After winning their group with some ease beyond the defeat suffered with substitutes against Tunisia, France, current world champion team, puts its crown at stake against the defensive Polish team, who earned a place in the round of 16 thanks to his last line.
And in this scenario there are two names that attract attention: Kylian Mbappé and Robert Lewandowski.
The PSG striker is set to become the protagonist of the competition, determined to lead his nation to be the first to renew the title since Brazil did it in 1962 and thus position himself, at just 23 years old, on the path of his admired Pele.
Injuries have not diverted France from its route and Didier Deschamps has managed, despite the casualties and although they are renowned, to build a solid building with which to postulate himself as a clear favorite with a mixture of the experience accumulated in 2018 seasoned with touches of youth.
Thus, the probable gala formation will be with Hugo Lloris; Jules Koundé, Raphael Varane, Dayot Upamecano, Theo Hernández; Aurelien Tchouaméni, Adrien Rabiot; Antoine Griezmann; Ousmane Dembele, Olivier Giroud and Mbappé.
In front is Poland with the FC Barcelona striker as captain and banner, but basing his power on his defensive solidity and on the figure of the goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesnywho accumulates 90 percent effectiveness in saves and two penalties saved.
The Polish cast maintains a solid base, so their lineup should not change and will probably be with Szczesny; Matty Cash, Kamil Glik, Jakub Kiwior, Bartosz Bereszynski; Grzegorz Krychowiak, Krystian Bielik; Jakub Kaminski, Piotr Zielinski, Przemyslaw Frankowski; and Lewandowski.
The referee of the match will be the Venezuelan Jesús Valenzuela and you will be able to follow him in the Virtual Marker of AlAireLibre.cl and in the story of Al Aire Libre en Cooperativa.
