Didier Deschamps had no shortage of talent to choose from when naming France’s 23 man World Cup squad.

Big name stars such as Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Olivier Giroud are joined by up and comers like Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele to make up the second youngest team heading to Russia. 

While the average age of the squad is low the expectations are high, with French fans expecting results after the heartbreak of the 2016 Euros. However the players seemed far from fazed arriving in style to start their final preparations with their recent 3-1 victory over Italy giving them a lot to smile about.

The team will take on the United States for one last hit out before the Cup begins.
