France Primed for Euro 2016

It's been quite some time since France basked in the international limelight.

Looks like that's got a chance to happen again.

Les Bleus were firing on all cylinders against Russia in their friendly, coming out of it with a snazzy 4-2 result.

The Euro 2016 hosts can't be more prepared for the prestigious occasion.

The French believe their latest side has the markings of a golden generation, and it does have the appearance of living up to the hype.

For example, a key factor in Leicester City’s surprising rise is Ngolo Kante, who added the perfect finish to a wonderful French build-up.

Football at its very best on display here.

France just snowballed from there, as a second came quickly through André Pierre Gignac.

Still, what goes around, comes around. as Russia’s Aleksandr Kokorin scored a similar goal.

Actually, that was even better than France’s second goal.

The newest sensation for France and the Premiership -- Dimitri Payet -- showed his capabilities:

The new free kick maestro has arrived.

As often happens with large margins, Les Bleus got overconfident, allowing Russia to quickly pounce. Yuri Zhirkov did the honors.

France saved its best for last, though.

Kingsley Coman is the new kid on the block, and he's looking like he can't wait to show the world this summer.
