For the love of the game and world cup glory 32 of the best teams have gathered in Russia. Today, we briefly look at these teams. These are my opinions on each team. Today we profile the French team.

France have an embarrassment of talent at their disposal;

  • In defense, they have the Real Madrid choice of Varane
  • in midfield they have the most expensive player in Paul Pogba
  • In attack, they have the UEFA cup winner Antoine Griezmann

For this generation to be remembered, then they would have to win something. Last 2 years they missed their chance in the final against Portugal. They would want to go one better in this World Cup and win it.

Their coach has won the World Cup as a player. In fact he was the captain of that all-conquering side from France 98. However winning it as the manager of his national team is a quite different task.

Likely hero

In Kante, they have a gem of a defensive midfielder.

 

Achilles’ heel

Can this talented team keep it together against teams just as strong as they are?
