Defending World Cup champion France entered the tournament as one of the favorites, and having topped Group D, have escaped the “curse of the champions” (the last three World Cup champions were all eliminated in the group stage of the following tournaments). France vs. England (December 10, 2 p.m. ET) set up an exciting matchup of Kylian Mbappé against England keeper Jordan Pickford and England’s Harry Kane against keeper Hugo Lloris. Les Bleus emerged victorious with a 2-1 victory, setting up a semifinal against Morocco, which it won 2-0. France faced Lionel Messi and Argentina in the World Cup final, which the Argentinians won in dramatic fashion on penalties after the game finished 3-3 after extra time.

Star players in the France World Cup team

For this edition of the World Cup, the French team will have to do without star striker Karim Benzema, as the Real Madrid and Ballon d’Or winner was injured on the cusp of the tournament. Instead, the reigning World Cup champions will depend on the talents of forward Kylian Mbappé, goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris, and the likes of Marcus Thuram, who currently plays for Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany, has been picked to add firepower to Les Bleus on their quest to repeat as champions.

Who is France’s head coach?

Former player Didier Deschamps has been the head coach of France’s national team since 2012. As a player, he swiftly developed into a formidable defensive midfielder, winning the 1993 Champions League with Marseille. At Juventus, he appeared in four straight European finals, most notably the 1996 Champions League, and won three Serie A titles. His transition to coach has led to stints managing in Monaco, Juventus, and Marseille before becoming France’s national team coach. Under his leadership, Les Bleus reached the World Cup quarterfinals in Brazil in 2014 and the final of Euro 2016. Two years later, Deschamps successfully guided the French to victory over Croatia in the World Cup final in Russia, winning 4-2.

France national team strengths & weaknesses

What will the defending World Cup winner France do in Group D in 2022? We predict that the Blues will face some challenges in Qatar.


With Mbappé in the team, France is likely to score many goals to see off Group D opponents Australia and Tunisia. Though Denmark could prove tricky, the depth of solid defenders in the French squad should be enough to keep Christian Eriksen and his cohort at bay, while the attackers get to work seeking the winning goals. How far Les Bleus can go into the knockout rounds is the million-dollar question.


Didier Deschamps’ side will need to be extra cautious in their game against a plucky Denmark. There should be no question about France or Denmark’s ability to advance to the Round of 16—but a more favorable draw against the Group C runner-up will probably mean avoiding Argentina and Lionel Messi.
