France’s Euro 2024 Squad Announced

Football News Update: In a major development, France’s head coach Didier Deschamps has unveiled his squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament. The big surprise in the selection is the inclusion of midfielder N’Golo Kanté, who will be looking to make a significant impact on the international stage.

Veteran striker Olivier Giroud has also announced that he will be retiring from international football after the European Championship. With 131 appearances and 57 goals for the national team, Giroud is the men’s all-time leading goalscorer for France, having overtaken the legendary Thierry Henry during the 2022 World Cup.

“To be honest, this will be my last competition with Les Bleus. Obviously, I’m going to miss it a lot,” Giroud told L’Equipe in an interview. “But I think the French team will be over after the Euros. We need to make way for the youngsters. You also have to be careful not to have one season too many.”

France, who were eliminated in the round of 16 at Euro 2020, will be looking to reclaim the European Championship trophy they last won in 2000. They will face Austria, the Netherlands, and Poland in the group stage, which kicks off on June 17.

As the countdown to the highly anticipated Euro 2024 tournament continues, football fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the action-packed matches and the chance to see some of the best players in the world compete on the international stage.
