In terms of squad depth and quality, there aren’t many nations out there who have it better than France.
With top class experienced players and a whole host of young talent coming through the ranks, its safe to say that France will compete in the latter stages of international tournaments for many years to come.
The current world champions are littered with stars from defence through attack, here is the best French team you can build in FIFA Ultimate Team this year.
GK – Hugo Lloris (OVR 88)
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Cost: 33.5k PS4 / 31.25k Xbox One
In goal there is only one name in contention, and that is Tottenham number one Hugo Lloris.
Lloris has been loyal servant to the French team for years and captained the side to World Cup glory in 2018. At 33.5k he is one of the more expensive keepers in the game, however he does bring some impressive stats for that price tag, with an impressive 91 GK reflexes.
Alternative option: Stéphane Ruffier (OVR 81)
RB – Kevin Malcuit (OVR 78)
Cost: 3.2k PS4 / 3.8k Xbox One
There aren’t many high rated French RB’s, however there are several overpowered beasts that can be selected; we’ve gone for Napoli RB Kevin Malcuit.

The 28-year-old is yet to win an international cap for Les Bleus, however on FIFA, he is the best the nation has to offer. He has everything you’ll need for an attacking fullback, with 85 pace, 78 dribbling and 75 physical key in those bursts down the right flank.
Alternative option: Kenny Lala (OVR 79)
CB – Raphael Varane (OVR 85)
Club: Real Madrid
Cost: 279k PS4 / 217k Xbox One
The first of two centre halves in the 4-1-2-1-2 formation that we have selected is Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
Following injury in the 2018-19 campaign, Varane saw his overall rating drop from an 86 to an 85, however that hasn’t stopped him from being one of the games most sought after defenders. He’s not cheap, however with 83 pace, 85 defending and 80 physical, he will command the back four.
Alternative option: Aymeric Laporte (OVR 87)
CB – Clement Lenglet (OVR 85)
Club: FC Barcelona
Cost: 108k PS4 / 90k Xbox One
Partnering Varane, we have Barcelona’s summer signing, Clement Lenglet. The €35 million man made his international debut for France earlier in the summer, and scored his first goal for his country against Andorra in their recent clash.

Like Varane, he wont come cheap, however his superb 90 defensive awareness and 87 interceptions make him a nightmare for any forward.
Alternative option: Samuel Umtiti (OVR 86)
LB – Ferland Mendy (OVR 80)
Club: Real Madrid
Cost: 50k PS4 / 40k Xbox One
With a number of high-quality French left backs, Mendy just about makes the cut. The Real Madrid man has been near extinct for most of the game, and whilst 50,000 coins seems outrageous for an 80 rated player, he is the DREAM sweaty fullback.
With two solid centre-halves covering, his high/medium work rates won’t be an issue, whilst 90 acceleration and 88 sprint speed will make him lethal on the overlap.
Alternative Option: Jerome Roussillon (OVR 82)
