Reigning champions France stand in the way of England reaching a second successive World Cup semi-final under Gareth Southgate.
They were the outstanding team in Russia four years ago and are confident they will keep their crown if Kylian Mbappé maintains his excellent form.
The explosive striker is the tournament’s top scorer with five goals, including a brace against Denmark and Poland, and will need to be kept quiet if England are to progress.
The Three Lions also have plenty of firepower, but have spread their 12 goals more evenly across the team.
The kick-off is at 19:00 GMT. Make sure you know how to watch World Cup 2022 wherever you are.
Raheem Sterling missed England’s 3-0 win over Senegal to see his family after their home was broken into on Saturday. Phil Foden started in his absence and it has not been confirmed if the Chelsea winger will return to France.
Didier Deschamps’ team is deprived of Karim Benzema due to an injury, but Olivier Giroud remains an impressive substitute. His goal against Poland moved him away from Thierry Henry as France’s all-time leading goalscorer.
England are undefeated at the World Cup. They topped their group with seven points before passing Senegal in the second round.
France had already made progress after two games, allowing them to rest key players in the 1-0 defeat to Tunisia. Poland was no match for their first-choice team last time.

Players to watch / Important battles
Kylian Mbappé’s devastating combination of speed, skill and finishing make him one of the world’s best players. Kyle Walker will have to be at his best to keep him down.
Jude Bellingham has emerged as the heartbeat of England’s midfield at just 19 years old. His all-action style disrupts the opponent’s flow and gives the attacker a platform to make decisive contributions.

Kickoff and channel
The England vs France kick-off is over 19:00 GMT On Saturday December 10 in the United Kingdom. The game is free to watch on ITV 1 and ITVX.
In the US, kick-off time is 11am ET / 2pm PT. The match will be shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re abroad for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. However, you can use a VPN to get around that, without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t determine where you are and let you watch. And all the information that passes between them is completely encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good options out there. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
