What Group Is France In?

While Franc is considered the strongest team in Group D — it would be difficult to say otherwise for the top European squad in FIFA world rankings — they won’t have a free path to advancement. Group D features teams ranked no worse than 28th (Poland). Netherlands (seventh) looks especially formidable, but France did dispose of them easily in qualifying.

Up to three teams can advance into the knockout phase of the Euro 2024 bracket. During the group stage, teams earn points for wins (three) and draws (one). Whichever two teams accumulate the most points in the group will advance. Additionally, the four highest-scoring No. 3 finishers will advance. So, if France finishes third, their fate depends on how they compare to the third-place finishers in the other groups.

How France Qualified for Euro 2024

Qualifying was a breeze for the French. They blew the doors off of Group B with a 7-0-1 record and a mammoth +26 differential. Only a 2-2 draw with Greece, when qualifying was already assured, stopped them shy of a perfect record. Aside from that game, the only goal the French conceded came in a 2-1 win over the Netherlands.

France Likely Starting Lineup

Here’s a look at France’s likely starting 11:

  • GK Mike Maignan
  • DF Ibrahima Konate
  • DF Jules Kounde
  • DF Theo Hernandez
  • DF Dayot Upamecano
  • MF Adrien Rabiot
  • MF Eduardo Camavinga
  • MF Aurélien Tchouaméni
  • FW Olivier Giroud
  • FW Antoine Griezmann
  • FW Kylian Mbappe

Notable Players

The highlight of the French team definitely comes up front. Olivier Giroud (131 caps, 57 goals), Antoine Griezmann (127 caps, 44 goals), and Kylian Mbappe (77 caps, 46 goals) make for a strong attacking group. Mbappe has been one of soccer’s biggest stars in recent international cycles, helping lead France to a World Cup victory in 2018 and another runner-up in 2022. He’s now ascended to captain at just age 25.

They’re backed by impressive depth, too, with Kingsley Coman, Marcus Thuram, Ousmane Dembele, and Randal Kolo Muani all available and perfectly in their depth. Each plays for a top-level club.

Elsewhere, France is similarly loaded with top talents. Players such as Jules Kounde, Ibrahima Konate, Adrien Rabiot, and Aurélien Tchouaméni play for Europe’s finest clubs and have already built some international experience while being on the right side of 30.

With so much top talent available, much of it in prime years, it’s no surprise France is considered one of the strongest teams in Euro 2024 odds.
