France Thread

Brazil did it in ‘58 and ‘62 and Italy in ‘34 and ‘38

I think everyone can see why Giroud was selected ahead of Lacazette.
There are enough players in there to do what Lacazette does. Giroud offers a different option.

Plus Giroud has always performed well for France


#83

Or white guys.


#84

:arteta:


#85

I don’t get it, lol :see_no_evil:


#86

Ozil probably won’t even play anyway. Isn’t he gonna be fasting or whatnot?

Ironically all this “crying wolf” he’s been doing about being sick recently might just come back and bite him in the arse


#87

Ramadan ends at the start of the world cup, plus footballers get an exemption anyway


#88

When did Mohammed add that exemption into Quran?


#89

Hahahaha :rofl:


#90

It’s Muhammad.

And travelling is a valid exemption from fasting although there are different interpretations of it.


#91

Yep and it didnt stop Pele being part of a third winning squad in 1970.


#92

I was just completing the list of who is not included in the squad.


#93

#94

sakced in March next year when they go out in the CL


#95

He’s not wrong though. PSG don’t have great FBs in my opinion. Saying that I’d take Kurzawa here that’s for sure.


#96

Kurzawa here? :henry2:

This World Cup victory really was about a group of friends coming together to achieve something great. Deschamps always said he did not pick the 23 best French players for his squad, but the best group. A strategy totally vindicated. pic.twitter.com/WgUn1k2pYs

It’s so sad that for some people in France/Europe the composition of this squad is a thorn in their side (not sure if this translation is the correct one of the saying).


#98

Further to that, you just see that they’re having a blast and it’s very endearing


#99

It’s quite a catchy song

bit weird making Griezmann a sidenote in the lyrics…haha


#100

I guess not much rhymes with Griezmann lol
