France came into the tournament with one of the most star-studded line-ups in world football, which includes the likes of Antoine Greizmann, Kylian Mbappè, and Paul Pogba. Their first outing left a fair bit to desired, and after labouring to a 2-1 win over Australia, Didier Deschamps will be looking for his squad to kick it up a gear.
