France have really struggled in recent years and it seems they are still searching for someone like Zidane who can win them most games almost single handedly. Unfortunately they just don't have a player of his quality and with players like Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira also gone we have to accept France aren't as good as they once were.

France will have home advantage at Euro 2016 and the hosts have a great record when they are one of the favourites at a Championships so it may be wise not to underestimate France's chances here.

France Recent European Championships Performances

Year Team Performance
2012 Eliminated In Quarter Finals
2008 Eliminated Bottom Of Group
2004 Eliminated In Quarter Finals
2000 Winners
1996 Eliminated In Semi Final

In the last five attempts France have had four different results at the European Championships, they have gone out at the group stage (bottom of their group four years ago), they have gone out in the quarter finals twice, they have gone out in the semi finals and they have gone all the way and won it. When they did win it in 2000 it was very much with their golden generation of players and they don't look half as strong now as they did then.
