France vs Netherlands Prediction & Pick
It's worth noting right off the bat that these teams will not look exactly the same on Friday as the they did in the World Cup. French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has retired and Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong is out with a hamstring injury. The Dutch are also led by a new manager in Ronald Koeman.
The French are still a deep and talented team led by the likes of new captain Kylian Mbappe, though. The 24-year-old draws a great matchup on the left side of the pitch as defender Denzel Dumfries' lack of speed may come back to bite him. Mbappe will do whatever it takes to earn a victory here.
Final Score Prediction: France: 2 | Netherlands: 1

Both of these teams will be looking to start Group B action off with a bang, but only one team rosters one of the best soccer players in the world. Mbappe scored 5 goals across six World Cup matches and has scored 36 goals in 66 total matches for France. He knows how to step up when it matters.
