France has been dealing with Injuries.

The latest setback to France’s title defence in Qatar 2022 is Lucas’ injury. After suffering a thigh injury last week, star forward and Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema lost to help Didier Deschamps even before the competition began.

Additionally, Deschamps is without important contributors Paul Pogba, Christopher Nkunku, N’Golo Kante, and Presnel Kimpembe, who were instrumental in France’s World Cup victory in Russia in 2018. For the first time since Brazil in 1962, Deschamps’ team hopes to successfully defend the trophy.

France looks promising as they beat Australia 4-1.

Craig Goodwin scored in the ninth minute to give Australia a quick 1-0 lead over France against the 2018 FIFA World Cup champions. In the 27th minute, France equalised with a goal from Adrien Rabiot following a cross to the middle of the box. With a second goal in the 32nd minute, Oliver Giroud gave France a 2-1 advantage over Australia.

France had the advantage as the second half got started, and Australia was once more having trouble scoring goals. Kylian Mbappé scored his first goal with a lovely header in the 68th minute, and Olivier Giroud scored three minutes later to give France a 4-1 victory over Australia. With two goals in a 4-1 victory, Olivier Giroud tied Thierry Henry for second on France’s all-time scoring chart with 51 goals.
