France v Peru

26th June - 3pm
Denmark v France


Flag: The Tricolour is three vertical stripes of blue, white and red. The clue’s in the name presumably.

Population: 65.7 million

Nickname: The frankly unimaginative Les Bleus (The Blues).

Manager: Former Marseille, Juventus and Chelsea schemer, Diddyman Deschamps or, as he’s also known, Didier Deschamps.

Captain: It’s the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris.

Star Man: Antoine Griezmann.  Any other players we might have heard of: Just look at the Newcastle squad or, failing, that the Premier League itself – they’re more full with Frenchmen than a wartime cupboard under the stairs.  Any names we can laugh at like kids? Here’s hoping Marseille’s Rod Fanni gets the nod for the Finals.
