Meulentsteen Thumbs-Down France’s Form Ahead 2022 World Cup
Australia assistant coach, Rene Meulentsteen, has criticised Les Bleus of France’s form ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Meulentsteen believes that something isn’t quite right with the French squad as the tournament approaches.
“I went to the France vs Austria and Denmark vs France,” Meutelensen told talkSPORT.
“I’m really scared now, Denmark look really good. Really strong, well organised. Christian Eriksen was outstanding.
“France, I have to say, something isn’t right in that team and that squad. Something doesn’t click.
“I watched the Austria game and they [France] won it 2-0 thanks to mistakes from Austria and a moment of brilliance from Mbappe – which you can expect.
“But something is going on there. I don’t know.”
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be played between November 20 and December 18.
