Argentina's beleaguered head coach Jorge Sampaoli warned of the dangers posed by upcoming opponents France, ahead of their second round match in Kazan on Saturday. Labelling Les Bleus as 'dangerous', Sampaoli listed their strengths as: «strong characters, solid defenders, great at winning the ball back, quick counter-attack, which can produce some discomfort for us with their sheer speed of... Еще transition from defence to attack, and Giroud up front». Argentina finished second in Group D thanks to a late winner over Nigeria. Despite finishing unbeaten and top of Group C, France looked unconvincing in the early stages of the tournament. Two international footballing heavyweights will go head-to-head in the Kazan Arena on Sunday, June 30, for a place in the quarter-finals.
