England v France

Focusing on certain players opens up some value, and we're taking the generous looking 15/8 on KYLIAN MBAPPE TO SCORE ANYTIME.

A lot of the pre-game talk has been about Mbappe, with the focus put onto Kyle Walker as the man with the pace to stop him. Most eyes are on that battle, but pure skill wise should see the French star come out on top.

He's in prime position to scoop the Golden Boot award with five on his tally so far. He played pretty poorly across the whole game in their round of 16 win over Poland and yet still found the net twice in the latter stages.

Mbappe's World Cup so far has seen a total of 21 shots - 10 of which on target - and an xG tally of 3.28 for his five. Given the fact he came on as a second-half sub in their final group contest, he's averaging 0.90 xG/95 at the tournament.

Score prediction: England 1-2 France (Sky Bet odds: 8/1)

Odds correct at 1430 GMT (08/12/22)
