France vs Poland LIVE!

Kylian Mbappe scored a penalty but France conceded a spot kick to Robert Lewandowski in a 1-1 draw with Poland, which saw Les Bleus finish second in Group D. Austria beat Netherlands to clinch top spot as Netherlands will advance as one of the best third-placed teams.

France will play the runner-up in Group E, which could be Belgium, Romania, Slovakia or Ukraine, in the last 16 on July 1, and must improve after another underwhelming displace. The pre-tournament favourites have yet to score an open-play goal at Euro 2024.

Mbappe returned to the starting line-up but wearing a mask after breaking his nose. The captain had three shots on target but largely kept away from the more physical battle and did not compete for the ball in the air. He started through the centre but was far more effective when he more to the left wing in the second half. Read back the game with our live blog below.

18:34 , Alex Young

75min: From one end to the other, Mbappe misses a glorious chance to put the game to bed with a weak shot.

18:32 , Alex Young

68min: Zalewski and Szymanski make way for Swiderski and Skoras in Poland’s first changes.

61min: Rabiot, Kante and Barcola are off, Camavinga, Griezmann and Giroud are on.

Poland have been superb at the back, more of the same and France will be in real trouble.

Teams on their way back out.

17:58 , Alex Young

Changes are the break from France? I would not be surprised to see Griezmann come on.

Giroud for Barcola, and Mbappe moving out wide, too.

17:53 , Alex Young

Still no goal from a French player at this tournament after 225 minutes of football.

Not great from the supposed tournament favourites.

Sluggish France

17:51 , Alex Young

Mbappe was denied twice just before the break as Les Bleus took an age to click into gear.

As it stands, France go through in second place and Austria top the group!

17:48 , Alex Young

48min: Dembele takes and it’s straight at the keeper again. Set-pieces have been bad from Dembele.

And that’s half-time!

17:48 , Alex Young

47min: France have one final chance as Poland give away a free kick around 30 yards out, for a foul on Hernandez.

17:46 , Alex Young

46min: Two minutes added on!

17:35 , Alex Young

34min: Lewandowski is spotted in space in the area and has a free header, after getting the better of Saliba, but heads the ball into the pitch and it bounces wide.

17:33 , Alex Young

32min: Mbappe starting to see more of the ball, but he has been quiet so far. Barcola making more happen, but Poland taking everything on the chin for now.

17:29 , Alex Young

28min: A drinks break as it’s baking in Dortmund.

17:27 , Alex Young

17:23 , Alex Young

21min: Mbappe on the edge of the area, can’t see a pass, who sends it across the pitch to Kounde and then Dembele, but this Polish defence stands strong to snuff out the danger.

17:21 , Alex Young

19min: Dembele denied!

A great run from Kante, carrying the ball 40 yards before slipping in Dembele, who is denied by a big save from Skorupski.

Mbappe throws his hands up into the air.

17:18 , Alex Young

17min: This is far more like it from Poland, who are now the team in the ascendency. Moder has a pop from 25 yards, which flies a similar distance wide.

17:16 , Alex Young

15min: Oof, France almost made a meal of that! Poland’s poor delivery makes it way for Urbanski to have a go at point-blank range that’s straight at Maigan.

17:15 , Alex Young

14min: Though, as I write that, Syzmanski forces Poland’s first corner.

17:14 , Alex Young

13min: Lewandowski dropping back to get involved but it’s been a struggle so far.


17:13 , Alex Young

11min: Much better! Dembele skips down the right and into the area, waits for support before passing, which Mbappe misses and then Hernandez is denied at the near post.

Good save.

10min: Mbappe receives the ball inside the area with his back to goal, but is easily shepherded away from danger.

17:10 , Alex Young

Over in the other game

17:07 , Alex Young

6min: An early goal in the other game as Austria take the lead against Netherlands, Malen putting into his own net!

17:06 , Alex Young

5min: Barcola does well to get to the byline before cutting back and winning a corner.

Dembele takes, and almost drops to Upamecano in the six-yard box before bouncing through.

17:04 , Alex Young

3min: It’s all France in the opening minutes, pushing Poland back.

Poland moving into a back five.

17:03 , Alex Young

2min: First touch for Mbappe, as he looks to take on the Poland defence before cutting back into midfield.


