France v England Past Meetings

These two nations last met on an emotional November night in 2015, just days after the Paris attacks. England won 2-0 – Dele Alli scoring on his full debut – ensuring the Three Lions’ first win over France since the turn of the millennium.


France v England Stats

England are seeking a first victory away against France since 1997, when Alan Shearer was the sole scorer.

Neither country has scored three goals against the other in 11 meetings since the 1982 World Cup, when France won 3-1


France Team News

Didier Deschamps has no fresh injury concerns following his side’s defeat to Sweden. He could choose to give starts to exciting youngsters Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappé.


England Team News

Gareth Southgate could makes some changes to the side that drew with Scotland on Saturday. Kieran Trippier and Ben Gibson will be hoping to make their debuts at some point.


Reason for France v England Bets

End of season friendlies aren’t always the most exciting of affairs – players are ninety minutes away from their holidays and officially, there isn’t anything to play for. Nevertheless, England versus France is a sporting rivalry which always commands commitment – not least because many of the players are teammates or Premier League rivals.

Both nations come into the match off the back of disappointing World Cup Qualifying results. Les Bleus played out a sluggish game in Stockholm, leading Sweden through an Olivier Giroud wondergoal before eventually losing to a 93-minute winner. In truth, the Blue-Yellow’s late goal only came about through a Hugo Lloris error, but Deschamps would still have been disappointed with his side’s inability to see off their rivals.

England meanwhile were held to a draw by a resurgent Scotland side. Southgate’s men put on an unimpressive display – they looked disjointed and lacked cutting edge further up the field. Nevertheless, Harry Kane’s dramatic late equaliser felt like a point gained for the Three Lions, despite the poor performance.

Both sides will want to end the season with a win, but recent form suggests that this isn’t going to be a lightning-paced, end-to-end match. What’s more, these sides are fairly equally matched, so back a draw at 12/5 with Bet365. Over 2.5 goals has happened in just two of the last 11 head-to-heads, so take a draw and under 2.5 goals at 3/1 with William Hill.
