France at the World Cup

France were one of the 13 teams in the inaugural World Cup in 1930. Their best results are wins in 1998 and 2018. They controversially qualified for the 2010 tournament with the assistance of a handball by Thierry Henry, and then more controversially were knocked out in the first stage of the tournament. They qualified again in 2014 and made it to the quarter-finals. In 2018, they won the tournament for the second time 4-2 in a high-scoring match against Croatia.
