Affiliated : 1804
WC Participations : 11 (1930, 1934, 1938, 1954, 1958, 1966, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1998, 2002)

Facts :
France is one of only two teams to have taken part in every qualifying competition thus far. They have gone on to play in 11 out of a possible 17 finals. As hosts in 1998, the Equipe Tricolore claimed the trophy with a 3-0 win against Brazil in the final.
The ultimate success may have been a long time in coming, but France were already a notable force in world football. It was a Frenchman, Jules Rimet, who established the FIFA World Cup, and Lucien Laurent scored the first goals in FIFA World Cup history.
The French team was devastated in 2002 when as defending champions they fell at the first hurdle, eliminated after a first round in which they neither won a game nor scored a single goal.
