Time to name our France best XI of players that represented the country in the 21st century.

The current World champions and European vice-champions France have had a quite successful 20 year in the 2000s.

They started by adding the 2000 EURO title to the 1998 FIFA Wolrd Cup triumph, then reached the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final, but lost to Italy on penalties and at the end won the 2018 FIFA World Cup, after losing in the 2016 UEFA Euro Final to Portugal on home soil.

A lot of big football names represented the country during the past 20 years, so it wasn’t easy for us to name our Best XI for the period.

However, we managed to do so, taking into account only the achievements of the players on the international stage. Check out our team and share your thoughts in the comment section below.
