England vs South Africa

© REUTERS/Siphiwe Sibeko Rugby Union – England training England have handed a first start to New Zealand-born forward Brad Shields as a replacement for Chris Robshaw at flank, while flyhalf Danny Cipriani is on the bench for the crucial second test against South Africa in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

The selection of Shields in the squad for the three-match tour had drawn some criticism as the 27-year-old has never played club rugby in England but qualified to represent the country through his parents.

He earned the first cap off the bench in the thrilling 42-39 loss to the Springboks at Ellis Park last weekend and now gets a chance from the start in one of two changes to the run-on XV by coach Eddie Jones that also sees Joe Launchbury return at lock for the ineffective Nick Isiekwe.

“Based on South Africa’s likely selection of an extra lineout jumper we have decided to start with Brad Shields, which improves our lineout. It is tough on Chris Robshaw as he has been an outstanding player for us but I know he will bounce back,” Jones said in a media release from England Rugby on Thursday.

Launchbury has recovered from a calf injury that had kept him out of the first test, while Cipriani could play his first test since 2015.

“Danny Cipriani will come onto the bench as we are looking for something a little bit different to finish the game, which he can bring. He’s been training well and doing everything that has been asked of him,” Jones said.

England have lost their last four test matches but Jones believes the good work they have put into training this week can see them end that barren run.

“The way the team have come together has been superb. (Captain) Owen Farrell, with a number of the senior players, has really moulded the squad together. They are working hard to improve their game to make sure we win.”

Coverage: Watch on BBC One Scotland (repeated ‘as live’ at 10:00 BST)& BBC Sport website; text commentary on BBC Sport website

Stuart Hogg will captain Scotland for the first time against the USA.

Head coach Gregor Townsend makes 12 changes from the team that started last weekend’s 48-10 win over Canada.

Scrum-half George Horne and number eight Matt Fagerson make their debuts and are joined by their respective older brothers Peter and Zander.

Jamie Bhatti, George Turner, Adam Hastings, Lewis Carmichael and Luke Hamilton will also make their first international starts in Houston, Texas.

Tour captain Stuart McInally remains injured and Grant Gilchrist, who the led the side in Edmonton, drops to the bench, with full-back Hogg taking on the responsibility for his 61st cap.

The three players retaining their starting places are lock Ben Toolis, Byron McGuigan and Blair Kinghorn, who moves to the wing to accommodate Hogg.

The Fagerson and Horne siblings, who all play for the Glasgow Warriors, become the 48th and 49th brothers to play for Scotland, while it is the eighth time that two sets of brothers have been on the field at the same time.

Townsend said: “We always planned to play as much of the squad as possible on this tour and we also deliberately picked more Edinburgh players in the first game because their season finished earlier.

“Now we welcome most of the Glasgow Warriors contingent into the team. On top of that, there are seven players making their first starts for the country, which is really exciting, and we are looking forward to them going out and grabbing this opportunity.

“The USA have won their last six games and scored a lot of points in the process. They’ve beaten two teams that have already qualified for the Rugby World Cup – Uruguay and Russia – and put 60 points on both of them.

“They are definitely improving as a team and are playing with a lot of confidence.

“You can see in the way they attack and defend that they are well coached, added to which there are some exceptional individuals that offer running threats throughout their side, so this will be a real test for us on Saturday.”

Scotland: Hogg (Glasgow Warriors), Kinghorn (Edinburgh), Grigg (Glasgow Warriors), P Horne (Glasgow Warriors), McGuigan (Sale Sharks), Hastings (Glasgow Warriors), G Horne (Glasgow Warriors), Bhatti (Glasgow Warriors), Turner (Glasgow Warriors), Z Fagerson (Glasgow Warriors), Carmichael (Edinburgh), Toolis (Edinburgh), Swinson (Glasgow Warriors), Hamilton (unattached), M Fagerson (Glasgow Warriors).

New Zealand vs France

New Zealand vs France in the first of three clashes with the opening Test set to be staged at Eden Park in Auckland (kick-off 8.00am).France will go in search of a first win over New Zealand since 2009 when they go head to head at Eden Park on Saturday night. They face a formidable challenge against an All Blacks side who are not only world champions and the world’s No 1-ranked side, but also unbeaten at their traditional home since 1994.

France may take some comfort from the fact they were the last visiting side to taste victory at Eden Park when the “try from the end of the world” by Jean-Luc Sadourny carried them to a famous 23-20 victory.
The stadium also played host the 2011 Rugby World Cup final when the hosts claimed a controversial 8-7 victory and with it the sport’s biggest prize for the first time since 1987.