17:01 , Alex Young

1min: Here we go! Mbappe has put his mask on.

16:56 , Alex Young

No mask for Mbappe.

16:55 , Alex Young

It looks like a scorcher in Dortmund.

16:54 , Alex Young

Right, here come the teams!

16:49 , Alex Young

France's lucky charm?

Les Blues have never lost a game for France in regulation time at a major tournament (W12, D5) when Kante has played.


16:44 , Alex Young

Will this man be back on song?


16:38 , Alex Young

Kick-off is fast approaching. Final preparations from both squads.

What do France need tonight?

16:30 , Alex Young

France simply need to a draw tonight to seal a top-two place, and that will also be enough for top spot if Netherlands lose to Austria.

To get top spot, and a kinder last-16 draw, France need to better the Dutch’s result. They are level on points and goal difference, so a big win over Poland may be needed.

Netherlands have scored two goals to France’s one, so the group could even be decided on that if the GD is the same.

Basically, France need to score goals.

16:11 , Alex Young

Team news is imminent.


Lewandowski has no plans to retire

15:46 , Alex Young

Poland's Robert Lewandowski has no intention of retiring from international soccer after his side's disappointing Euro 2024 campaign.

With Poland having little but pride to play for in their final game, having become the first team to be eliminated from the European Championship on Friday, there were questions about the 35-year-old Lewandowski's international future.

"I'm 36 years old soon. A lot of people will be wondering how long I will play for, but I still have that fire inside of me and no one from outside will be able to affect my decision," he told reporters on Monday.

"One day, maybe I'll wake up and think maybe it's time to think about retiring from international duty. But today I feel and I see that this team has a future, that despite this European Championship we have built something here.

"We have constructed something here. I see the potential in this team. I see a lot of young players emerging."


Latest odds

15:39 , Alex Young

It should be fairly routine for France tonight, right? The bookies seem to think so.

  • France 2/9

  • Draw 11/2

  • Poland 12/1

Mbappe 'raring to go'

15:25 , Alex Young

Didier Deschamps says Kylian Mbappe is “raring to go” ahead of a potential return for France tonight.

The France captain has been training in a mask and played in an hour-long behind-closed-doors friendly on Saturday, in which he scored two goals.

“The bruise has gone down a lot”, said Deschamps of Mbappe’s fracture. “He’s getting used to the mask. He wants to play, he’s raring to go.

“We all know about Kylian’s qualities, and one of the reasons we weren’t able to hit the back of the net [against ­Holland] was maybe a lack of efficiency. Maybe the fact Kylian will be here will help us score goals and win the game. It is a huge advantage to have him.”

Head to head

15:15 , Alex Young

Poland last beat France in 1982, though four of the eight meetings since then have finished level.

France wins: 9

Poland wins: 3

Draws: 5

France vs Poland prediction

15:04 , Alex Young

France have certainly not been at their attacking best at Euro 2024 so far, with their only goal of the tournament coming through Maximilian Wober turning the ball into his own net.

Austria and the Netherlands have been tough opposition, though, and they should find this a more routine assignment, particularly if Mbappe is back in the side.

France to win, 2-0

Predicted lineups

14:57 , Alex Young

Predicted France XI: Maignan; Kounde, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernandez; Kante, Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Thuram, Mbappe

Predicted Poland XI: Skorupski; Bednarek, Dawidowicz, Kiwior; Frankowski, Slisz, Romanczuk, Zielinski, Zalewski; Urbanski, Lewandowski

Poland team news

14:52 , Alex Young

Poland, who have already been knocked out of the tournament, could welcome back Robert Lewandowski into the starting line-up.

The Barcelona forward missed their defeat to the Dutch before coming off the bench against the Austrians.

Krzysztof Piatek may then drop to the bench, while Bartosz Salamon is a doubt with an ankle injury.

France team news

14:45 , Alex Young

France are set to hand Kylian Mbappe a return to their starting line-up in tonight’s Euro 2024 group finale against Poland.

The striker has had to wear a protective mask after suffering a broken nose during his country’s opening win over Austria.

On a yellow card already after coming back on the pitch following his injury during that game in order to slow down proceedings, the Real Madrid-bound striker sat out of the draw with the Netherlands.

However, Didier Deschamps has described Mbappe as “raring to go” in a big indication that he will start in Dortmund.
