France continues its preparations for the 2018 World Cup when it hosts Ireland at the Stade de France in Paris on Monday.
The French are among the favorites to win the World Cup, and emerged victorious in a recent simulation run by EA Sports' FIFA 18. In reality, the star-studded Les Bleus have work to do to reach their peak form in time for Russia, and that starts with the first of three friendlies before they open the competition against Australia on June 16. France will also play against Italy and the United States before the World Cup.
France and Ireland have plenty of history one another, most notably the 2010 World Cup qualifying playoff, when Thierry Henry's uncalled handball helped set up France's game-winning goal in against the Irish and controversially sent Les Bleus to South Africa.