Check out our preview of their latest match-up…

New Zealand: WLWWW

The All Blacks rounded out a bruising 2017 – that included the drawn series with the British & Irish Lions – with another unbeaten end-of-year tour that saw them account for France, Scotland and Wales.

Earlier in the year they also secured yet another Rugby Championship title with six straight victories in the battle for southern hemisphere supremacy, but they let their guard slip in the third and final Bledisloe Cup clash of the year when Australia claimed a much-needed win.

Unsurprisingly, they took out the Team of the Year honour at the World Rugby awards where Beauden Barrett and Rieko Ioane claimed the Player of the Year and the Breakthrough Player of the Year awards respectively.

France: LLWWL

A draw with Japan in their last outing of 2017 proved to be costly for coach Guy Noves, who was relived of his duties at the turn of the year having secured just seven victories in his 21 games in charge.

Former Italy coach Jacques Brunel took over for the Six Nations but he failed to inspire an immediate return to winning ways with his side going down to Ireland and then Scotland in their opening Six Nations clashes.

They stopped the rot with victory over Italy in Marseille and followed that up by heaping woe on England in Paris the following weekend.

The French rounded out their Championship campaign with a one-point defeat to Wales in Cardiff where they were left to rue a succession of costly missed kicks.

Last meeting

France 18-38 New Zealand, Stade de France, Paris, November 11, 2017

The All Blacks claimed their 11th straight victory over Les Bleus in Paris at the end of last year where Waisake Naholo was the tormentor-in-chief with two tries.

Dane Coles, Naholo, Ryan Crotty and Sam Cane all crossed in the first half to put New Zealand in control with Beauden Barrett converting all four scores.

Teddy Thomas crossed for France in the opening period and a penalty try after the break fuelled hopes of an unlikely turnaround. Thomas had a second score ruled out by the TMO before Naholo set the seal on the win with his second try of the night.

The last time the two sides met in New Zealand was in New Plymouth in 2013 when it was a much closer affair. A first-half score from Ben Smith and a late try from Barrett eventually propelled the hosts to a 24-9 win and a 3-0 series victory.

New Zealand – Sam Whitelock. The All Blacks have long relied on a leadership group rather than any one individual but but you can still expect Whitelock to set the tone against the French.

He led the side for the first time against Wales on the end-of-year tour and will continue in the role with Kieran Read sidelined following back surgery and having recovered from a troubling concussion himself.

With some concern about the lack of discipline being shown by some All Blacks on Super Rugby duty, Whitelock will be charged with ensuring that his side do not offer their rivals any easy points or collect any cards – a key work-on identified by Hansen in recent weeks.

France – Mathieu Bastareaud. With regular skipper Guilhem Guirado rested for the series, Bastareaud is expected to be handed the captaincy and the responsibility of rallying a squad that has been ravaged by injury.

Jacques Brunel: “This is the ultimate opportunity for us to make a final review of the squad and to see new players join the France group before this pre-World Cup season begins.

“Some players in this group had this opportunity and seized it and are still with us. During this tour, others can come back or take their chance because the upcoming season will see the group tightening … in anticipation of the Rugby World Cup at Japan.”

New Zealand: 15 Jordie Barrett, 14 Ben Smith, 13 Anton Lienert Brown, 12 Ryan Crotty, 11 Rieko Ioane, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 Aaron Smith; 1 Joe Moody, 2 Codie Taylor, 3 Owen Franks, 4 Sam Whitelock (c), 5 Scott Barrett, 6 Liam Squire, 7 Sam Cane, 8 Luke Whitelock.

Match preview:

The June series kicks off as the All Blacks look to defend their incredible record at Eden Park against France in Game 1 of a three-match series. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 5:35pm (AEST).

French rugby is improving under their new coach, Jacques Brunel.

Known for running hot and cold, Brunel has turned France into one of the most effective defensive units in world rugby.

The early benefits of this were seen in the Six Nations, with a good win against England, while they were actually leading as the final hooter sounded against champions Ireland.

Sadly, the French will be hampered by some injuries to key players. Fans won’t get to see the likes of skipper Guilhem Guirado, Virimi Vakatawa, Francois Trinh-Duc, Yoann Huget, Maxime Machenaud, Lionel Beauxis or Brice Dulin – some significant talent missing.

Morgan Parra will bring experience and skill though, as he returns at #9, and the French have some real danger players including Teddy Thomas, who is able to score from anywhere and the All Blacks will need to make sure they don’t switch off for a second.

For the All Blacks, Kieran Read and Sonny Bill Williams are big omissions. SBW hasn’t had the season that he’d have wanted so far thanks to injury but he’s a proven performer.

