France national team head coach Didier Deschamps has named his 25-man squad for the 2024 Euros in Germany.

Les Bleus are considered favorites to win the tournament after reaching the final of the biggest men’s football tournament in the world – the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Moreso, parading some of the finest legs in all four departments gifts the European giants an indisputable advantage over other contenders.

Didier Deschamps, who is one of the longest-serving national team managers among Europe’s top sides, has named his 25-man squad for the tournament.

As usual, there are surprise inclusions and exclusions from the list. N’Golo Kante, who had his international career stalled following a crippling injury issue while at Chelsea, is back in the squad.

Among the goalkeeper options for Deschamps are Alphonse Areole and Mike Maignan, including Samba.

Barcelona defender Jules Kounde leads the defensive options, including Arsenal’s William Saliba, Bayern Munich’s Dayot Upamecano, AC Milan’s Hernandez, and Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy.

Serie A top midfielder and former Man United target Adrien Rabiot leads the midfield call-up alongside Antoine Griezmann, Zaire-Emery of PSG, Aurelien Tchouameni of Real Madrid, and Kante of Al-Ittihad.

PSG duo Barcola and Dembélé, including Real Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe lead the attacking options alongside Kingsley Coman, Olivier Giroud, and Thuram.

France full squad for Euro 2024.

Goalkeepers: Aréola, Maignan, Samba.

Defenders: Koundé, Clauss, Pavard, Konaté, Saliba, Upamecano, Hernandez, Mendy.

Midfielders: Camavinga, Fofana, Rabiot, Zaire-Emery, Tchouaméni, Griezmann, Kanté.

Forwards: Barcola, Dembélé, Coman, Giroud, Kolo Muani, Mbappé, Thuram.

As captured by Fabrizio Romano, leading the list of names left out of the French squad for the tournament are Crystal Palace forward Michael Olise, and Chelsea duo Malo Gusto and Axel Disasi.

Others include Mo Simakan, Jean Clair Todibo, Mattéo Guendouzi, Jean-Philippe Mateys, and Moussa Diaby.

France have been grouped alongside Poland, Netherlands, and Austria in Group D. They will open their 2024 Euro campaign against Austria on June 17, 2024, before taking on Poland and Netherlands.
