  • France: World Cup Analysis – Russia (2018)

    Posted by on January 18th,2018View

    France At The World Cup

    France has been a very successful team at the FIFA World Cup every 4 years. Although, the team has lifted the trophy only once, in 1998. In 2006, France finished the World Cup as runners-up. Just Fontaine is France’s leading goalscorer with 13 goals, all scored in the 1958 World Cup.

    Fact: Thierry Henry has played in 4 World Cups (1998-2010). More than any other French player.

    Group C Draw

    France is ranked 9th according to FIFA rankings. France is drawn in Group C for the World Cup 2018 group stage matches. The other teams in the group include Australia, Peru and Denmark. France should easily top the group and progress to at least the semi-finals this World Cup.  

    Expected Finish

    France should make it relatively easy to the semi-finals this World Cup. Germany and Brazil will take up the other vacant semi-final spots. The only lapse in the French squad will be their defense, which is the supposed weak link in the squad. The average age of most of the key players in the French squad is really young as well. Inexperience may also be a key factor that will restrict France from lifting the World Cup.

    Odds

    Bookies and bet makers have placed France to win the World Cup at 6/1. Only Brazil and Germany have better odds of winning the World Cup with their odds at 5/1.

    French Squad

    France has so many brilliant players that they can field two different squads, each squad capable of making it till the finals of Russia 2018.
