    On paper they have the most stacked squad.

    Griezmann is best of the lot as well.

    Hopefully get him signed soon.

    Dont think their mid is anything spectacular really.

    Griezmann is probably one of the top 5 players in the world right now. He's much better than Neymar.

    He must've never heard of pressing. No other explanation.

    France aren't that good tbh. Their approach seems to be to sit back, keep shape, and try to do something on the counter with their fast players. Hardly anything special. Sure, Mbappe, Dembele, Griezmann, they can create danger, but any kind of attacking plan is just no there. I reckon a very good team will kick them out.

    The team is impressive.
    But with Deschamps as coach they won't win anything
    “I would love to have played at this club. I am envious of how well Guardiola's men can play. They are like a group of kids who play football in the street without rules. That is the best football, the most authentic, unfettered by tactics or schemes. Guardiola’s philosophy is helping to change the mindset of many tacticians and that is priceless.” Marco Van Basten

    He knows what he's doing.

    He got them to the finals in the Euros, but they slipped up at the end.

    Won't be surprised if they win.

    Impressive going forward, clumsy and unfocused in defense, if they sort out the brainfarts, they could go far, if not, Uruguay will knock them out.
    Loads of potential though, its clear to see.
