Turkey

FIFA Rating – 39

It may seem that the national team of Turkey is not dangerous, but it is deceptive. Since the 2018 year, they lost only 3 games against Sweden and twice to Russia. In 15 last games, they won 7, lost 3 and have drawn 5. That is a very confident result for such a team, without any big achievements. In Euro 2020 qualification they stand alongside with France both winning all previous matches. In general, they won 4 their las matches conceding only one goal against Greece.

The ex-Turkey Head Coach Şenol Güneş in 2000-2004 came back to national Turkey wheel. He came to put the team on the higher level and qualify to Euro2020 main tournament. Previously, 2000 year they reached Quarter-Finals of UEFA European Championship in Belgium and Netherlands. In 2002 Senol led Turkey to third place in the World Cup in Korea and Japan. Now the squad should welcome his back with great football and big intentions.

France

FIFA Rating – 2

Of course, France now is on the top and peak of their football. Their abilities can’t be compared to any other country right now in the World and they obviously are one of the strongest football teams. Since the 2017 year summer, they lost only twice – against Colombia in a friendly game and surprisingly against the Netherlands on their ground in UEFA Nations League. That led them taking second place and losing a chance to play for at Nations League trophy in the Playoffs. Previously, we all know that they won the World Cup in Russia, which proved their dominance in the world’s football now. They look young, strong, skillful, fast and very hungry to win everything on their way.

At the moment, the number of players who should get into the team more than there are places. That’s because someone remains outside the team. Didier Deschamps called a squad without any weak areas, so they need to take every moment in their favor. The main squad is almost stayed without changes after the World Cup, so their game should be at least the same or even stronger.
