World Cup France the biggest test for England – Southgate. France is the toughest test England’s manager, Gareth Southgate, believes his squad will face at the 2022 World Cup.
The current holders and the Three Lions will now face off in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
On Sunday, England defeated Senegal 3-0 to go to the World Cup’s last eight for the second time in a row.
After defeating Poland earlier in the day, Les Bleus now stand in their way as they attempt to advance to the semi-final.
In their previous seven games since the turn of the century, Southgate’s team has only defeated France once.
“France is the biggest challenge we may encounter.
“They are world champions, with a talent pool that is incredibly deep and exceptional players at every position. They are really challenging to play against and score goals against, so it will be a terrific challenge and game to be ready for, according to Southgate, ahead of the match at the Al Bayt Stadium.
