Kylian Mbappe was among the scorers as France secured a 4-2 victory against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup final.

The Paris Saint-Germain hotshot is set to spearhead the team in Qatar but it has been far from smooth sailing for the French since adding a second star to their crest.

Didier Deschamps’ team crashed out of the 2020 European Championship at the last-16 stage after a penalty shootout defeat to Switzerland.

They went on to top their World Cup qualification group but their form has taken a turn for the worse in this calendar year, managing a solitary victory from their six UEFA Nations League matches to narrowly avoid relegation from the top tier.

France have been drawn into Group D at the 2022 World Cup alongside Australia, Denmark and Tunisia and will expect to progress as the winners which would set up a last-16 tie against the runner-up from Group C featuring Argentina, Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia.

If they were to progress from that tie then they would face England in the quarter-finals were the Three Lions to top Group B.
