France and Argentina will battle it out in the first last 16 fixture at the Kazan Arena in a match that features some of the biggest names in football
The first fixture of the last 16 round will be a huge clash between France and Argentina at the Kazan Arena on Saturday June 30.
Argentina were on the verge of being eliminated from the tournament until Marcos Rojo’s last-minute goal against Nigeria in their final group game that they won 2-1, while France topped their group despite giving three underwhelming group stage performances.
Les Bleus were one of the favourites going into the tournament but have failed to impress just yet, while Argentina will be pushing to win the competition following their status as runners-up in Brazil four years ago.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the fixture between the two sides.
Admittedly, neither side has really showcased their best in Russia thus far, but nevertheless, it is a mouthwatering match-up at this stage of the competition. France meandered through their group somewhat to get here but if you think Les Bleus have been uninspiring, you clearly haven’t seen enough of Argentina. La Albiceleste were on the brink of elimination before Marcos Rojo of all people, scored in the 86th minute against Nigeria to send them into the knockout stages. Quite miraculously given their prestige and records on the world stage, this is only the third World Cup meeting between the two and the first in 40-years! With a plethora of attacking talent on show, we should (hopefully) be in for a great spectacle.
