France vs Columbia
FRA vs COL MATCH PREVIEW:
France can rival any team in the world in terms of boasting world-renowned superstars in their ranks. The Les Blues headed into Euro 2016 as a host nation and were hot-favorites to lift the title. All those ambitions got a big boost when the 2000 Euro Champions knocked the reigning World Champions Germany out from the competition courtesy of a 2-0 win in the semifinal.
But Portugal frustrated the host in the final and ended up winning 1-0 after extra-time. It was a big shock considering Cristiano Ronaldo played only a few minutes in the final. So the World Cup is an opportunity for Didier Deschamps and his men to redeem for the past mistakes.
Columbia, on the other hand, are struggling to get decent run of form. The South American nation wrestled their way into the World Cup after winning just seven of their 18 games in the qualifying campaign. They finished fourth just one point ahead of Peru booked their place after beating New Zealand in the playoff.

Match Timing: Tomorrow, March 24, 01:30 AM IST
Venue: Stade de France, Saint-Denis
Form of the teams-
France boast the likes of Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, and Ousmane Dembele in their ranks and quite understandably those players make them one of the favorites to win. They also topped the group of their qualifying campaign. But the fact that they drew against Luxembourg at home and were beaten by Sweden, it gives visitors enough impetus going into the match.
Columbia have played two games since their qualifying campaign ended. The first game ended in an away loss against South Korea while they defeated China in the other game.
But the 2001 Copa America Champion boast the likes of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao in their ranks, so France need to be careful of the threat of those aforementioned players.
