World Cup holders France comfortably qualified for their eighth European Championships and they are favourites to win it.
Manager Didier Deschamps — who himself captained France to Euro glory in 2000 — has kept hold of most of the 2018 squad.
They lost just one qualifying game, against Turkey.
They have arguably been drawn into the toughest group — featuring Germany, Portugal and Hungary — but it would be a huge disappointment if the country failed to advance to the latter stages.
