Uruguay vs France Preview:

The first quarter final will see two former World Champions locking horns for a spot in the semi final. France has the one of the attack lineups in this world cup whereas Uruguay has the defense lines in this world cup. The clash of these two teams promises to be a thrill ride as Antoine Griezmann knows everything about the Uruguayan defense master Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, in their time in Atletico Madrid so he is one of the crucial players of this game. Griezmann will be backed by Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba on the ground as they march to tear down the defensive wall of Uruguay. Moreover, the absence of Edinson Cavani from the team sheet for this game will also be an added boost for Les Bleus. Uruguay on the other hand has conceded one goal in this tournament so far and it is likely that they would want to keep it that way.

The question remains if France can execute their attacks clinically in this game or not.
