The 2018 FIFA World Cup is right around the corner, and for some, that’s an exciting prospect. For others, it serves as a reminder that they were unable to qualify for the tournament. That’s the situation we find ourselves in with this friendly as France prepare for a summer full of potential, whereas the United States are still having to lick their wounds following their poor qualification period.

France

Les Bleus are being viewed as one of the leading contenders to lift the World Cup trophy next month, and there’s a reason for that. They have one of the scariest squads throughout the entire tournament, and they seem to be picking up momentum at just the right time. They’ve been through a lot over the course of the last few years, but now, it’s starting to feel like everything is falling into place for them.

Team News

France are expected to give some fringe players a run-out in this game.

United States

The US have been ever-present at the last few World Cup tournaments, but in 2018, they’ll be forced to sit on the sidelines and reflect on what went wrong throughout qualification. They’ve already begun the rebuilding period which is the best thing they could do at this stage, and they seem to be bringing through a series of intriguing youngsters as their attention turns to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Team News

Timothy Weah could start against the nation where he plays his domestic football.

Factors to Consider

  • France have won all three meetings between these two nations with an aggregate score of 10-0.
  • This is the United States’ last game before taking on Mexico in September.
  • France’s World Cup group includes Denmark, Australia & Peru.
  • The US are coming off of a 2-1 loss to Ireland.
  • France are on a three-game winning streak.

Conclusion

While France may be prioritising fitness over a result in this one, we still can’t see a scenario in which the US come away with a positive result. It’ll be close, but we’re predicting a narrow 2-1 victory for the hosts as they prepare for a big summer in Russia.
