France may now be assured of playing the round of 16 of the Euro, the Blues have every interest in winning Wednesday against Portugal.
The Blues finally did not have to wait very long to validate their ticket for the eighth final of the Euro. Because if they did not know how to get it on the ground, Saturday, the fault of the draw conceded against Hungary (1-1), and could not count on Turkey to help them, Sunday , Denmark, Belgium and Austria have done what is necessary to allow the world champions to clinch their qualification on Monday without playing.

With four points on the clock, the France team is indeed guaranteed to be among the four best thirds who will take place in the final table. Third in groups B and C, Finland and Ukraine have indeed finished the group stage with only three points, thus making the Blues happy. But also from Sweden, Switzerland, England and the Czech Republic.
However, the Blues would be well inspired to win against Portugal on Wednesday for their last match in Group F. And not just to take their revenge, five years after their defeat against the Seleçao in the final of the Euro 2016. A success against Cristiano and others would also ensure them first place in their group and a much more favorable picture.
Evidenced by the potential opponents of the France team according to its final classification in Group F.
If France finishes first
The Blues will face a 3rd in a group, on Monday June 28 in Bucharest (9 p.m.). It will probably be Switzerland (A), or Ukraine (C), or even Finland (B).
If France finishes second
The task could be much more difficult since the men of Didier Deschamps will be opposed in this case to the first of the group D, on Tuesday June 29 at 6 p.m., at Wembley. That is to say to England, which would therefore have the enormous advantage of playing at home, or to the Czech Republic. For now, the Czechs are holding the rope and only need a draw against the Three Lions to keep pole.
If France finishes third
In this case, the Blues will play from Sunday. Either against the Netherlands at 6 p.m. in Budapest, or against Belgium, at 9 p.m. in Seville for a rematch of the semi-final of the last World Cup.
