Didier Deschamps’ France scraped through the group stage with two 1-0 wins and a goalless draw. But when the stakes were upped, against Argentina in the Round of 16, Kylian Mbappe and his mates rose to the challenge. That 4-3 win in Kazan illustrated France’s ability to outscore any other team in the tournament, something that should hold them in good stead on Friday. Uruguay, under Oscar Tabarez, will not be an easy nut to crack, however. Led by Diego Godin, they have been one of the best defensive units at the World Cup having conceded one goal so far, in the 2-1 win against Portugal in the Round of 16 (Video credit: Perform).
