It’s no secret that the 2022 World Cup has been embroiled in controversy following allegations of bribery and corruption in the selection process.
Not only has the tournament been surrounded by controversy, but this will be the last World Cup to involve 32 national teams, as 48 countries will take part in the next tournament.
Basically, the hype surrounding this competition is mostly negative rather than positive. It often feels like politics are overshadowing the actual purpose of this competition.
But let’s look at the positives. In 2022, an incredible generation of French players will grace this tournament in Qatar.
I hear you. France’s Under-21 squad did fail to qualify for the European Championships for the sixth time in a row last time round, but the French looked dangerous against England back in November.
Celtic striker Moussa Dembele showed his class once again. as the likes of Lucas Hernandez and Jean Kevin Augustin looked sharp.
In five years time, this incredibly gifted bunch will integrate with the likes of Griezmann, Pogba and Kante.
If we’re predicting a line-up, you have to throw the likes of Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappé and PSG’s Adrien Rabiot into the mix, while another star from the Parc des Prince, Jean-Kévin Augustin, is touted from great things.
On paper, this France side could and should dominate from 2022 onwards.
To showcase their incredible strength in depth, we’ve put together three France teams that could feature at the 2022 World Cup.
