The Gibraltar national team will face the France national team in 3rd round of the 2024 Euro Qualifying on Friday, June 16, 2023. Live streaming of Gibraltar vs France, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.
France will continue their run of EURO 2024 qualifiers with two games against Gibraltar and Greece in June. Didier Deschamps’ side lead unanimously in Group B with two straight wins without conceding a goal. They have also maintained their good form and form since the 2022 World Cup, where they finished runners-up after losing to Argentina in the final.
However, France is also facing some strength issues ahead of these two important fixtures. They will have to miss the services of Adrien Rabiot, who injured his calf while playing for Juventus. The midfielder should have started one or even both matches, but has now had to be replaced by Aston Villa’s Boubacar Kamara.
In addition, France is also unable to play Lucas Hernandez, William Lilina, Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema, who have each been injured or retired from the national team. Even so, the blue jersey team still has plenty of other stars to make a difference in the match, such as Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Marcus Thuram, Kingsley Coman, Ousmane Dembele and especially super attacking captain Kylian Mbappe.
In midfield, Eduardo Camavinga stands out as a solution to replace Rabiot. The youngster is in competition with Youssouf Fofana, who was Aurelien Tchouameni’s partner at Monaco. Both of them have great potential to help France control the midfield and create opportunities for the attackers.
At the back, Benjamin Pavard has guaranteed the right-back position for him after scoring the lone goal against Ireland back in March. He could start against Gibraltar before setting Jules Kounde in the game against Greece three days later. At left-back, Theo Hernandez will compete with Ferland Mendy for a place in the first team.
France certainly will not underestimate their opponents, even though Gibraltar and Greece are teams that are not suitable for them. Gibraltar is only considered as a roadblock or a source of points for group B teams to exploit. They will play with a super defensive 5-4-1 formation to minimize the number of goals scored by France.
Meanwhile, Greece is a tougher opponent for France. They are in second place in Group B with four points from two matches. They have some quality players like Kostas Manolas, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Andreas Samaris and Konstantinos Mitroglou. They will try to provide fierce resistance for France at the Stade de France.
France will target a big win against Gibraltar to continue to strengthen its position at the top of the standings. Then, they will face an even bigger challenge from Greece to maintain their unbeaten record in EURO 2024 qualifiers. With a strong and experienced squad, France hopes to continue their dominance in Europe and the world.
