France are fancied heading into Euro 2020, that’s without doubt. Their squad is laden with talent, from a dynamic midfield duo compiled of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante to an attacking trident of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema.
That’s not even including Ousmane Dembele, the big-money star that Barcelona bought to replace Neymar and has been enjoying a mini-renaissance at Camp Nou after a difficult beginning to his career in Catalonia. Griezmann plays with him at Barcelona and the pair are close, while Benzema leads the line at Real Madrid; Los Blancos have long been interested in bringing Mbappe to the Spanish capital, too.

Griezmann, seemingly obsessed with Football Manager, told Mbappe that he signed him for Newcastle for €134m. Mbappe didn’t seem to be too enamoured by the idea; “It’s not very warm there,” he said.
