They did it without even needing to play all of their meets. Unsurprisingly, France secured a ticket to the round of 16. But nothing is won yet.
To hope not to face the headliners of the competition from the first knockout match, the Blues must absolutely obtain a result against the Portuguese Seleção in Budapest. Three scenarios are still possible, one more favorable to the France team than the other two.
- If the Blues finish at the top of group F
In case of victory against the Portuguese selection tonight at 9 p.m., the Habs are sure to win first place in the group. This is also possible in the event of a draw and if Germany does not beat Hungary in the other meeting on Wednesday 23 June.

In which case, the Blues would meet Ukraine or Switzerland on Monday, June 28 at 9 p.m. in Bucharest, Romania.
- If the Blues finish second in group F
The France team will finish in second place in their group if they get a draw tonight and the Mannschaft win against Hungary on their side. If the Blues lose and the Hungarians win a draw or win against the Germans but without overtaking the Blues on goal difference.
In this hypothesis, France would face England, solid first in Group D, on Tuesday, June 29 at 6 p.m. in the lair of the Three Lions in London.
- If the Blues finish third in group F
The Habs will finish third in their group if they are defeated against the Portuguese and Germany wins against Hungary, or if they lose to Portugal and Hungary wins against the Germans with a goal- average higher than that of the Blues.

In this case, the French would possibly face two favorites of the competition in the round of 16. Either to Belgium, first in group B with three victories, on Sunday June 27 at 9 p.m. in Seville. Or in the Netherlands, also leaders of their group with 9 points, on Sunday June 27 at 6 p.m. in Budapest.
