David Trezeguet's ruthless finishing made him a memorable striker

David Trezeguet experienced several highs and lows with France as he won the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship, but he also missed a crucial penalty in the 2006 World Cup.

Football is a game of fine margins, and few understand this better than French striker David Trezeguet, whose retirement from football was widely reported this week.

There's a tremendous symmetry about Trezeguet's high and low points of his career. Both came in major international finals, both came against the Italy national team -- the country where he spent his best years at Juventus during 2000-10 -- and both were utterly decisive.

One was a thumping drive into the top of the net, the other was...

Where does Thierry Henry's legacy fit into the pantheon of French football?

Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football as he prepares for a career in the media.
Footballers took to social media Tuesday to pay tribute to Thierry Henry who has officially hung up his boots to become a media pundit.
The ESPN FC crew reflect on what Thierry Henry has brought to the MLS and discuss what his legacy will be.

Now that his career is over, Thierry Henry, 37, will come home. He will move back to where he belongs. No, it is not Paris or its suburbs where he was born and grew up and where his family still lives. It is not Monaco, where he started his incredible career at age 17. No, home for Henry is London.

Of course, he spent eight great years at Arsenal and has a statue at the Emirates. He is the club's greatest-ever player, its top goal-scorer (228), its biggest legend and, in my opinion, the best player...

Ligue 1: Why We Watch

He may not be the best player in world football but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in a class of his own.

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Julien Laurens tells us about his love for Ligue 1.

I can still remember my first Ligue 1 game. 1987. I was just seven years old. My dad took me to the Parc des Princes for PSG vs. Marseille. The home side won 4-0 and I was hooked; since then, I've yet...

With Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane, France's future looks bright

Let's be honest, France's 1-0 win over Sweden in Marseille on Tuesday evening won't be mentioned in the history books of the French national team. It was a boring affair, Paul Pogba was disappointing for the second game in a row, the newcomers (Josuha Guilavogui, Layvin Kurzawa, Eliaquim Mangala, Dimitri Payet and Andre-Pierre Gignac) were unconvincing and Zlatan Ibrahimovic opted to train with Paris Saint-Germain than be at the Velodrome.

Of course, though, there was Raphael Varane, who is always...

France's great expectations weigh heavily on Karim Benzema

Of course, you could argue that, on this subject, Didier Deschamps is probably quite biased. When asked a question about Karim Benzema and the Ballon d'Or last week, the France manager got really excited. "If you consider the form he has been showing since the start of the season, Karim deserves to be in the top three of the final votes," the 1998 World Cup winner said about his striker, who is part of the 23-man list of candidates to land the prestigious award.

But whether you think Deschamps is...

Raphael Varane shines as France defeat Portugal in Paris friendly

Didier Deschamps' men beat Spain at home before drawing in Serbia last time out and they put in another positive performance in their own backyard to hand Fernando Santos a defeat on his debut as Portuguese coach.

Karim Benzema's early effort and Paul Pogba's well-taken second half goal proved too much for the visitors -- despite Santos' men...
