World Cup Guide: Group C

World Cup Guide: Group C

Your round up of every team playing in Russia 2018 continues with Group C. You can catch all the action live at Topgolf.

France

Les Blues have arguably the most stacked squad in the tournament. With the likes of Pogba and Kante in midfield, plus the technical excellence of Thomas Lemar, and Mbappe, Griezmann and Dembele up top, it’s a mystery as to how Didier Deschamps’ men were so inconsistent in qualifying that they drew one game 0-0 against Luxembourg.

France may be unpredictable, but on their day, they are a danger to any team. If everything comes together, they could well be run out surprise winners.

Australia

The Socceroos scraped through qualifying to their fourth consecutive World Cup – and it would be a huge surprise if they made it to the last sixteen. Coach Ange Postecoglou resigned following qualification, perhaps feeling that success Russia would be nigh on impossible.

Aston Villa’s Miles Jedinak is the most experienced and high-quality squad member, but with a lack of prime talent available, Australia are expected to struggle. At least we can have a nostalgic time watching 38 year-old Tim Cahill attempting to score diving headers.

Peru

Prepare to meet your new favorite team. Plucky underdogs Peru might not have star names, but under Head Coach Ricardo Gareca, they’re a side that isn’t afraid to take risks against the big boys.

They shocked the likes of Chile and Ecuador to clinch South America’s fifth World Cup place - and will be out to surprise more established footballing nations this summer.

Denmark

Who could forget Christian Eriksen’s stunning play-off hat-trick vs Ireland? The Spurs playmaker has enjoyed perhaps his best ever season and will relish the chance to be the main man at an international tournament.

The Danes might have not impacted a competition since their stunning Euro 92 victory but with Eriksen on-form, they’ll fancy their chances of putting Peru and Australia to the sword en-route to the last 16.
