With reserves, champion France loses 9-game unbeaten run in World Cups – 11/30/2022

After suffering from several casualties before the Cup, coach Didier Deschamps decided not to risk it and entered the field this Wednesday (30) with a reserve team to face Tunisia. Already classified, the French team could not perform without its main names and ended up being defeated by 1 x 0, also losing its longest unbeaten run in the history of the World Cups, of nine games.

In addition to losing Maignan, Kimpembe, Kanté, Pogba, Kamara, Nkunku and Benzema, before the start of the Cup, France was without left-back Lucas Hernández, who was injured in his debut, against Australia. Without a good team, France played poorly and hit their first shot on goal, with Dembele, in the 35th minute of the second half. Mbappé, who came on in the 18th minute in place of Coman, had a good chance in the 44th minute, stopping goalkeeper Dahmen. In the 54th minute, Griezmann tied the game, but the goal was disallowed by VAR.

Despite having less possession of the ball (38% to 62%), according to SofaScore statistics, Tunisia created more chances to score (there were five shots on goal, three of which were accurate). Undefeated champions in 2018, with six wins and a draw, France won their first two games in the 2022 World Cup. Now, only Brazil and Portugal follow with 100% success in the Qatar Cup.

With the results of this Wednesday, France finished as leader of Group D with six points. Australia, who beat Tunisia and Denmark, also had six points and secured a place for the round of 16 for the second time in history – the first was in 2006. Denmark, which for many would be a big surprise in this Cup, was in the last place of the group with only one point.
