It would be fair to say that Didier Deschamps’ side have not been in the best of form in recent times. They had a forgettable UEFA Nations League campaign in which France survived by finishing bottom of Ligue A Group 1. They could only manage five points from six games to occupy the third spot. Furthermore, France are heading into this competition after losing their last game against Denmark 2–0. On the other hand, Australia have a tough challenge in front of them being out of the group with France and Denmark. Other rivals Tunisia will not be an easy game.
