The French Football Federation published this Saturday the official photo of the players and staff of the France team, before the start of the Euro.
Ten days before the French team’s entry into the competition for the Euro, against Germany in Munich, the official photo was unveiled on Saturday. The 26 players, Didier Deschamps and his three staff members posed in match outfit in front of Jean-François Robert’s goal. They settled in the open air, behind the Château de Clairefontaine.
This photo could only be taken after the first warm-up match, which won 3-0 on Wednesday night against Wales. Before that, N’Golo Kanté, Olivier Giroud and Kurt Zouma, who won the Champions League with Chelsea, were not available.
