Les Bleus will go into the tournament as favourites.

France have been in fine form since their shock penalty shootout exit to Switzerland at Euro 2020. Les Bleus even reached the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar, where they narrowly lost to Argentina on penalties after a pulsating contest. Since that heartbreaking defeat, they have suffered only two losses – both coming against Germany in friendly matches.

Didier Deschamps’ side will face a stern test at Euro 2024, having been drawn in a challenging group alongside Poland, Austria, and the Netherlands. While their opponents pose a threat, France will be considered clear favorites to progress from the group stage.

All eyes will be on Kylian Mbappe, arguably the best player in the world currently. Days after completing his much-anticipated move to Real Madrid, Mbappé scored one goal and provided two assists in France’s opening friendly. He had a great pre-game appearance and will need to continue in a similar vein for Euro.
