France vs Australia live stream: how to watch World Cup 2022 online from anywhere today, team news

France will start the defense of their World Cup crown when they take on Australia in Al Wakrah today. Les Bleus will be looking to avoid the fate of previous holders who crashed out in the group stage, which will be easier now that Denmark and Tunisia have played out a goalless draw. An opener against Australia also looks kind, but the Socceroos will be out to prove they’re not just in Qatar to make up the numbers. Here’s how to watch a France vs Australia live stream in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

France were unbeaten in qualifying and finished top of their group, but they dropped points against Ukraine and Bosnia & Herzegovina – two teams you’d expect them to comfortably beat. Didier Deschamps will have to cope without some big players through injury, but the squad depth here is second to none. All the same, with Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema playing the best football of his career, the Madrid front man will be a big miss. Luckily, Mbappe seems to play better with Giroud. All in all, France have a real chance of retaining the title for the first time since Brazil did it in 1962.
