The FRA vs NED match preview –
Heavyweight countries of Europe when it comes to football face each other as Netherlands play hosts to France on Thursday.
France are the FIFA World Cup champions, and clearly the best team in the world right now. Given how young the squad is, it is bizarre to see the maturity of football that is employed by them. Coach Didier Deschamps has done an exceptional job with these group of players, and he will be eyeing a Euro 2020 title as well. The nucleus of the team is still strong and a FIFA World Cup title will only add to the momentum.
Meanwhile, Netherlands are on a course of becoming relevant in the footballing world. The team failed to make it to the FIFA World Cup in 2018. It has been tough for the Dutch as managerial problems have plagued them. But now, with manager Ronald Koeman at the helm, the order is being restored. The dead weight has been parted with and young talent is being given the due attention to become a future star.
