Guess the big question for France is can they fit Benzema back in without unbalancing the side.

Depends on where they play Mbappe will they try and use him from the right wing like they did at the world cup and just put Benzema into the Giroud role or will Mbappe want to be up the middle.

they're already bickering internally I think. Giroud saying his team mates aren't passing to him, Mbappe getting uptight about it.

Good old France.

This is where I think Pogba can be big for them he needs to bring them all together and settle the ego's.

Think they go with Benzema through the middle if fit, yep Giroud moaning about Mbappe never passing to him.

I mean Mbappe is brilliant, but if you watch him enough, you realise he's a greedy sod.

I saw a list the other day of the most valuable players, he was about 12th I think. Foden no.1 :eek:

Yeah I saw that list. Think they factored in to account he's only got 12 months left on his contract too highly.

It's all statistical models so yeah Foden being so young and signed up for the next 5 years makes him incredibly valuable whereas Mbappe being 12 months from his contract expiring makes him less valuable. I imagine using their model if Mbappe signed a new 5 year deal tomorrow he'd rocket up to number 1 and be well clear of Foden.
