  • Some players of the French national team arrived at their training base on Monday in questionable attire
  • The 2018 world champions go into the 2022 World Cup in Qatar this month as one of the favourites
  • The likes of Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe will hope to lead the European nation to another glory

After announcing the 26-man squad, it's back to business for the France stars selected for World Cup duty.

The likes of Karim Benzema and Aurelin Tchouameni all arrived at the famous Clairefontaine training base for their first World Cup training camp on Monday morning.

Didier Deschamps' men go into the World Cup as one of the pre-tournament favourites, despite missing the services of key midfielders Paul Pogba and N'golo Kante.

But despite the arrival of the star-studded France squad at their training base, it was the players' fashion sense that was once again one of the major talking points.

Raphael Varane and Eduardo Camavinga were among the players to steal the show on arrival, with the former arriving with a smart jacket and the latter donning a bright green jacket.

However, it was Jules Kounde who ultimately wore the most daring of outfits.

GFFN reported that the versatile Barcelona defender donned shades and a smart black jacket as he arrived at the training base. He also wore colourful distressed jeans, with what appeared to be a bag in the shape of a T-Rex attached to them.

France will fancy their chances again in Qatar due to a number of high-profile names in their squad, including Ballon d'Or winner Benzema and Kylian Mbappe.

The defending champions will get their title defence underway against Australia on November 22, before they take on Denmark and Tunisia in their other group games.

France’s World Cup group

France are the defending champions, having beaten Croatia in the final in 2018. Les Bleus will be hoping to repeat that feat, considering they will face two opponents they played against during the last tournament.

As the Mirror reports, Denmark and Australia will meet France again in the group stages. Denmark and Australia were drawn alongside Les Bleus in the 2018 edition of the tournament.

Tunisia are the only new team in the group. Four years ago, Peru competed alongside the other three.

French World Cup squad announced

Didier Deschamps officially unveiled his team that will defend the World Cup title in Qatar, Sports Brief reported.

As expected, the French squad is star-studded, with top talents like Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoinne Griezmann among the most notable names.

France beat Croatia in Russia's 2018 World Cup final and will hope lightning can strike twice in Qatar. Les Bleus face Australia, Tunisia and Denmark in group stage action.
