Lloris; Pavard, Konate, Saliba, Theo; Fofana, Guendouzi, Rabiot; Mbappé, Giroud and Griezmann.

--REFEREE: Matthew Conger (NZL)

   --ESTADIO: Education City Stadium.

--TIME: World Goal and Movistar.
