To have more insights on this World Cup France vs Australia match, please read our preview below.
France was considered favourites to win World Cup after USA was eliminated, but literally stood no chance against Argentina, they could not stop Scola and did not perform as they used to before. Well, now they have to face tough opponent again because Australia is also very passioned and devoted team with great chemistry, like Argentina they like to play a fast game with a lot of three-point shots, so France must make conclusions and focus for the final match because 4th place would be a disaster for them.

It was a very hard semi-final for Australia, they had so many chances to win this match, but wasted them all, and lost in two overtimes, so teams motivation surely will be decreased. However, they still have a chance to take a medal and 3rd place is not bad result for them. But opponent os surely not weak, considering that France has not played so long match, clearly they will have more energy. But France lacks passion and devotion, so this is a big advantage for Australia and if they will play as they played against Spain, surely France won’t win.
