While the Experts(France) have just lost Luka Karabatic, the match against Norway is looming. The latter is the main threat to the Blues in their pool which aim to finish in first place. Norway beat France only twice in a World Championship, the last in 1961. The last match between the two teams dates back to the 2016 European Championship: Norway had blocked the road to the Blues (29- 24).

The Nordic country has in its ranks a player bearing the colors of a club of the French championship: Ole Erevik, (Pays d'Aix), recalled Saturday in the scandinavian squad. A second, Sander Sagosen, will arrive next summer at the PSG. However, no French international player has ever played in Norway.France is clearly favorite to finish first in the group.
