The Arsenal manager concludes that his country could take over the football domain as they have got an array of talent including Pogba, Griezmann, and Mbappe in their squad.


According to the Arsene Wenger France, new generation footballer makes them “the upcoming force in international football".

The Gunners boss worked with some key player  from France’s golden generations in his coaching career players like Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira,

Didier Deschamps the captain of that golden Generation is now managing the French national side and he also got that wee tooled players with whom he can achieve all the glory what he has achieved a few years back as a French player,

But his side lost their EURO cup final match against the Portuguese side in 2016.

But now they have got some promising player in their squad, the 18-year-old Monaco Youngster Kylian Mbappe is one of them,

Wenger believes that could soon he would become the envy of the footballing world.

Wenger said: "I'm convinced, maybe because I'm French, but at the moment the best players in the world are in France,"

"When you put yourself in Deschamps' place it is a nightmare to select first the 20 best and then after the 11 best.

"That is not a problem they have at the moment in Spain. Germany as well is still there but maybe a little bit less strong than they were in [winning the 2014 World Cup in] Brazil.

"The upcoming force for me in international football is France. You find top quality players in France now like you did in Brazil 20 years ago.

"On every corner, you can find a player who can play for a national team. When you look at players like [Tiemoue] Bakayoko and [Alexandre] Lacazette who are not even selected – that was not the case 10 years ago.

"That's why I think that France has an exceptional potential and maybe could take over."
