France will face Ecuador on the road to advance to the next stage of World Cup 2014 in their final match of Group stage. Undoubtedly France is the strongest team in the group after Switzerland. They were placed in the 17th rank in World FIFA Ranking. Les Bleues were the winner of 1998 tournament but in 2002, the team has been eliminated from the group stage. There is an obvious lack of consistency for the Europeans in world cup. They are once again a strong contender in Brazil and they should be destined for a great tournament. But one thing which they need to keep in their mind is that they should eradicate their constant lapses in concentration. This match on 25 June provides France a fair opportunity to play their aggressive football with their deep pool of talent. Ecuador will be a tricky team to come up heading into the World Cup 2014. Their main problem has been their strike force but this team is a brilliant defensive unit. Overall, the South Americans need to show great zeal and vigor to make them count in group E.

Players to watch:
Currently the most capped player in the French squad, Franck Ribery who leads the French attack. But unfortunately due to back injury he was ruled out for the World Cup 2014. France could be in big trouble without its top star. But the team do have Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud in the team who can sail the French with full lead.
Antonio Valencia, Ecuador’s best player as well as captain himself proved that he can be one of the best wingers in the Premier League over the past few years on his day for Manchester United. He also was very close with Benitez.
Head to head:
This pair fought once earlier in Friendlies six years ago in which France defeated Ecuador by two goals to none.
