The FIFA World Cup champions want to return to the Euro Championship after being runner-ups in the last edition

On 2016, France and Portugal battled for European supremacy with the Portuguese winning the Euro trophy.

Flash forward two years later and the French were able to lift the FIFA World Cup trophy in Russia during the summer.

And now, Les Blues want to continue their reign as they aim to qualify to the Euro 2020.

Current world-champs have been drawn into Group H together with Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, and Andorra.

From these six, only Moldova and Andorra have yet to appear in a European Championship, while the other four all played in the 2016 edition.
