They join the likes of Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe, N’Golo Kante, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba, among others, in an already glittering squad of options for the French. Notably, Benzema was not part of the 2018 triumph.
The Barcelona legend told BolaVIP:
“For me the main favorite is France because they have a lot of players, a lot of talent, they are a very complete team, they have already been champions and they know the way perfectly.
France won the last World Cup in 2018 by beating Croatia 4-2 in the final in Russia.
