France’s Squad Depth Makes Them The Team To Beat

Deschamps Euro 2020 Squad is turning eyes and has fast become one of the early favourites picked by bookies to win all over the world this summer. The squad depth is showcasing great unison and performance. 

Nowadays it is so easy to find free bets that can help you maximise your winnings, it is essential for any punter wishing to bet on France’s squad depth, to ensure they find the best offers, from the many that are scattered all across the internet.

Deschamps has led France into national and international football since the 2018 win at the World Cup, defeating Croatia with a 4-2 score in the final match and round. France certainly has confidence in his ability to lead, and get things done just as they should be. It will be obvious that Deschamps will want to add further silverware to the cabinet of trophies that France have collected thus far, and with such a strong position with the squad, it is obvious it will not be that far of a result away within the Euros 2020. The 52-year old has not been shy about his wanting of another huge trophy, and has commented on how he believes France will come in strong this time round again too.

The Tottenham and France captain Hugo Lloris, will most likely begin as the number 1, but it has been made known that Deschamps has noted that position for the Marseille player Steve Mandanda, and Lilies Mike Maignan. Players Benjamin Pavard and Leo Dubois playing for Bayern Munich and Lyon, both have taken the position of the right-back, whereas fellow teammate at Bayern Munich’s Lucas Hernandez, alongside Lucas Digne who plays for Everton have taken the spots for left back on the pitch.

It is very clear to see how Deschamps is very spoilt for choice when it comes to making the decision on who will be taking the centre back positions for the national team, as he has Raphael Varane, Clement Lenglet, Kurt Zouma, Jules Kounde and Presnel Kimpembe. Certainly showing that they are quite the choices, and to select just one will be more than difficult, that is for sure. ESPN FC even released a social media post about how ‘frightening’ the team actually looks, when the line-up of who was playing where was announced. Surely, they are not the only ones that would think so and actually be slightly intimidated by the collation of warriors on the pitch. Karim Benzema, Mbappe-need we say more really? 

The squad’s midfield will have very familiar faces too like Paul Pogba who plays for Manchester United, in addition to the Chelsea star N’Golo Kante. The list does not even stop there though, Deschamps has Juventus Adrien Rabiot, Moussa Sissoko from Spurs and Corentin Tolisso from Bayern. Of course, decisions are not solely decided by players, it also takes into account the players’ dynamic amongst one another. The relationships of working together as a team must also be harmonious. This is obviously on Deschamps’ mind and he will be observing that during practice and training.

The wingers selection comes from a choice of Antoine Greizmann and Ousmane Dembele, who play for Barcelona. In addition to this, we have Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman, who could play out very well from the right wing. Many sports commentators including those on the BBC panel have commented on such formation and its characteristics from the playing star.

Many were shocked when Deschamp had mentioned Karim Benzema’s return to the national team, after he had been originally missing for a total of 6 years. This makes all question the competition that is afoot for Benzema, as he will be competing for a place within the team, and the top striker spot, which favourites like Oliver Giroud and Ben Yedder have been picked for too. It’s super clear the choice is large and it probably will work best with substitutions across match time, to get all players to have their shot at play time. Of course, it is never as simple as that though, is it?

It is obvious that Deschamps always reflects deeply about the squad selection, as when he was asked about Benzema’s return, he responded saying it was a long hard decision that took a lot of reflection. Making it all that obvious that the squad is one of the most powerful France has ever seen yet, and no decision was ever taken lightly on who was playing where.
