The history of the French soccer team dates back to 1904. The team, also known as Les Bleus, represents the nation of France in international soccer. It is run by the French Football Federation and competes as a member of UEFA.

France was one of four European teams to take part in the inaugural World Cup in 1930 and was one of eight national teams to win the competition, which they did in 1998 when they hosted the cup.

The 1978 World Cup was when France won their first-ever international trophy. The team had qualified for the competition after having lost in previous World Cups in 1962, 1966, and 1970. France was ranked 13th in the FIFA world rankings at that time but managed to beat Argentina 4-1 in a final that saw more goals scored than any other final that year, with France victorious 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

They have won the FIFA World Cup on two occasions in 1998 and 2018. They Have Also Won two UEFA European Championships, two FIFA Confederations Cups, one Artemio Franchi Trophy, and one UEFA Nations League title.

The French National Team has become one of the most famous teams in FIFA World Cup 2018. They are known for their style of play, being one of the best teams in Europe, and their players’ talent.

The team’s star player Paul Pogba is arguably one of the best midfielders in the world, with his high-profile move to Manchester United for a record transfer fee last summer. Pogba can potentially make an impact on this tournament like he did four years ago at Euro 2016 when he was named Player of the Tournament after helping France win their first major trophy since 2000.

Kylian Mbappé was awarded the Best Young Player award and Antoine Griezmann received the Bronze Ball and Silver Boot for his performance during the tournament.

France National Football Team Home Stadium

Stade de France

France National Football Team plays their home games at Stade de France in North Paris.

It was built to replace the Stade de Wagram, which had too little room for expansion due to its location within Paris. The construction began in 1995 and was completed two years later at a cost of €290 million.

It has been the national stadium of the France football team since its opening in 1998. Its 80,698-seat capacity makes it the seventh-largest stadium in Europe.

France has had three different uniform manufacturers in its history: Le Coq Sportif (1966-72), Adidas (1972-2010), and Nike (2011 onwards). They won three titles wearing Adidas uniforms, EURO 1984, the 1998 World Cup, and Euro 2000.

Since Adidas became their supplier in 1972, the kits from France have become increasingly notable. The Adidas France home kits of the 70s and 80s were all relatively classic, while the 1990s heralds an era of very prominent France kits.

Nike’s uniforms for the France team have been either very modern or very classic. The latest edition, the Centenary kit, returns to the traditional French blue color.
