In World Cups, two meetings, the first in 1966 and the second in 1982, with two English triumphs.

In the World Cup hosted by England, striker Roger Hunt scored the two goals of the game, which eliminated France and put the team of the Charlton brothers (Jack and Bobby) and captain Bobby Moore on the way to the title, the only one in the English Cup.

In Spain, 40 years ago, the two countries debuted against each other, and once again England prevailed, winning with goals from Bryan Robson (2) and Paul Mariner. Gérard Soler scored for France captained by Michel Platini.

Both teams qualified from the group. The English stopped in the second phase and the French lost in the semifinal to West Germany, on penalties, and then to Poland in the dispute for third place.

In Eurocups, the advantage is French: a victory (2-1, with two goals from Zinédine Zidane, in 2004) and two draws (0-0 in 1992 and 1-1 in 2012).
