FIFA World Cup 2014: France 23 Man Squad

France coach, Didier Deschamps, has named his 23 man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

A strong-as-ever looking squad of players will be hoping to improve upon recent performances on the international stage and make it to the final rounds in Brazil.

To do so, they must first qualify from Group E against Switzerland, Equador and Honduras – if they play up to their ability, France should go through their group with a little in hand.
