While there are a lot of stars that are still waiting for their chance to prove themselves, there are others who have already established themselves as mainstays in the team and are already indispensable. The likes of Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, KylianMbappé, and Hugo Lloris, amongst others, are already confirmed regular starters in the French team and there’s every reason for them to be excited heading into the Euros.

Deschamps has admitted that he knows he has a wealth of options in his squad and that he already has the luxury of still being able to call up more stars who can compete for places in the squad. However, the 52-year-old manager has warned his players against being complacent ahead of the Euros as it would cost them dearly if they do so. The coach says he is very much interested in preparing his squad so they can become major contenders and favorites to complete a Euros and World Cup double.
