The France national football team (French: Équipe de France de football) represents France in men's international football and is controlled by the French Football Federation (Fédération française de football), also known as FFF. The team's colours are blue, white, and red, and the coq gaulois its symbol. France are colloquially known as Les Bleus (The Blues). They are the reigning world champions, having won the most recent World Cup final in 2018.
France plays their home matches at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, Île-de-France, and their manager is Didier Deschamps. They have won two FIFA World Cups, two UEFA European Championships, two FIFA Confederations Cups, one CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions and one UEFA Nations League title. France experienced much of its success in three different eras: in the 1980s, late 1990s/early 2000s and late 2010s, respectively, which resulted in numerous major honours. France was one of the four European teams that participated in the inaugural World Cup in 1930. Twenty-eight years later, the team, led by Raymond Kopa and Just Fontaine, finished in third place at the 1958 FIFA World Cup.
In 1984, under the leadership of the three-time Ballon d'Or winner Michel Platini, France won UEFA Euro 1984 (its first official title), a CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions (1985) and reached another two World Cup semi-finals (1982 and 1986). However, France only began to reach its prime from the 1990s onward, with the establishment of INF Clairefontaine.
