1. This is France's 14th FIFA World Cup and there are many reasons why you should cheer for them.
2. France has a long history in the World Cup. They participated in the very first one in 1930.
3. And to this day, French player Just Fontaine (left) holds the record of the highest number of goals scored by a single player in a World Cup.
4. Supporting France is stressful but also suspenseful and exciting.
5. I mean, how many teams go on strike during a World Cup?
6. And what other team had their star player HEADBUTT A PLAYER FROM THE OPPOSITE TEAM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORLD CUP FINAL?
I'm telling you, you'll never get bored with these guys.
7. But when they win, it is glorious!
8. Like that time in 1998 when they won the World Cup by beating Brazil 3-0.
9. Last year, things weren't so great for the French team and they barely qualified for the World Cup during play-offs.
10. But, since then, they've had a series of victories.
11. They have many things working in their favor. For one, their coach, Didier Deschamps, was the captain of the 1998 French team.
12. They also have great players, like Frank Ribéry, Paul Pogba, and Mathieu Valbuena.
13. And if you base your decision on aestheticism, France also has a lot to offer. Starting with Patrice Evra.
The Manchester United left-back is also obviously a great player.
14. And let's not forget the hottest player in the World Cup, Olivier Giroud.
The Arsenal striker is a treat for the eye and a good player too.
