France v New Zealand RECAP | World Cup

READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup opening match between hosts France and New Zealand at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis.


Both teams are expected to get out of Pool A, which also features Italy, Namibia and Uruguay, but a strong performance and a good result in the opener could set the tone for a successful World Cup campaign.

As hosts and one of the favourites to win the tournament, France will have a big spotlight on them, especially since they came so close to winning it in the past.
