Inspired by the NBA, Pogba and Griezmann deliver World Cup rings to France

In the style of the NBA and other American sports, championship rings were made for members of France's 2018 World Cup-winning squad.

CLAIREFONTAINE, France -- They had been waiting for so long, almost eight months since their day of glory in Moscow. They had been impatient, excited and curious, almost like children waiting for Christmas morning.

Since France's World Cup final victory vs. Croatia, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba have been going on and on about those rings. The best friends love American sports, especially the NBA, and since the beginning of les Bleus' World Cup adventure, had in their minds that if they won the...

PSG's Kylian Mbappe channels inner Pele after 100th training-ground goal

Craig Burley says Kylian Mbappe is the one player who can rival the world's two best players after his big night for PSG at Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe is known for his competitive streak, but the France international took that to a whole new level after hitting his 100th training-session goal in the buildup to Sunday's Ligue 1 clash away at Saint-Etienne.

Just days after he scored PSG's second goal in their impressive 2-0 win away at Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie, Mbappe was presented with a novelty shirt to celebrate his training feat.

The 20-year-old...

Qatar's Asian Cup win shows that possession could be poison in international football

From the universality of Total Football to the Petrosian-like stoutness of Jose Mourinho, it has always been said football has an evolutionary or permutable quality.

Rules have sometimes influenced dominant tactics, much like changes to offside laws creating the W-M formation, or the back-pass rule facilitating the implementation of targeted pressing and higher defensive lines.

More often than not, however, tactical shifts and trends are based on ideology.

And so when Qatar comfortably defeated...

Aymeric Laporte's dominant form has Man City perplexed at continued France omission

French World Cup winner Frank Leboeuf explains why France doesn't really care about its national team's group-stage exit in the UEFA Nations League.

Only one outfield player has completed every single minute of Manchester City's outstanding start to the Premier League and Champions League this season, yet bizarrely, he is still yet to earn a single international appearance.

While his teammates were flying to all corners of the globe, Aymeric Laporte was again snubbed by Didier Deschamps ahead of France's Nations League defeat to the Netherlands. That was followed by a friendly with Uruguay when Deschamps started with Mamadou Sakho of Crystal...

Olivier Giroud follows fine tradition of forwards whose graft means more than goals

French World Cup winner Frank Leboeuf explains why France doesn't really care about its national team's group-stage exit in the UEFA Nations League.

In France's final game of a triumphant 2018, perhaps it's fitting that the spotlight finally fell upon Olivier Giroud. Handed the ball by Antoine Griezmann, the Chelsea striker scored a penalty to give his country a 1-0 win over Uruguay in a friendly.

At the World Cup this summer, Giroud took much more of a back seat. He had a largely sacrificial role in Russia, drawing the attention of the opposing centre-backs so that his fellow attackers could roam in the space he had created. He didn't score...
