France enters every major Football tournament with a genuine chance to win. They performed admirably in the 2014 World Cup reaching the knock-out stages as Group E winners before narrowly losing to the eventual winners Germany 1-0 in the quarter-finals. Their squad continues to develop and mature with each and every season giving young stars such as Paul Pogba, Lucas Digne, Raphael Varane, Antoine Griezmann and Anthony Martial the chance to gain more domestic and international experience.

How To Win At France Football Team Betting
All of France's matches since the 2014 World Cup, due to Le Bleus hosting Euro 2016, haven't been competitive as the host nation gains automatic qualification for the tournament. The team has, however, performed well enough in friendlies to suggest they remain a threat to any side. This should be noted when considering whether to bet on France as any issues could be hidden by the lack of competitive soccer.
France has won all of their friendlies, except for a 2-0 defeat to England, since June 2015. Some of the teams they have beaten include Germany, Russia and Portugal.
France are particularly solid in front of their home fans. During 2015 and leading up to the Euro 2016 tournament, France managed to score 21 goals in 10 matches so look out for value in the over 2.5 goals markets, particularly when France faces a side that does not boast a strong defence.
Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann provide the main attacking threat up front and are both proven goalscorers and proven performers at international level. If you prefer a bet with slightly better odds then take a look at the odds on the new generation of French talent like Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman or Manchester United's Anthony Martial.
Fringe players such as West Ham's Dmitri Payet and Leicester City's N'Golo Kante forced their way into the France squad after breakthrough seasons in the Premier League. Their emergence gives France an unexpected boost in squad depth.
The star player of the French side is midfielder Paul Pogba. France will reap the rewards if they utilise Pogba in his prefered role at the heart of the midfield, a role which saw Pogba win a place in the FIFA World XI of 2015. Pogba is one of the most sought after midfielders in the world with a transfer value in excess of £50 million and is spoken of in almost the same vein as Ronaldo or Messi, the world's best two players.
Many current French players don't have a lot of caps which might nudge the bookmakers into favoring other more experienced international sides. Playing at home, however, gives France a distinct advantage and this will certainly settle their young stars who already boast an abundence of talent and self-belief.
