France head into this summers World Cup as one of the favourites to win the whole competition, Didier Deschamps men have a squad packed full of quality and head into the tournament having aced their qualifying group. Les Blues have only won the biggest prize in international football once before, back in 1998 so will be out to change that statistic this year.
They have one of the most talented squads in the whole competition and look set to go far in Russia this summer should they play to their full potential, especially considering the fact they have been drawn in a relatively weak group compared to most of the other favourites.
How did Les Blues fair in Qualifying?
Everyone expected France to sail through their World Cup qualifying group, and that’s exactly what they did. Winning seven, drawing two and losing just one game throughout the whole of their qualifying campaign clearly indicates just what a force the Frenchmen will be this summer.
Didier Deschamps men took twenty-three points from 10 matches, fending off the likes of Sweden, Holland, Bulgaria, Luxembourg and Belarus to secure spot in Group A, so will travel to Russia with some great momentum, confident in their chances of progression to the final stages of the competition.
