What have been World Cup results between England and France?

There’s only ever been two World Cup meetings between the pair since 1930.

The first came in 1966, where England saw off Les Bleus 2-0 on their way to lifting the Jules Rimet trophy.

Sixteen years later in ’82 it was the Three Lions who were victorious again, with Bryan Robson famously netting within 30 seconds in a 3-1 triumph.

In recent years results haven’t quite been as dominant for England, although the majority of meetings have been friendlies.

There was a 2-1 defeat in 2004 and then a 1-1 draw at Euro 2012, before a 2-0 victory at Wembley in the aftermath of the Paris attacks in 2015.

And the latest game was a friendly last June in Paris, where England were beaten 3-2 despite a Harry Kane brace.
