England are preparing for a clash against France at Al Bayt Stadium on Saturday in what is a match in the Quarter-final of the World Cup.

England and France worked their way through their respective groups and also the Round of 16 to qualify for the Quarter-finals of the World Cup. Both are highly motivated to continue their quest for the second World Cup title.

France arrive at their next away match as number four in the FIFA world ranking. Meanwhile, England are looking ahead to the game as number five in the standings.

France played an awesome game against Poland, disposing Lewandowski and co. without too much hassle in the end. It could have gotten hot, though, with the Poles missing a massive chance with the score 0-0. Lloris won't want to give away such chances against an in-form English side.

England played a dour 30 minutes against Senegal and then settled the game completely before half-time. With Harry Kane finally getting on the scoreboard, the result said 3-0 in the end with Senegal never finding a way back. We are in for a fantastic battle on Saturday.
