France have already cruised past the group stages following an impressive 4-1 and 2-1 win against Australia and Denmark, respectively. The French have shown strong signs of being more than capable of defending their 2018 crown, even after losing several key players to injury.

They still have to play one final match against Tunisia before the round of 16 kicks off. Didier Deschamps has fielded a largely rotated side, with six players playing their first 2022 World Cup game.

Of these, Eduardo Camavinga has been given a break in the team – at left-back, though. He starts alongside Madrid legend Raphael Varane, while Ibrahim Konate and Axel Disasi round off the back-four.

Steve Mandanda started for France vs Denmark in the group stages four years ago, and will hope to keep yet another clean sheet tonight, replacing Hugo Lloris in goal.

Aurelien Tchouameni has done exceedingly well in the group stages so far, and starts yet another game, partnered with Youssouf Fofana and Jordan Veretout to form a midfield trident.

Matteo Guendouzi could act as the attacking midfielder, playing behind the front-two of Randal Kolo Muani and Kingsley Coman.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
