Didier Deschamps’ quest for European Championship glory can move one step closer when they face off against Poland in their final group game.

Les Bleus have only failed to make it out of the group stages in just one of their previous six appearances at the European Championships, when they finished bottom of a group that consisted of Italy, the Netherlands and Romania in 2008 and will be confident of putting their 2022 World Cup final defeat firmly behind them with glory in Germany.

They face a Poland side who they are unbeaten against in the last eight head-to-head meetings (W4 D4), inlcuding a 3-1 victory in the last 16 in Qatar on their way to the final. Poland won’t be any pushover however, and will be hoping to secure just their second ever knockout round appearance at the tournament after reaching the quarter-finals in 2016.

France Latest Team News

Lucas Hernandez misses the tournament after tearing his ACL, so a place at CB has opened up with William Saliba, Ibahima Konate and Dayot Upamecano all fighting for two spots, with Jules Kounde expected to start at right-back.

Antoine Griezmann will continue in his new hybrid number 10 role that he has excelled in for his country, just behind France’s all-time record goalscorer Olivier Giroud, who is expected to get the nod once again up front. PSG pair Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé will do the damage from the wide positions, with Mbappé free to cut in and allow the energetic Theo Hernandez to do what he does best and fly down the left-hand side.

Real Madrid pair Aurélien Tchouaméni and the versatile Eduardo Camavinga, who can fill in at left-back or centre-back if needed, should anchor the midfield with Adrien Rabiot on hand if either are unavailable.

Poland Latest Team News

With 82 goals in 148 appearances for his nation, Robert Lewandowski is Poland’s household name and he have to be at his very best if he is going to fire them into the knockout rounds.

Apart from the world class Lewandowski, Poland also have a host of talented players throughout their squad.

Jakub Kiwior, Matty Cash, Jan Bednarek and Jakub Moder are all well known names to those that follow English football, while two-footed Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski is also one of the first names on the teamsheet. Wojciech Szczęsny will start between the sticks once more after a successful season with Juventus that saw him keep 15 clean sheets in 25 Serie A appearances in 2023/24. 

Karol Swiderski faces a race to be fit.

France vs Poland Head to Head

Games between these two nations tend to be close, but Poland have failed to win any of the previous eight head-to-head meetings (D4 L4). Les Bleus came out on top at the 2022 World Cup, winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe (2) in the last 16.
