France

So will France appear as the France of 1998 and 2006, or the one that failed completely in 2002 (first round exit)? Domenech recently called the French squad the next generation of football prospects, and he will try to mix them with the veteran stars that largely stayed in Zidane’s shadow. In any case, France should top group A, and not meet a real match until the quarter finals, and from there, as mentioned, everything is open.
