Past Performances: How has France Fared at the FIFA World Cup?

France is one of the teams which are contenders for the upcoming FIFA World Cup. The French team has been participating in the FIFA World Cup since 1930. Until 1998, the French team participated in many editions but managed a couple of good results (3rd in 1958, 4th in 1982 and 3rd in 1986 FIFA World Cup). 

At the 1998 FIFA World Cup, France were crowned FIFA World Cup champions. Many expected similar performances from the French team but the team shock exited from 2002 and 2010 world cup. France was eliminated in the group stage in both 2002 and 2010 editions. In the 2006 FIFA World Cup, France was very close to being crowned as champions but lost in the finals to Italy. 

In the 2018 Russia FIFA World Cup, France defeated Croatia in the finals to be crowned world champions for the second time.
