Do France have what it takes to go all the way at the World Cup?

In recent years the French football team seem to either be very hot or very cold when it comes to world cups. In 1998 they were red hot and managed to win the tournament on their own back yard and in 2006 they got to the finals and lost to Italy in the finals, however in 2010 they failed to get out of the group stages and were a complete embarrassment. Which side will arrive in Russia in June 2018? For the best world cup tips click on this link and see what the panel of experts say Frances chances are. I personally feel like France have a world class squad this year with very exciting young players who are in the peak of their careers.

The players have the talent and the ability to win the world cup, it will be more about the attitude and the vibe in the camp which may determine their outcome. The French players have big egos and that usually causes many internal issues with fighting amongst each other and it usually creates a bad aura which can destroy their chances. On the other side of the spectrum, they have world beaters in their side with players such as Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid, Paul Pogba from Manchester United, Mpabbe from PSG and many other superstars in their squad that will be hungry for success.

The depth of their squad will be a massive positive as they will have to play a maximum of 7 games in 6 weeks if they are to make it all the way to the finals. With their strong squad they should be able to give most of their players an opportunity to get some game time in the competition. The French team have a very balanced side with a very solid defence and goal keeper with players such as Lloris, Varane, Umtiti and Mendy –  a brilliant midfield pack consisting of Pogba, Thomas Lemar, Kingsly Coman and Blaise Matuidi and upfront they have the power trio of Griezmann, Mbappe and Giroud. This side will be a match for anyone on their day.

With their pace and skill in attack they should be able to battle their way into the later stages of the cup. The French will be dreaming of the magnificent night they had in France in 1998 when they lifted the trophy and will be hoping to emulate that in Russia come June 2018.
