The Republic of Ireland will host France at the Aviva Stadium on matchday 2 in Group B of Euro 2024 Qualification, Monday, March 27 2023 evening. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since the 2018 World Cup, when France won 2-0 in the last 16.
Ireland are hoping to get off to a strong start to qualifying after failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Stephen Kenny’s side are winless in their last seven matches in all competitions, scoring just two goals. They have also not beaten France in their last nine meetings since 1981.
France, on the other hand, started qualifying with a crushing 4-0 win over the Netherlands at the Stade de France. Didier Deschamps’ side showed their strength with two goals from new captain Kylian Mbappe and one each from Antoine Griezmann and Karim Benzema. They have also not lost in their last 12 matches in all competitions, scoring 33 goals.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has always been a key player for the French national team. Newly appointed as the new captain of France, Mbappe has outstanding speed, technique and eye for goal. He scored twice in the win over the Netherlands and will be looking to add to his collection against the Republic of Ireland.
We want to show that we can be a great team, that is the identity of this generation. The desire to be great and many players have it, said Kylian Mbappe as quoted by CBS Sports.
