Safe Hands: Ranking All 24 Starting Goalkeepers At Euro 2020

The build-up to every major international tournament is the same: who has the best striker? Or, this is why x midfielder is going to dominate or why this winger is the key to this country getting out of its group.

Up until France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final of the 2018 World Cup, Les Bleus were criticized for playing with the sort of pragmatic control that wins you titles but few admirers. 

Half of the front four (Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi) were employed in yeoman’s work, while the left flank of Lucas Hernandez, N'Golo Kanté and Matuidi was there to destroy any fleeting moments of opposition joy.

¿Debe N'Golo Kanté Ganar El Balón De Oro 2021?

Un discreto y humilde 29 de marzo de 1991 nació en París, Francia, un tal N’Golo Kanté. Hijo de inmigrantes africanos que tuvieron la oportunidad de radicarse en la ciudad de la luz y buscar un futuro mejor.
