France have the talent to win the World Cup; now they need the mentality

Frank Leboeuf remains confident that France will qualify directly for the World Cup but is critical of Les Bleus' draw with Luxembourg.
The FC crew try to make sense of France's draw with Luxembourg, a team they last failed to beat 103 years ago.

On one hand, it's probably not a bad thing that France isn't fully ready just yet, nine-and-a-half months before the start of the World Cup. It is never good to peak too soon before a major competition. For all the countries who will qualify for the World Cup, this 2017-18 season should be used to get stronger and stronger so they are ready when they get to Russia in June.

On the other hand, it was an embarrassing result. Drawing 0-0 at home with Luxemburg as Les Bleus did on Sunday, despite...

France's draw against Luxembourg was stunning for many reasons

The FC crew try to make sense of France's draw with Luxembourg, a team they last failed to beat 103 years ago.

UEFA's World Cup qualifying Group A is turning into a mind-bender. How about a little rewind?

So Sweden, who were leading the group, contrived to lose 3-2 to Bulgaria, who then got thumped by the Dutch, 3-1, who in turn were beaten up 4-0 by France who, on Sunday night, wandered down the rabbit hole and were held to a scoreless draw by Luxembourg, a team they last failed to beat 103 years ago.

Yes, Luxembourg, who are ranked 48th of 54 nations in UEFA. It's a really big deal.

Before you get a little...

Pogba, Mbappe and France flops slammed after Luxembourg draw

The FC crew discuss Luxembourg's shock draw with France.
The FC crew discuss Luxembourg's shock draw with France.

One of the stand-out results of the international weekend saw little Luxembourg battle their way to an historic 0-0 draw with a France team that boasted the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe.

Despite racking up nearly 80 percent possession and letting fly with 34 efforts on goal, Didier Deschamps' well-stocked side were left ultimately frustrated as they failed to beat Luxembourg for the first time in over 100 years.

Unsurprisingly, the French press were rather unforgiving...

France has all of the talent and all of the pressure in World Cup qualifying

France has another golden generation, but the pressure's on for the likes of Thomas Lemar, centre, to live up to the hype.

Just imagine a squad that includes three of the four most expensive players of all time, as well as the most costly defender in the world and the most expensive player ever in the Bundesliga. This squad is the France squad.

Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele (though he has not been selected this time by Didier Deschamps because of his contract situation before joining Barcelona), Paul Pogba, Benjamin Mendy (also absent from the current squad for fitness reasons) and Corentin Tolisso: Summer after...

Wanna play like Antoine Griezmann, Thierry Henry? There's a boot for that

If you've ever wanted to play like Antoine Griezmann and Thierry Henry rolled into one, then Puma's latest football boot may just be the one for you.

The sportswear company have worked in close conjunction with both aforementioned France stars to produce the 'ONE' boot -- a single boot created to meet the needs of all types of players, from goalkeepers to strikers and everything in between.

France's growing talent pool makes for tough decisions for Didier Deschamps

Ousmane Dembele netted the game-winner for France as they fought back with 10 men to defeat England 3-2.

Just 38 years of age between them both. Kylian Mbappe turned 18 last December and Ousmane Dembele only blew out the 20 candles on his birthday cake last month. That they are both extremely talented -- borderline geniuses even -- is nothing new. But against England (3-2) in their first start for France together, Mbappe's fourth cap and Dembele's seventh, the duo showed they were ready to do it at the highest level despite their youth and have now made Didier Deschamps' nights a lot more difficult...
