France National Football Team history
While the '50s may have been a golden generation for French football, with French legends such as Just Fontaine, Raymond Koba, Jean Vincent, Maryan Wisnieksi and Thadée Cisowski all standing as admirable players of the generation, it is the era of legendary midfielder Zinedine Zidane- lovingly known as Zizou- that many remember when thinking of French Football! It is during his tenure that France won the 1998 Football World Cup against Brazil, on French soil!
After victory in the 2000 Euros and another football World Cup final in 2006, the French national team entered a period of decline culminating in France's awful showing at the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa. After the debacle of Domenech and the brief stewardship of Laurent Blanc, Deschamps led France to the Euro 2016 Final, falling to Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in extra time and then Football World Cup glory in Russia.
France National Football Team key players
France has no shortage of attacking talent and has an embarrassment of riches in front of goal. PSG's Kylian Mbappe and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele both made big money moves in the summer of 2017. Add to that the guile of Antoine Griezmann, the experience of Oliver Giroud and Paul Pogba running the show from the centre of midfield and you have a team that is capable of beating anyone.
