1. France vs. Australia, Group C on June 16, 2018:
One of the most interesting match, wherein the hungry “Les Blues”, who won the last World Cup in 1998 will be fighting out with the “Socceroos”, one of the best teams in Asia. Although Australians have participated in just 5 World Cups, they hold the world record for winning with the “largest score in one match” and “most goals” scored by a player in one international match. They had achieved this ultimate record against American Samoa in 2002 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and had won by 31–0 wherein the Australian player Archie Thompson scored 13 goals! We should not forget the performance of French national team in their 15th FIFA World Cup qualifiers for 2018, where they stay unbeaten and topped in their group!

The performance of the defending team will be gauged by this crucial match with Mexico. If Germans have to make history and emerge as the only team to win the world cup back-to-back, then the margin of the score would matter. Mexico national team is all set to upset the defending champions as they among the only 3 nations (other two are Brazil and Germany) who have successfully managed to clear the group stage in the last six World Cups! Moreover, for Mexicans, this is their 16th appearance in the World Cup, having been qualified uninterruptedly since the year 1994.
3. England vs. Belgium, Group G on June 28, 2018:
