England vs France Semi Final preview

England vs France Semi Final preview

With both sides having reached the Semi Finals with narrow wins against Southern Hemisphere giants, England and France are both one step away from the World Cup final.

For England, their supporters will be over the moon as based on previous performances they never would have expected it. England have come to the party though, and lets not forget that they are the current World Champions after all.

France on the other hand have the expectations of a nation on their shoulders, which could have a great positive effect on the side, or the pressure to perform will be too much for them.

Don't count on seeing an expansive game if thats what you were hoping for. Both sides have excellent forward packs and will no doubt battle it out up front, with their respective quality kickers have pot shots at goal and exchanging penalties.

Personally I think France have the edge, but if this world cup has shown us one thing, it's that you should always expect the unexpected.

Enjoy this compilation clip of previous England vs France encounters as we count down to the crunch game tomorrow evening in Paris.
