England vs France, FIFA WC 2022 live score updates: FRA and ENG unchanged for quarterfinal Pro Teachs


England vs France (ENG vs FRA) Live Football Score Streaming Online: England’s players have been asked one question over and over again as they prepare to face France in the World Cup quarterfinals on Saturday. How do you stop Kylian Mbappé? Hardly surprising, given Mbappé is the tournament’s leading scorer with five goals and is widely considered the man to succeed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as soccer’s biggest star.

Southgate’s team has played with more freedom at this World Cup, with a more attacking style leading to 12 goals in four games to tie Portugal as leading scorers. Southgate has opted to play with a back four so far, but could switch to a five-man defense to try to cope with Mbappé. England reached the semifinals in 2018, losing 2-1 in extra time to Croatia when trying to protect an early lead.

England also led early in the European Championship final last year, finishing 1-1 with Italy and losing the penalty shootout at home at Wembley Stadium. Again, Southgate was criticized for a too-cautious approach.

Lineups: 

England (4-3-3): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Henderson, Bellingham; Saka, Foden, Kane.

France (4-3-3): Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot, Griezmann; Demble, Mbappe, Giroud.
