French National Football Team

The French National Football Team, known as “Les Bleus,” has a rich and illustrious history in international football. Established in 1904, the team is governed by the French Football Federation (FFF). France’s first major success came in 1984 when they won the UEFA European Championship on home soil, led by iconic midfielder Michel Platini. This triumph was followed by an impressive victory in the 1998 FIFA World Cup, also hosted by France, where the team, featuring stars like Zinedine Zidane and Thierry Henry, defeated Brazil 3-0 in the final. Zidane’s two headers in the final and Emmanuel Petit’s goal in stoppage time secured France’s first World Cup trophy, solidifying their place among football’s elite.

In the 21st century, the French national team continued to achieve significant success. They reached the World Cup final in 2006 but lost to Italy in a penalty shootout. The pinnacle of their recent achievements came in 2018, when they won their second FIFA World Cup in Russia, with a 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final. Under the management of Didier Deschamps, who captained the 1998 team, players like Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann, and Paul Pogba played crucial roles in this triumph. Additionally, France won the UEFA Nations League in 2021, further demonstrating their consistency and dominance in international football. The team’s ability to continually produce world-class talent and compete at the highest levels underscores its prestigious position in global football.
