William Gallas Exclusive: Confident Of French Win

William Gallas is “very confident” that France will beat England in their upcoming World Cup quarter-final clash, and claims that he is not worried about any of the Three Lions’ individual talents. Both sides topped their groups and recorded comfortable victories in the Round of 16 - France beating Poland 3-1, while England were 3-0 winners against Senegal. Les Bleus and the Three Lions are ranked fourth and fifth in the world, respectively, by FIFA - but Gallas is certain that his nation will emerge victorious.


Confident Of Win

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “I'm really confident about France versus England. 

“England played well and won 3-0 against Senegal but I wasn't surprised by that.

“England has a strong team but I'm very confident that France will win the quarter-final.

“No one scares me in this England team.”

England Midfield Strength

However, Gallas conceded that England’s midfield is an area of strength, picking out Jude Bellingham and particularly Declan Rice as obstacles that France must overcome.

“Saturday's game will be a good challenge for France because they know they'll be playing against Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham, who are really strong,” he explained. 

“France will want to test themselves against this midfield and they will know that you have to play against your level if you want to go through to the next round.

“France's players will find the solution to be stronger than this England team.

“I'm not scared about one player but Declan Rice is in England's squad and no one is really speaking about him, but he's unbelievable. 

“He does the same thing with West Ham and I don't know why he's still there. 

“For a long time, I've not seen a midfielder like him - he's strong, powerful and technically he's unbelievable.

“I'm more scared about England's midfield three than just one player.”

World Cup Winning Experience

France boast a host of players in their squad that were part of their World Cup-winning campaign in 2018 - and Gallas believes that experience gives Les Bleus the edge over England.

The former central defender even dismissed the threat of England captain Harry Kane, claiming the striker is less of a goal threat than he was four years ago, when he won the Golden Boot in Russia.

“France have more experience than the England team,” he said. “That experience will make a difference, that's why France will win. 

“It will be hard for any fan to watch the game to penalties, it has to finish before that. 

“I'm sure the game will be a good game to watch, it won't be played around the back like the way Italy did [in the Euro 2020 final], England will want to get forward. I hope it will be an open game. 

“If this game was four years ago, I'd say Harry Kane would definitely score, but his style of football has changed since.”
