Fearsome trio expected to start for France

France have one of the youngest teams at the World Cup, but Kylian Mbappe believes Les Bleus have what it takes to win the title in Russian Federation if they all stick together.

"He played the last World Cup, he played the Euros, he plays in a big club, he experienced his transfer to Manchester". Didier Deschamps is on the hot seat to deliver after failing two summers ago.

Keeping a shot-shy Ireland side scoreless is one thing, dealing with the heavyweights of the world is something else. Let's look at the question marks surrounding the team, and how the starting XI will look when they face Australia in their first group stage game. Pogba says he wants to be that man, but the Manchester United star will need to be more influential to assume a leadership in Russian Federation.

Giroud or Dembele with Griezmann and Mbappe in attack?

He does have the age old headache of too many attackers to pick from, but in truth, selecting a side behind them, that gets the best from everyone, is a tougher task. With Kante positioned as a holding midfielder, Pogba and either of Matuidi or Tolisso operate as box-to-box midfielders supporting an attacking trio of Giroud, Griezmann and Mbappe.

However, the teenager has allayed the initial fears ahead of their opening Group C game against Austrailia on Saturday.

Who should play in the opener?
They were also held by an unfancied Russian Federation in their first outing at Euro 2016, but Manchester United full-back Young insists the current crop are ready to make an early statement this time.

South Korea initially balked on the THAAD placement but ultimately allowed it past year despite the protests of local residents. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Russian Federation and North Korea.

In the end, France has a real shot to win it all this year. "There is no team like Italy from back in the day".

The whole fracas led to Domenech's sacking and France Football Federation president, Jean-Pierre Escalettes resigning in disgrace.

A potential semi-final clash against Brazil looms, but France have beaten them in their last three World Cup encounters in 1986, 1998 and 2006, and will be confident they can get past the five-time winners.

Five years down the line, as Les Bleus prepared for the Euros on home soil, another scandal erupted. The French coach apparently is happy that the player can focus on the game now.

To do that, the 38-year-old forward needs to score for the fourth consecutive World Cup.
