The France World Cup 2022 squad has been declared - and the holders are without stars names like Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante.

However, the France group that lifted the World Cup in Russia was a Catch 22. Excessively guarded, said the naysayers - yet they set a record count of 11 objectives in the knockout stage, remembering four for the last. Pointlessly wary, complained the pundits - yet here's Benjamin Pavard, running up from right-back to score FIFA's Objective of the Competition in a rubbish 4-3 win over Argentina.

The possibility that Les Bleus' 2018 one-of-a-kind came up short on personality is off-base - their character was just to win. Shaped in the resemblance of chronic champ Didier Deschamps, their supervisor, they were a chameleon-like side, taking on the right system on a game-by-game premise to advance through the rounds.

Since that wonderful day in Moscow, there has been the mistake of an out-of-the-blue early Euro 2020 exit, losing to Switzerland on punishments in the last 16, yet additionally a sign of how great France is at their best, winning last October's Countries Association Finals. Having followed Belgium 2-0 at half-time in the semi-last prior to recuperating to win 3-2, they dug out from a deficit again to overcome Spain in the Milan masterpiece with objectives from Kylian Mbappe and the imperishable Karim Benzema, got back from the worldwide wild. Triumph honed its upper hand in front of the genuine article in Qatar.

Many key entertainers from 2018 are as yet basic individuals from this side. That is justifiable given their family, but at the same time, there's a genuine worry that few of those standard starters - Raphael Varane, Oliver Giroud, Antoine Griezmann to name however three - are no longer at the first-class level expected to win consecutive World Cups. Griezmann, for instance, is currently utilized only as a super sub by Atletico Madrid. In the interim, France's Countries Association title safeguard transformed quickly into a transfer fight with losses to Croatia, and Denmark home and away.

Set against such questions is the rise of a capable new gathering - driven by William Saliba and Aurelien Tchouameni - who might compel their direction into Deschamps' beginning XI once the activity starts off. The one-time water transporters must get the equilibrium right while getting results.

Somewhat, Qatar 2022 may stamp a passing of the implementation for France. They will in any case be among the top picks, however, whoever makes their line-up.
