Everything you need to know about where to watch France vs Australia World Cup 2022 match in the United Kingdom, United States and India.

France will take on Australia in their first 2022 World Cup Group D match on Tuesday at the Al Janoub Stadium, as they begin their defence of their crown.

A 2-0 win over Austria in September is France's only victory in their last six matches. Their poor form has cost them a place in the Nations League finals, but Didier Deschamps' side will still have to be considered as one of the favourites despite their recent form. Karim Benzema's absence will hurt the team's chances but fans will be fairly confident they have enough talent in the squad to cope with the situation.

Australia, meanwhile, are on a winning run of five matches, which includes two friendlies against New Zealand they played in September. Graham Arnold will be hoping his team can carry their recent form to the big stage as they face the daunting task of taking points off Les Bleus.
