France Euro 2024 Squad: Didier Deschamps has named his 25-man squad for Euro 2024 in Germany, with a few surprises and the return of a familiar hero. Here’s a look at what French fans can expect:

N’Golo Kante makes shocking return

In a major boost for Les Bleus, World Cup winner N’Golo Kante has earned a recall despite not featuring for France since 2022. The 33-year-old midfielder, now playing for Saudi club Al-Ittihad, brings a wealth of experience and defensive prowess to the squad.

“He’s back to full fitness,” Deschamps assured on French TV. “With his experience, I’m convinced the French team will be stronger with N’Golo Kante.”

Youthful additions impress in France’s Euro 2024 squad

Deschamps has also turned to exciting young talent. Paris Saint-Germain’s teenage sensation Warren Zaire-Emery (18) and his teammate Bradley Barcola (21) have been rewarded for their impressive performances in Ligue 1.

Very happy to be on the list,” said Zaire-Emery, “I’m very happy and proud to represent my country.” He has even been granted permission to delay his final school exams to focus on the Euros.
