Given the tempestuous nature of their match against Honduras, Didier Deschamps is likely as delighted that all of his France players came through it unscathed as with the three points they garnered.
The 3-0 win over the heavy-handed Hondurans confirmed pre-tournament suspicions that France were a side with the potential to go far in Brazil, especially given their favourable group stage draw.
Les Bleus are 16/1 to win the World Cup, but given the youthful makeup of their squad it is Euro 2016 where they are more likely to pick up their next silverware.
France, who host the competition, are 6/1 to win the European Championships in two years time when several key members of their side will be hitting their peak.
Four of their starting 11 against Honduras were aged 24 and under, with another five players under that age on their bench.
Centre-backs Raphael Varane and Mamadou Sakho, along with midfielder Paul Pogba, established themselves as key men for Les Bleus during qualification, while Antoine Griezmann has taken on an important role after Franck Ribery’s injury.
While this World Cup might come too soon for these players, with Pogba’s inexperience evident when he was lucky to escape a red card after kicking out at Wilson Palacios, Euro 2016 looks tailor-made for French success.
The only man from their current first team set to retire before then is 33-year-old left-back Patrice Evra, with 20-year-old Lucas Digne waiting in the wings as his replacement.
France have hosted the European Championship twice before, finishing fourth in the inaugural tournament in 1960 and winning it in 1984.
They also won the World Cup on home soil in 1998 and added a second European Championship title two years later when Belgium and the Netherlands were the hosts.
With home advantage and a superb young squad forged into a tight-knit unit at this World Cup, France are set to be irresistible in 2016.
