Add to that you have the likes of Dimitry Payet and Paul Pogba creating chances for the strikers. This French side has riches of talent.
These superstars will be on display when they take on England in an international friendly on Tuesday, June 13, at 21:00 on StarSat channel 245 (World Football).
England themselves have an array of stars who will want to show that they can be lethal.
