Mbappe will command Maguire to polish his boots!

There will be uncontrolled weeping and wailing, not to mention the gnashing of teeth when the French army march end the dreams of the Three lions at the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar on Saturday.

France are the reigning world champions and have up to this stage performed like champions, while the Brits have only flattered to deceive and to all those rushing to their various betting stations, do not hesitate to put all your golden eggs in the French basket.

Unless of course, if you are a die-hard Harry Maguire follower and is fervently convinced that the Manchester United defender is blessed with all the attributes and capabilities of stopping a flying Kylan Mbappe dead in his tracks.

France have won the Mundial back in 1998 as hosts led by the inimitable Zinedine Zidane, and came to this tournament as defending champions after repeating the feat in Russia four years ago.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the Brits, who last stepped onto the World Cup podium following that controversial final against then West Germany which to this day is still a topic of hot discussions regarding whether that “goal” from Geoff Hurst did indeed cross the line or not.

Agreed, Gareth Southgate has spruced up the Brits, reduced the age of the squad and introduced a refreshing approach where they are now capable of putting their feet on the ball unlike in the past when they haired down the line with blinding speed, crossed the ball into the box and prayed that someone would collide with the ball and it would end up behind the net.

But there is no way that they would stop Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, Raphael Verane to mention just a few and no matter how you look at it, the likes of Kyle Walker would be commanded by Mbappe to go fetch coffee for him and even polish his boots!
