TV: France – Australia, what time and on which channels to see the match of the Blues?

Reigning world champions, the France team is putting their trophy back on the line four years after their coronation in Russia. For their entry into the running in Qatar, the Blues will face Australia… as in 2018. A sign of fate?

What time for France – Australia?

Four years ago, France started with a timid 2-1 victory against Australia with a penalty from Griezmann. At the end of 2022, the Blues would sign directly for this result against this same opponent. A little in doubt after the last complicated rallies, France will try to reassure themselves as much as possible for this first match. A meeting that will be disputed Tuesday, November 22 at 8 p.m. at Al Janoub Stadium, a 45,120 spectator stadium based in Al Wakrah. The referee for this match will be the South African Victor Gomes, who was on the whistle in the last CAN final.

On which channels to follow France – Australia?

Like all the matches of the France team during this 2022 World Cup, this match against Australia will be played in front of the cameras of TF1 and of beIN Sports 1. A game that will make it possible to make a first selection in Group D, where Denmark will be a real outsider behind France. On the front page, comments will be provided by Gregoire Margotton and Bixente Lizarazu, while Saber Desfarges will be on the pitch. On the Qatari channel, Christophe Josse and Daniel Bravo will be on commentary.

The probable line-ups of France – Australia:

Last winner of the World Cup, France will seek to do better than its predecessors, Germany, Spain and Italy having been taken out in the first round after their coronations. For this, the group of Didier Deschamps will have to start its World Cup in Qatar in the best possible way, despite the fact that the coach will have to do without Benzema, forfeited for this World Cup… Without Kanté or Pogba in the middle, France will not ‘will therefore not field their best team, but Mbappé, Griezmann, Dembélé and Giroud will be keen to reassure everyone from this first meeting.

The probable composition of France: Lloris – Pavard, Konaté, Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez – Tchouaméni, Rabiot – Dembélé, Griezmann, Mbappé – Giroud.

Already opponent of the Blues four years ago, Australia hopes to have more success than in Russia, where the country of Oceania had scored only one point. For the sixth World Cup in its history, the country of coach Graham Arnold dreams of reaching the round of 16, as in 2006. A mission that will have to begin to be fulfilled from this first match against the outgoing world champions.

Australia’s probable line-up: Ryan – Atkinson, Wright, Rowles, Behich – Hrustic, Mooy, Irvine – Leckie, Duke, Goodwin.
