After breaking the world cup champions curse, France will be hoping to continue their trophy defence when they take on Poland in the Round of 16.

Whilst France confirmed their group stage escape after just two games, a shocking defeat to Tunisia will still linger on the minds of Les Blues fans. 

Poland's biggest scare came in the last round of the group stages as well. When Mexico finally found their shooting boots and beat Saudi Arabia, only goal difference sent Poland through behind Argentina. 

Who will come out on top as Kylian Mbappe and Robert Lewandowski go head to head?

Here's how you can watch all the action on TV and via stream online in Canada.
