France v Netherlands Match Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
France last saw action in World Cup 2022, where they lost in the final to Argentina on penalties after drawing 3-3. The Netherlands also made it to the quarter-finals of the World Cup, also bowing to the Albiceleste on penalties after a 2-2 scoreline in 120 minutes. Let’s now take a closer look at each team.
France v Netherlands Match Prediction – Preview
France will try to put the disappointment of the World Cup behind them as they begin their campaign for the European Championship. In the final, Kylian Mbappe scored all of Les Bleus’ goals, leading two comebacks for the national team. They almost clinched the game as Kolo Muani made a drive for the goal in extra time, only to be denied by Argentina’s Emiliano Martinez in a spectacular save. Eventually, they lost the penalty shootout 2-4. Currently ranked number 3 in the world by FIFA, France manager Didier Deschamps has called up nearly the same squad in the World Cup for the qualifiers with some notable changes. With Hugo Lloris announcing his international retirement years earlier, Mike Maignan is the top choice to be between the sticks in the competition. Meanwhile, Mbappe will now be wearing the captain’s armband, and current Ballon d’Or awardee Karim Benzema is noticeably absent again.
The Netherlands begin their quest to end a 35-year trophy drought in the EURO 2024 qualifiers. In the World Cup Qatar 2022, they were knocked out by current World Cup champions Argentina via penalties following a 2-2 draw after extra time. After it looked like La Albiceleste would eliminate Die Oranje 2-0 in full time, Wout Weghorst scored a last minute brace to send the game in extra time. Denzel Dumfries would then be sent off in extra stoppage time, but it took a 3-4 penalty shootout loss on the part of the Dutch to decide the game. Currently ranked number 6 by FIFA, the Oranje face a new era with new management and a lineup worthy of “golden generation” status. Ronald Koeman, who takes over from Louis van Gaal as Netherlands boss, named some holdovers from Qatar in the lineup, plus five uncapped players.