The selection of Jordie Barrett at fullback, moving Ben Smith to the wing, gives some indication that Steve Hansen is expecting plenty of aerial bombardment. Jordie is tall and solid under the high ball and Smith is ever dependable.

The French will have to play the game of their lives to trouble the home side.

After a bit of a rocky 2017, the All Blacks will want to impress from the first whistle. A scary prospect.

New Zealand to win by 18.

Portugal vs Spain live streaming: Match preview

The fourth successive match of the World Cup between Portugal and Spain is the crème brûlée of the group stages this year.

Spain vs Portugal is a competitive fixture enhanced by the various threads that weave this tale.

The famous Iberian derby of Spain vs. Portugal holds host to one of the oldest international football rivalries transcending football into a battle of economic and territorial supremacy as the two countries border wrestle for control on the Western frontier of Europe.

Portugal seized Spain’s Euro championship title two years ago after Spain had won it back-to-back.

Julen Lopetegui

The game’s magnitude will be further fuelled by ground shaking controversial sacking of Spain manager Julen Lopetegui in vain of the teams effort’s to prevent it, following the announcement of him as the new Real Madrid manager.

Julen had gotten the Spanish killing machine renovated, invigorated and fuelled for world domination once again. But all that clarity is now just fog and uncertainty as we are forced to watch the story unfold as Fernando Hierro takes lead of the team.

Portugal will hope that this controversy flings the Spanish into disarray rather than unite them in an act of camaraderie.


Portugal come into this tournament as reigning European champions. Confidence will be overflowing under the inspirational leadership of Cristiano Ronaldo who has a throne in the pantheon of legends.

With Ronaldo’s infectious aura and the tactical nous of Fernando Santos who has managed all of Portugal’s big three in Benfica, Porto and Sporting that they can stand two feet taller.

Portugal will likely set up with their usual 4-4-2 with Ronaldo and Andre Silva likely to square up with Spain’s fearsome defensive pairing of impregnable Ramos and Pique.

Portugal will look to shut down Spanish attacks via the dominating William Carvalho. He has the unenviable job of muzzling Iniesta, Silva, Isco and Thiago. Ahead of him Portugal will look to harness Bernardo Silva’s magic as he looks to zigzag through the hordes, and link up with Ronaldo, Guedes or Gelson Martins in space.

Bernardo, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Mario’s ball retention and ability to break the lines against Spain’s press and overload of the centre of the pitch will be key to avoiding isolation of Ronaldo and a disconnect between midfield and attack.

Portugal have struggled in their stabilisation of their defence, never quite figuring out their strongest backline. But with Pepe as the primary pillar, Portugal can have some confidence that they can withstand the barrage of probing they will succumb to the Spanish team. They will need to remain focused and organised.


Spain has found a new groove and absolutely no team can match them for technical quality in the tournament.

Spain with their 4-3-3 will overload the middle of the pitch, dominating possession whilst bombarding fullbacks Odriozola and Alba will provide the width.

Magicians David Silva and Isco will drift inwards where they will look to pick up the ball and open up the play.

Busquets will shield the back four, whilst recycling possession to elite dictators ahead of him.

If Spain are unable to break down the Portuguese backline you can expect them to launch Asensio off the bench to add some more pace and width where he will offer another dimension to their attack.

You can expect Pepe and likely Ruben Dias to have their hands full with Diego Costa, who will add a ferocity and aerial threat.

If the Portuguese manage to withstand all that ammunition, and manage to bypass Spain’s iconic backline, they still have to beat David De Gea.

Spain vs Portugal is sure to be the highlight of the group stages. It is a game to both read, watch, listen, smell and taste as you manage to absorb all that drama that football encompasses whilst it aims to tantalize all your senses.

Open your pores and sponge in the delight!

Brazil vs. Switzerland facts 

Brazil and Switzerland’s only previous World Cup encounter was on Brazilian soil in 1950, it ended 2-2.

Brazil have won the World Cup more times than any other team, lifting the trophy in 25 percent of the tournaments played so far (5 out of 20). They are the last team to win backto-back World Cups (1958, 1962).

Brazil are also the only team to have taken part in every single World Cup since 1930; this will be their 21st appearance in as many tournaments.

Brazil are unbeaten in their last 12 World Cup group games, winning 10 (D2), their last defeat in the group phase dating back to 1998 against Norway. In fact, Brazil have topped their group (Round 1) in every single World Cup since 1982 and last failed to progress past the first round in 1966.

Brazil have also won 16 of their last 18 opening games at the World Cup (D2). The last time they lost their first game in the tournament was in 1934 against Spain (1-3).

Meanwhile, Switzerland are unbeaten in their opening game in each of their last four appearances, winning the last two (v Spain in 2010, Ecuador in 2014).

