France Potential Squad: 5 Best France Players in World Cup 2022

5 Best France Players in World Cup 2022

Here we look into the top 5 French players who could make a huge impact in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

#1 Kylian Mbappe 

The PSG star Kylian Mbappe is too good not to place at no. 1 on our list. The 2018 World Cup superstar looks all set to gun once again to defend the title.

The 23-year-old has already scored 8 goals in 9 matches in Ligue 1, joint top with Neymar. Moreover, Mbappe has scored 4 goals in 4 matches in the Champions League and clinched three player-of-the-match awards.

#2 Karim Benzema

The Real Madrid goal machine Karim Benzema will compete against his wingman Mbappe to win the Golden Boot in the World Cup 2022.

Benzema has been scoring goals for fun. He is all set to win this year’s Ballon d’Or award, after being the top scorer in both La Liga and the Champions League last season.

#3 Ousmane Dembele 

We have another forward on our list who is too good to ignore. The Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele is in the best form of his career.

Dembele has been a key man in the Barcelona offense. He makes dangerous runs from the right wing and tries to enter the box. The both-foot player often blinds the defenders. Dembele has scored 2 goals and 2 assists in La Liga and another couple of assists in the Champions League this season.  

#4 Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga is proving to be a fundamental midfielder for the European Champions Real Madrid. The 19-year-old is a star in the making and could play a Pogba or Kante role in the World Cup for France, given they remain injured.

#5 Hugo Lloris

Didier Deschamps can rely on the safe hands of Hugo Lloris. A goalkeeper is key if you win any tournament. The Tottenham starting GK Hugo Lloris will be keen to make another Final appearance this term in Qatar.
