Frank Leboeuf Says If France Loses to Australia, It’s Over
“We absolutely need to win against Australia,” says Leboeuf.
Frank Leboeuf gave his analysis on the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup that kicks off on June 14 at 6 p.m. local time in Russia.
Leboeuf is a retired soccer player who played for the French national team betwen 1995 to 2002, and has since been working as an actor in films such as “The Theory of Everything” and “The Eight Sin.”
France will kick off with Australia on Saturday, June 16. Leboeuf stated that the first game for France is the most important one as it will set the tone for the coming matches.
Australia doesn’t seem to be playing at their best as they have lost four out of the last 15 matches. That isn’t far off from France, who have lost three out of the last 15 matches, but Australia has had more draws than France.
Leboeuf also said that Peru is seen to be a major threat as they have not lost in 15 matches. He said that Denmark is coming in as a strong team—out of the last 15 matches played, they have only lost two.
Group C consists of France, Australia, Peru, and Denmark. In this group stage, all the teams will face each other and the two teams with the highest number of points will move on to the knockout rounds.
