France at Euro 2024: Teams in group, fixtures, schedule, path to final in Germany

Following a heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat to Argentina in the 2022 World Cup final and a disappointing Round of 16 exit at Euro 2020, Didier Deschamps' men are hungry for glory.

The reigning World Champions of 2018 haven't lifted a trophy since then, but they've consistently reached the latter stages. Their dominance continued with an unbeaten qualifying campaign, showcasing their ruthless efficiency under Deschamps.

Adding young talent like PSG's teenage prodigy Warren Zaire-Emery bolsters their squad, while Kylian Mbappe takes the captain's armband in 2023. His leadership and goals will be crucial for France's success in Germany.

The draw for the group phase took place on December 2, 2023 and here is how France's tournament will look.

France Euro 2024 path to the final

Finishing first or second in this group is not likely to make a huge difference in terms of the difficulty for France in the Round of 16.

If they win their group, Les Bleus will face the runners-up of Group F, likely to be Turkey or Czechia.

If they finish second, they will meet the runners-up of Group E, which will likely be Slovakia, Romania, or Ukraine winners.

The former scenario would likely pit the against Belgium in the quarterfinals; the latter could see them face Portugal at that stage.
