France hero Kylian Mbappe has been in spectacular form and will be determined to help fire his team into the final four

England and France will compete for a place in the World Cup last four when they meet in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

Les Bleus hope to keep their chances of retaining their world crown by getting the better of Gareth Southgate's team, but the Three Lions have looked strong in the competition so far.

England vs France latest odds

France are slight favourites to win the quarter-final tie and progress to last four at odds of 7/5 (2.40) with bet365.

England are the outsiders to win the game at odds of 2/1 (3.00) while the draw is priced at 9/4 (3.25).

England vs France first goal scorer odds

Kylian Mbappe, as the tournament's top scorer, is the obvious favourite to break the deadlock at 9/2 (5.50).

England hero Harry Kane is the next favourite at 5/1 (6.00), while Olivier Giroud, now France's all-time top scorer, can be backed at 6/1 (7.00).

Callum Wilson is the next lowest priced player to get the opener at 7/1 (8.00).

England vs France preview

England have the unenviable task of trying to keep Kylian Mbappe quiet in this quarter-final.

The France hero has scored five goals so far in the competition, making him the top scorer in Qatar.

Les Bleus also boast the likes of Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann in attack, which will put fear into England's back line.

But the Three Lions have plenty of quality themselves. Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham were bright spots in their 3-0 win against Senegal in the last round, so Gareth Southgate's men will fancy their chances of beating the world champions.

England vs France tips and predictions

Kylian Mbappe has been unstoppable in this competition and will be determined to continue his good form by getting a goal to upset England. Backing him to score any time in the game is available at odds of 7/4 (2.75).
