The team is really looking good... granted, competition wasn't great. But always hard against PTB teams; especially thugs like Iceland.

At the WC, believe it or not, Griezmann and Mbappe really hadn't figured out how to play with each other. Pavard was still very green with Varane figuring out how to help him.

Now, Mbappe and Griezmann understand each other like they've known each other for years while Pavard is far more confident since Varane is anticipating him now.

Giroud is actually scoring goals too lol.

And to think that Lucas, Dembele and Martial are injured while Lacazette and Ben Yedder can't make the team.

I personally feel that it's a disgrace that Lemar and Thauvin are keeping Laca ad Ben Yedder off the team. But that's just me maybe.

Kimpembe should not be chose over Laporte either.

Mbappe is sure not going to continue playing on the right. you can see in the way he behaves playing on the right, he doesnt like it. He has grown a lot in his positioning at PSG this season and when you try to stick him to a side in the NT, he is not comfortable with it anymore

Team is stacked top to bottom, morale is high, and they are very comfortable playing with each other. Right now, I can't see any other team winning Euros.

That's not who's keeping Laca and WBY out of the team; Lemar is an old school left-footed LW and Thauvin is a RW. In DD's mind, the three CFs are Giroud, Griezmann, and Mbappé.

I know.  And that's weird to me.  If Martial was the initial callup... Ben Yedder is far more similar to Martial than Lemar.  So how can you call up Lemar when Martial gets injured as opposed to Ben Yedder?

If Giroud goes down, you're forced to play Mbappe as a CF because you have no other option (i don't care that he thinks Griezmann can play there; he can't).  You're forced to move Mbappe.  Why not give yourself the option of another proven scorer like Laca?

That's my big issue.  We have no scoring firepower on the bench if we need it.

Lacazette is the 2nd best player to play upfront after Giroud. He is fantastic with his back to goal and really good at linking up play.

@RG. I think Deschamps wants to transition from Giroud to Mbappe as the central striker... that's why he's bringing in so many second strikers, wingers and AMs as opposed to other central strikers.

Mbappe's move to central striker at PSG is almost certainly going to become permanent too.

With that in mind, players like Martial, Coman, Dembele, Fekir, Lemar, Coman and Thauvin are a lot more important right now than Ben Yedder and Laca. Once Giroud is no longer there, then it opens up for those two.

camavinga is great.

digne looks like a player suddenly lol.  Carlo doing his magic at Everton.

Aouar...  a bit tense in his first start for France.  Playing timid.

Upameccano...  same as Aouar.  Seems nervous.

Tolisso...  a bit useless

Martial...  ok; not great

Giroud... loool.  double with a golasso.  He's going to become France's all time scorer at some point, which is shocking when you consider Papin, Platini, Kopa, Henry, Trezeguet, etc. 42 goals in 100 games.  Only behind Henry with 51.

You know what's even more shocking? Henry's tally.

51 is still a great record, but Henry is one of the best strikers in history, I really thought he would have more than just 51 goals.

Henry wasn't very good with France NT.  That's why he's literally an afterthought in terms of popularity with the French public... disappointing is a very mild way to put it.

Why?  When Zidane retired from NT in 2004 after the Euro, the NT was in disarray as Henry couldn't lead it.  Zidane was forced to come back to lead France to the world cup... where Henry actually cheated with that hand ball lol to get them in.

Once Zidane left for good after WC 2006, Henry again could not lead the team.

Just doesn't have a good NT record because he was so arrogant and did very little to back it up with NT.  His arrogance wasn't well perceived.
