I think the point made in the video was pretty clear, NTs that win the World Cup are a lot worse 4 years later

In the last editions, surely.
Doesn't mean much though.

Their problem was sticking with the previous core. France has young players and had young players when they won.

In 2002 they did the mistake on relying on Henry when Zidane was out. Not a leader by any means. And they were arrogant enough to think they'd win everything.
Spain on the other hand with their gold generation won everything 3 times in a row. France has that capability now. Can't say the same for any other nation out there.

In Argentina they claim NT players will ask from their clubs not to play in the last match before the world cup. For Inter this match is the one at Bergamo. This better be a joke. If Lautaro and Correa have the nerve to ask to be excluded from that match the club better deny the request without discussion. Players are paid from the clubs. NTs don't have any right to ask for anything. It's already bad enough schedule is full with pointless NT matches that put players fitness at risk.

Argentina has enough forwards that Lautaro can miss the first game, surely?

France has good enough midfielders to cover for Kante. Also if France is smart, Pogba won't start.

I thought Lloris had remained starter - which is ridiculous because Lloris has always sucked.

Was he favorite to start, or is it still Lloris' gig?
I believe it would have been Lloris anyway. Maignan had only started in the recent Nations League matches.

I am so so sad no Italy or Colombia.... both teams just so epically fkd up. Italy got knocked out by some fake country and Colombia even worse by fking Peru who lost to fking Australia !!!

I hope Brazil or Argentina win it for South America. Tho as much as I hate Uruguay I will cheer for them too. As long as fking France doesn't win and England gets knocked out in group stage I'll be happy.
