Didier Deschamps’ side went all the way in Russia four years ago, while Australia are aiming to end a run of three successive group-stage exits.

Since claiming victory over Croatia in Moscow, France have added another major trophy to their cabinet in the form of the UEFA Nations League, but the negatives have far overwhelmed the positives for Les Blues.

Having been eliminated from Euro 2020 at the last-16 stage, France are already guaranteed to hand over their Nations League crown after a poor period of performance in the 2022-23 edition, which very nearly culminated in an unimaginable relegation to League B.

However, as defending champions, Les Blues command a healthy amount of respect, but history is certainly not on their side as they aim to become only the third team after Italy and Brazil to win back-to-back World Cups.

The art of taking off a goalkeeper and bringing on a penalty-saving specialist is a difficult one to master, but Graham Arnold pulled it off in Australia’s playoff final against Peru, with Andrew Redmayne channelling his inner Bruce Grobbelaar in the shootout and helping to send the Socceroos through.

Redmayne’s efforts ensured that Australia would be present at the World Cup finals for the fourth time in a row, but they have suffered three group-stage exits in that period and have won just one of their last nine matches at the tournament, a 2-1 victory over Serbia in 2010.

A round-of-16 berth in the 2006 competition represents Australia’s best achievement at the World Cup so far, and they enter their opening game off the back of five successive victories.
