World champions France begin their title defense against Australia in Group D.
2018 World Cup winners France will take center stage when they defend their title against Australia at the South Stadium.
Didier Deschamps wanted Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema to avoid injury. Real Madrid player number 9, as well as Christopher Ngongo, will miss the Le Blues match.
However, all eyes will be on their world-class talent Kylian MbappeTaking on the burden of goal in the absence of Benzema is a priority.
Meanwhile, Australia hopes to achieve a positive result to boost its ambitions to reach the knockout stages, with three consecutive exits from the group stage. The Australians have picked up two wins from two in September, which should help them keep their faith against the favorites to go all this time around.
