The rollout of Euro 2020 features 24 teams throughout Europe, one of which is the French national team, the 2018 World Cup winners. Here's a profile of Didier Deschamps' squad.

The team that came from this Fashion City is undoubtedly awesome at the European and world level. How not? Three years ago, they were able to win the world title for the second time in the history of the national team.

The quality of Les Bleus is also in doubt because of its incredible combination of players. Call it Kylian Mbappe, the PSG starlet is known for his speed as well as his ball technique that entered the ranks of future generations.

Then there is N'Golo Kante, this cheap smiling player worth reckoning with for his prowess in midfield. Proof? Seen when Chelsea won the Champions League this season that can not be separated from the role and coach Thomas Tuchel.

In addition, there are still 24 other mainstay players coach Deschamps who will celebrate the euphoria of Euro 2020 later. Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur), Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona) and Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

Broadly speaking, the French national team conducts this quadrennial competition as a form of revenge. Quite reasonable considering they almost won in 2016 before being defeated by Portugal 0-1.

The reason France can win the Euros this time can not be separated from some slick results in international matches. They were able to overcome Kazakhstan (2-0), Bosnia (1-0), and Wales (3-0). They are also scheduled to face a tough opponent in the early days, namely the German national team.
