The 2022 FIFA World Cup is well into the knockout stage with some exciting matchups slated for Saturday, Dec. 10, including a quarterfinals showdown between England and France.

Meanwhile, France advanced to the quarterfinals following a one-sided victory of its own, outworking Poland for a 3-1 win with the help of two goals from Kylian Mbappé.

England vs France Prediction & Pick
England may have won 17 of the previous 31 battles against France, but wins have been hard to come by in recent years. It's the French who have only lost once to the English since 1999, going 5-2-1 (W-D-L) in their last eight matchups.
France also brings a ton of World Cup experience into the latest meeting, making it to the finals in two of the last four tournaments — including its 2018 championship victory. Meanwhile, England has only made it beyond the quarterfinals once in that stretch, placing fourth four years ago.
England has played better than expected this year, but France's experience, along with the likes of Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann, will help get the job done. Back the defending champs advancing to the semifinals following hard-fought battle.
Final Score Prediction: France: 2 | England: 1
