The 1998 Champions France begin their 2014 World Cup campaign against Honduras on Sunday night at the Estadio Beira Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre. The French national team were knocked out in the first round at the 2010 World Cup and they would be looking to erase the memories of 2010 as they take the field against a relatively weaker Honduras side.
France suffered a major blow just at the start of the tournament as the 2013 Balon d’Or finalist Franck Ribery was ruled out due to a back injury. However, France still have the lineup to beat a major team on their day. Players like Karim Benzema, Oliver Giroud, Paul Pogba are highly talented and can upset any defense in the World.
Honduras, on the other hand are highly unlikely to get past this group, but this World Cup will be a huge learning point for them. Any result for France other than a victory will feel like a loss to them, as they need to win this to have a strong chance of qualifying for the knockouts.
