France vs Argentina: Match Preview & Line Up for last 16 knockout tie

After a disappointing 1-1 draw with Iceland in the opening game, Argentina found themselves in trouble when they were humiliated 3-0 by Croatian until Rojo became the hero vs Nigeria.

France’s passage through to the knockout stage meanwhile was less eventful, qualifying with a game to spare and drawing 0-0 with Denmark to round off an uninspiring group campaign.

Lionel Messi provided his nation with some much-needed inspiration after his penalty miss earlier in the tournament, and the pressure will be on the captain to deliver again.

 

As for Les Bleus, Antoine Griezmann has endured a frustrating time since his penalty against Australia while Kylian Mbappe scored the winner against Peru.

 

Argentina, meanwhile, are set to name an unchanged side from the team that beat Nigeria 2-1.

 

France XI: Lloris, Sidibe, Umtiti, Varane, Hernandez, Pogba, Kante, Mbappe, Griezmann, Matuidi, Giroud

 

Argentina XI: Armani, Mercado, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico, Perez, Mascherano, Banega, Di Maria, Messi, Higuain
