France are struggling with an embarrassing relegation from League A to the Nations League and must avoid defeat against Austria to avoid that fate.
The reigning world champions had a disastrous start to their Group A1 campaign in June, picking up two points from four matches.
That left them bottom of the pile heading into September’s doubles game against Austria and Denmark, two points behind third-placed Austrians.
When the two sides met in Vienna in June, they played out a 1-1 draw after Kylian Mbappe saved a draw for Les Bleus with a late equalizer to nullify Andreas Weimann’s first-half opener. time.
Austria’s only win so far was impressive, a 3-0 opening matchday triumph over Croatia.
But they couldn’t continue, as their draw with France was sandwiched by two defeats against Denmark.
As the 2022 World Cup approaches, France are hoping to get back to their form as soon as possible.
Boss Didier Deschamps has plenty of injury problems to contend with as he forms his France squad for the 2022 World Cup.
Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba, Ibrahima Konaté, Lucas Hernandez, Theo Hernandez, N’Golo Kante, Presnel Kimpembe, Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman, Adrien Rabiot, Boubocar Kamara and Lucas Digne are all absent.
Their absences will provide opportunities for others, however – AC Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan is set to earn his fifth cap, while Real Madrid’s Aurélien Tchouameni could form a new midfielder with debutant Youssouf Fofana from Monaco.
At the other end of the experience spectrum, Olivier Giroud is back in the fold and could start ahead a week before his 36th birthday.
He is three goals behind France’s all-time top scorer, Thierry Henry, who has 51 goals to his name.
For Austria, Salzburg full-back Andreas Ulmer is ruled out after catching a stomach ache, although he could recover in time for their final game against Croatia.
The Swede Andreas Ekberg will be the referee of the France-Austria match.
France versus Austria is played at the Stade de France in Paris.
Croatia will host Denmark at the same time on Thursday.
Then Croatia visit Austria and Denmark host France on Sunday, September 25, both at 7:45 p.m.

If you’re out of the country for a series of Premier League fixtures, your domestic on-demand services unfortunately won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, all you have to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
