England are preparing to face the reigning champions in a blockbuster World Cup quarter-final clash.

The Three Lions remain unbeaten in Qatar but face the daunting prospect of needing to stop Kylian Mbappe and co if they’re to continue their journey.

Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka were on target as Gareth Southgate’s side swept aside Senegal to book their place in the last eight, although France will provide a much stiffer test.


Les Bleus also hit three goals in their last-16 win over Poland – Olivier Giroud opening the scoring before Mbappe bagged a brace – and look in decent nick as they bid to become the first nation since Brazil in 1962 to win back-to-back editions of the World Cup.

England v France team news and predicted lineups

Raheem Sterling missed the 3-0 win over Senegal in the last 16 after flying back to England for family reasons, although he is returning to Qatar ahead of this match. Declan Rice is fit to play after illness. Gareth Southgate could be tempted to switch to the three-at-the-back formation that served the Three Lions well at previous tournaments under his management.

Kylian Mbappe trained away from the main group on Tuesday but looks likely to make Didier Deschamps’ team.

England predicted lineup: Pickford; Trippier, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham; Saka, Kane, Foden

France predicted lineup: Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud
