“We have seven musketeers in attack. There is enough firepower.”, welcomed the French, who finds it normal that Karim Benzema is back after nearly six years of exile. “If you are one of the best players in Europe then you have your place in the national team.

France will open their European campaign with a clash against Group F heavyweights Germany at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Tuesday evening. The only problem threatening to derail France for the moment is the growing tension between Mbappé and Giroud following their victory against Bulgaria (3-0).
