Latest World Cup odds for France
France’s recent big tournament performances have been extremely disappointing – they failed to make it out of the group stages in the 2008 European Championships and 2010 World Cup in South Africa, as well as only making it to the quarter-finals in most recent Euro competition. 2013 hasn’t been a great year either, with losses to Germany, Spain, Uruguay and Brazil, all teams they will have to beat if they want to make it far at the 2014 World Cup.
The retirement of many of their superstars has left France in a phase of transition as they await the progression of many talented footballers at their disposal. Goal scoring could be a real problem for France, with no player having scored more than two goals in the qualifying campaign thus far.
Franck Ribery, a recent Champions League winner, will certainly be called upon at the World Cup. In Hugo Lloris they have one of the best goalkeepers in the world and if they can find a regular goalscorer they may well surprise a few teams.

Best bets for France at World Cup 2014
You can never count France out with their superb history but a World Cup win in 2014 seems beyond them at this stage. They could be in and amongst the knockout stages, though, and have the potential to knock out a big contender along the way. France are 50/1 to lift the World Cup in 2014 if you take advantage of the Boylesports double odds offer. A more realistic bet involving France is for them to be the top European team, which at odds of 8/1 with Betfred looks a fair shout. Click here to visit Betfred and get a £25 matched bet.