Switzerland have qualified for their 11th World Cup, knocking out Northern Ireland in the play-offs. It’s their fourth in a row, which equals their longest run of appearances in the tournament (4 from 1934 to 1954).

Switzerland last reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 1954, when the tournament was played on home soil. Since then, they’ve never progressed past the second round.

Switzerland have topped their group only once previously at the World Cup, it was in 2006. That was the year they became the only team not to concede a single goal at a World Cup (4 games, 0 goal conceded).

Switzerland won all bar one of their games in the regular qualifying phase for Russia 2018 (W9 L1), the only exception coming against Portugal away.

Xherdan Shaqiri has been directly involved in five of Switzerland’s last six goals at major tournaments (4 goals, 1 assist). He’s also the last player to score a hat-trick at the World Cup (v Honduras, 25 June 2014).

Neymar was involved in five of Brazil’s 11 goals at the last World Cup (4 goals, 1 assist). He was also involved in more goals than any other player in the CONMEBOL qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup (6 goals, 8 assists).

Germany vs Mexico


Germany is the reigning World Cup champion, sure, but star midfielder Toni Kroos also has declared the 2018 team is “maybe even better” than 2014, particularly when it comes to its work on the ball.

The 2014 championship was the payoff of a cycle that began with a young group featuring Philip Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski, which reached the semifinals in 2006 and 2010, losing each time to the eventual World Cup champ.

That group has retired, either from international competition or altogether, but their influence has helped unleash a renaissance for their national team.

Mexico has had some hard luck in World Cup draws, including being grouped with host Brazil four years ago and with France, Uruguay and host South Africa in 2010. But Mexico has gotten a positive result in five consecutive openers — four victories, one draw — and reached knockout play in each of the past six World Cups.

Germany vs. Mexico facts

There is a common belief that national team managers function best when they are limited to a single World Cup cycle. Joachim Low has been in charge of Germany since 2006, succeeding Jurgen Klinsmann. He has coached in five previous major tournaments (World Cup or European Championship), reaching the semifinal round each time. His overall record is 106 wins, 25 losses and 30 draws.

Rafa Marquez, who headed in the goal late in the first game of the final round of CONCACAF qualify to start the U.S. slide toward missing the World Cup, is on the roster for his fifth World Cup. He captained the side in each of the previous four. He has made 144 appearances for Mexico, which is tied for 32nd among all world players. One of those tied with him is teammate Andres Guardado.

No team has won consecutive World Cups since Brazil in 1958 and 1962. The recent record for defending champions is not great. Three of the past four defending champions failed to advance beyond the group stage, and those teams earned a composite record of 5 wins, 5 losses and 1 draw. Italy (2010) and France (2002) failed to win a game. None since Brazil (1998) got as far as the semifinals.

Mexico hasn’t reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup since 1986, when the tournament was held in Mexico. They lost in that round to Germany, on penalty kicks following a scoreless draw in the northern city of San Nicolas.

Thomas Muller ranks No. 8 in career World Cup goals with 10. More than 26 percent of his national team goals have come in the biggest tournament. Of the 13 players in the top eight positions in all-time World Cup goals, only France’s Just Fontaine, West Germany’s Helmut Rahn and Peru’s Teofilo Cubillas scored a higher percentage of their national team goals at the World Cup.

Germany is participating in its 17th consecutive World Cup. Only Brazil (21 in a row, or every World Cup ever staged) has a longer streak.

Mexico has only beaten Germany once in 11 meetings. They met last year in the Confederations Cup, and Germany earned a 4-1 victory despite fielding a side that did not include Muller, Ozil, Boateng, Hummels, Reus or Kroos.

Mexico is the only team to qualify for 14 World Cups or more without winning the tournament.

Peru Vs Denmark 2018 World Cup Preview

Two times Copa America winners finished FIFA World Cup 1930 in top 8 and also reached the quarterfinal round 1978. It’s a pretty decent performance by the South American team in their previous 4 attempts. Denmark also did not reach the further quarterfinal in 4 World Cups they played.

Peru entered into this campaign as winners of OFC vs CONMEBOL play-off round on 15 November 2017. UEFA side Denmark booked a place for the finals as winners of European qualifiers. Both teams have everything that they need to qualify for the round of 16 but other two sides France and Australia could make it difficult for them.

As only two teams will advance to the next round so it is must game for both teams because France and Australia are not going to give change to their group rivals.


Having experience of 2010 World Cup, Denmark will use it against their first rivals. Peru is making comeback after 36 years that means they have a fresh squad without World Cup experience.

Prediction: Peru: 2 – Denmark: 3
