Qatar 2022: It's getting complicated for the Blues!

While it has particularly appeared to be struggling, the France team has seen its next opponents at the World Cup shine in the last international matches.

The Blues are having trouble five months before the World Cup in Qatar. At least if we stick to the last four matches played by the men of Didier Deschamps on the occasion of the third edition of the League of Nations. With two defeats and two draws, the world champions have completely gone through, still showing themselves as feverish in defense but also uninspired in attack. As a result of this bad sequence, France lost its third place in the Fifa Ranking to Argentina.

The message from Denmark

But if France can be worried, it is also because of the state of form displayed by their opponents in Qatar. This is especially true of Denmark who came to win at the Stade de France in the first match of the League of Nations (1-2). If they bit the dust against Croatia, the Danes added two convincing successes against Austria. Denmark are in a strong position to qualify for the Nations League Final Four and have returned to the Top 10 of the FIFA rankings.

Tunisia at the party

With three wins and a draw, Tunisia is doing even better. Constrained to a draw in Bostwana (1-1) in the qualifiers for the next African Cup of Nations, the Carthage Eagles had previously given a lesson to Equatorial Guinea (4-0) before adding two victories in friendly during the Kirin Cup, against Chile (2-0) then Japan (3-0). Enough to allow Tunisia to return to the Top 30 of the FIFA rankings.

Issuance for Australia

But the most beautiful operation is obviously that carried out by Australia, against whom the Blues will open the ball on November 22nd. Not because of the two victories and the draw chained by the Socceroos or the 21.4 points registered in the FIFA rankings. After a friendly success against Jordan, Australia has indeed won one of the last tickets for the World Cup by pulling out of the play-offs. After a first success against the United Arab Emirates, the Australians overcame Peru on penalties, thus validating the sixth qualification for the World Cup in their history after 1974, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018.
