The first potentially dangerous a.t.ta/ck situation for Poland during the game occurred during the 38th minute of play. Frankowski passed the ball into the penalty area after Kounde was taken out from the left side of the field, which stopped the French players inside the penalty area in their tracks.
Zielinski was able to take a free kick as a result, but since Lloris was the goalkeeper, the ball struck him in the knees. After Kaminski had scored on the backfill and the opposing team’s goalkeeper was slow to react, Varane made a save for Les Bleus right on the goal line.
For a very long time, Raphael Varane has played a significant role for France’s national team. He will play against Tunisia in the World Cup final as one of just two players on the primary French squad. Dayot Upamecano and Jules Kounde, who are playing in their first full-time World Cup games, will be guided by him as the defensive coordinator for France.
Before this year’s World Cup, Raphael Varane appeared to be out of shape due to an injury he sustained while playing for Manchester United. This wound was really bad.
In light of Lucas Hernandez’s early exit from the World Cup due to a serious injury, Varane’s return gives the French team more options when it comes to defense. This is especially important given the circumstances surrounding Hernandez’s departure. Varane is not as versatile as Lucas, but when it comes to his form, he has consistently been one of the best center backs in the world. Lucas is more versatile.
When Varane was just 20 years old, he began to receive call-ups to play for France’s national team. This began in 2013.
This central defender has played 90 times for France and has scored 5 goals for his country.
Varane and his teammates brought home both the World Cup in 2018 and the UEFA Nations League trophy in the 2020/21 season while competing for the French national team.

At a time when Poland was dangerously close to scoring, France displayed the valor of the defending champion with a Mbappe-Giroud combination that created an outstanding opportunity. After failing to score at the 2018 World Cup, Giroud scored three goals in four matches in Qatar.
After gaining the advantage, France actively encouraged the team to pursue. Poland was co/m/p/e/lled to stockpile. While “White Eagles” were still attempting to formulate an a.t.ta/ck strategy, “Gaulois Rooster” launched a countera.t.ta/ck.
In the 75th minute, Antoine Griezmann entered the penalty area to assist the defense and executed a pinpoint pass to Giroud. Mbappe’s accurate shot from 16.2 meters away against Szczesny ended France’s rapid advance to the ball.
Lewandowski and his teammates played cautiously until the final whistle blew. France, on the other side of the front line, refused to cease fighting.
Mbappe collected the ball from Marcus Thuram in injury time 90 + 1 before scoring decisively, driving Szczesny into the net for the third time. Poland a.t.ta/cked in vain but scored an honorable goal in the 90+9 minute after the ball came into contact with Upamecano’s hand in the penalty area.
To defeat Hugo Lloris, Lewandowski had to take the second penalty. The match at Thumama Stadium ended in a 3-1 victory for France.
