Tunisia play France needing a stunning World Cup win to emerge from Group D.
A victory will be enough if Australia and Denmark draw, or Kasper Hjulmand’s side win but with an inferior goal margin to the north Africans. While Les Bleus hope to grab a point to clinch top spot after Kylian Mbappe’s double downed Denmark last time out.
“I wasn’t worried – I am never worried when it comes to my squad,” Didier Deschamps said when discussing the World Cup curse of the holders exiting at the group stage. “When I am with my boys, I have got my head down and I know what we need to do to win. I was not worried about these figures, about the title holders and the curse.
Statistics are there for a reason but statistics are also there to be broken. This squad? They have so much quality. We have got great players, a great team and there is a great spirit about them.”
Here’s everything you need to know.

What TV channel is it on and how can I watch it online?
In the UK, tune in to the match live on BBC One, coverage starts at 2.30pm before anthems just before the 3pm kick-off. A live stream is also available on the BBC iPlayer.
France XI: Mandanda, Disasi, Varane, Konate, Coman, Tchouameni, Fofana, Guendouzi, Veretout, Camavinga, Kolo Muani.
Tunisia XI: Dahmen, Kechrida, Talbi, Meriah, Maaloul, Ghandri, Ali Ben Romdhane, Laidouni, Skhiri, Slimane, Khazri.
France may well ease off the gas here knowing they are safely through and rotation is obvious, but Les Bleus have too much quality here and the competition in the squad will take them past a limited Tunisia, 3-0.
