Sport looks ahead to the eagerly-awaited match at Kazan Arena.
France enters this match still looking to find its best form. Even though the numbers look quite solid (two wins in three matches and only goal conceded), the stats do not tell the whole story. They've had hard times and still qualified. After scraping through the Group Stage, Argentina will face a tough challenge from France's young, balanced squad, who dominated their group to advance with little trouble. Can they live up to the expectations around them? That includes the full-back duo of Benjamin Mendy and Djibril Sidibe. "But their team is highly experienced, we talk about Messi, but [Javier] Mascherano has lots of caps, so is used to the pressure".
Samuel Umtiti is also a team-mate of Messi's at Barcelona and his knowledge may prove useful.

Both were among the pre-tournament favorites to win the world championship, but group-stage results paired them together at this relatively early juncture.
Sampaoli has made a fair few big changes after their disappointing performances but this would be very sudden and surprising.
The entire side will be available with the exception of Enzo Perez.
