Key Player: Griezmann
Last World Cup Finish: Quarter Final
After a few years in the wilderness of International Football, France have been building up a reputation as a force to be reckoned with over the past 4 years. After disappointing in the World Cups in 2010 (who can forget their infamous strike?) and 2014 they have shown signs that they are back to their best. Finalists in the 2016 Euros, France will be one of the favourites in the upcoming World Cup in Russia.
If one team has the depth required to get through a tournament like this, it is France. With at least two top quality players available in every position on the pitch, they will be ready for any eventuality. Their key player Griezmann is currently in great form following on from scoring in the Europa League final, they have their super sub Giroud who is always ready to make an impact from the bench and when they have a midfield with the creativity of Pogba and defensive acumen of N’golo Kante, they have as good a chance as anybody to lift the World Cup.
They have a number of world-class players who aren’t even on the plane such as Arsenal striker Lacazette and four-time Champions League winner Karim Benzema, which shows just how good this France team are.
