In a Group D World Cup qualifier, France take on Ukraine. This high-voltage match will be played on 25th March and is an important game for both teams as an early victory will help both sides gain momentum. World Cup 2022 is just a year ahead and teams have to perform well in the Qualifiers to qualify for the showpiece event.
2018 World Champions France will be in good headspace ahead of their game against Ukraine. This is a qualifier match and a win would propel them to the top of Group D. France last played an international game in November 2020 against Sweden when they defeated them 4-2 in the League of Nations encounter. France do not have tough competition in Group D based on their credentials and should ease their way to a qualification.
Ukraine, on the other hand, are coming on the back off two successive defeats at the League of Nations. They lost to 2014 champions Germany and Switzerland and had to go back to the drawing board to iron out their shortcomings. They face a tough challenge against the Les Bleus and an exciting contest will be on display.
Paul Pogba represented Manchester United recently and he should be back in the national colours too along with fellow Red Devils’ teammate Anthony Martial. Kylian Mbappe will also be back in action for France.
