France national football team is named to be the finest squad in international football. In this summer’s European Championship the team will attempt to repeat the feats of greats such as Zinedine Zidane and Didier Deschamps by winning the World Cup and Euros in that period. With the nearing of UEFA Euro 2020, we have noted a preview of France in Group F of the European Championship.
Anything other than champions it is difficult to imagine the France team, they’re stacked in every aspect and will remain for years. With eight victories, one draw, and one loss the qualification process was quite straightforward which provided them a spot in Group F. They’ve been in excellent form elsewhere, reaching the Nations League finals in October.
The team will be very similar to the one that won in Russia three summers ago. Hugo Lloris, the team’s goalkeeper and captain, will preserve his spot, as will Raphael Varane but his companion is unsure. This year Samuel Umtiti will be absent, therefore Presnel Kimpembe, Jules Koundé, or Clement Lenglet might take his position.
Antoine Griezmann’s form in 2021 has been encouraging while N’Golo Kanté and Paul Pogba are always there in midfield. This team has been world-class, and after a five-year exile, the surprise return of Karim Benzema just adds to their strength.
We expect the French team to reach at least the semi-finals, anything below that would be considered a failure. Didier Deschamps, a former player and coach, has a chance to make history by being the first coach to win both the World Cup and the Euros.
