Who is their key player?
The French will look to complete the 2018 World Cup triumph and make up for the disappointment of the last Euros when they failed in the final hurdle at home against a stubborn Portugal.
Key to those hopes is Mbappe, 22, the PSG striker who shone in the last World Cup when he was still a teenager.
Mbappe averages nearly one goal per game for his club and has been compared to Thierry Henry by no less authority than Arsene Wenger.
Will the striker be able to win two victories in his first two international tournaments? You wouldn’t bet against it.
What is the full team?
