Club History

France is one of the marquee teams heading into this year’s World Cup. Few sides have as much talent throughout their teams as the French. Didier Deschamps is spoilt with the options at his disposal. The team finished second at the Euro 2016 tournament, losing to Portugal in the final. It is difficult to find a weakness in Deschamps’ team. The attack is exciting and the team’s midfield is made up of certified stars. However, Deschamps still is building the team into a side that can win every time out. Ranked ninth in the world, France need to find consistency to win its second Jules Rimet Trophy.
