England Vs France LIVE: World Cup 2022 Starting Lineup, Team News And Buildup To Crunch Quarterfinal

England face France in a massive World Cup quarter-final tonight in Qatar. The Three Lions will face their toughest test of the tournament against holders France after topping Group B and beating Senegal in the round of 16 to reach this stage.

Gareth Southgate is expected to field an unchanged squad for England's first play-off against France in a major international tournament, with Bukayo Sakho and Phil Foden retaining their places in a 4-3-3 formation.

The England manager has urged his team to show courage and attack against France, which has Kylian Mbappe as the top scorer in the World Cup and the most dangerous striker in football.

England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but Southgate believes his side are now better equipped for success than they were four years ago. With millions of viewers across the country watching, tonight could be the night that makes or breaks those expectations.
