Why France should utilise the PSG players more

France has not got off to a good start at the Euros drawing two and winning one of their three groups games. Despite being in a tough group consisting of Holland, Austria, and Poland Les Bleus was expected to cruise to first place in the group.

Didier Deschamps needs to make changes to a team that has flattered to deceive at this tournament. Les Bleus were victorious in just one of their three group games which is a cause of concern amongst journalists in the French media.

There are players in the squad that deserve to get more game time in this tournament. Here at PSG Post we discuss why the likes of Kolo Muani, Bradley Barcola, and Warren Zaire Emery should be featuring more in this tournament.

Oliver Giroud and Marcus Thuram have not done themselves any favours

Giroud is France's all-time leading top goal scorer and has been effective in previous tournaments for Les Bleus but he has not impressed Deschamps in training. The AC Milan striker hasn't shown the necessary effort in training to warrant a starting place for France at the Euros.

This has hampered his game time at the Euros as the competition for France's number nine spot is fierce with Kolo Muani and Thuram waiting in the wings. Marcus Thuram had a great season for Inter Milan last campaign but has struggled to translate this to the international stage with two goals in 22 appearances.

This should open the door to a place in the starting eleven for Kolo Muani who will be eager to right the wrongs of the World Cup final in Qatar.

Bradley Barcola could make a difference

France's attack has underwhelmed this tournament. Les Bleus have only scored two goals this Euros one was an own goal and the other was a penalty. They need to make changes to the front three they have used in the tournament.

One name that comes to mind is Bradley Barcola. The former Lyon winger has only played one game this tournament but has impressed Deschamps recently in training. A front three of Kolo Muani, Barcola, and Mbappe will provide plenty of fluidity.
