The 2022 FIFA World Cup is about to begin in Qatar in a few weeks’ time as France look to defend its world crown in the Middle East under the tutelage of Didier Deschamps. However, it won’t be easy for Les Bleus as they will face stiff competition from 31 other top countries in world football.

The France supporters have every reason to be optimistic about their side’s chances in this year’s World Cup, especially because they have world-class attackers like Kylian Mbappe in their squad.

Let’s focus on how many times the European giants have won the World Cup.

When Did The France National Team First Win The World Cup?

France participated in their first World Cup back in 1930. However, it took them 68 years before they were finally crowned the world champions.

Les Bleus lifted their first World Cup on 12 July 1998 when they defeated Brazil by a 3-0 scoreline, thanks to a brace from Zinedine Zidane and an injury-time Emmanuel Petit goal. They won the famous competition that year in front of the French supporters on home soil.

That triumph will go down in history as one of the proudest moments in French football.


How Many Times Has France Won The World Cup?

France has won the World Cup twice in its entire history. As mentioned earlier, they first won it in 1998 on home soil as they ended up beating Brazil in the final by a 3-0 scoreline.

In 2018, Les Bleus won the World Cup for their second time after they picked up a 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final which was held at the Luzhniki Stadium in Russia.

Didier Deschamps will now look to mastermind another World Cup win for France when the 2022 FIFA World Cup gets underway in Qatar from November 20.

Schedule Of France For World Cup 2022

France will clash heads with Australia at Al Janoub Stadium on November 22 in their first group game in this year’s World Cup before going on to take on Denmark four days later. The French will play their final group match versus Tunisia at the Education City Stadium on November 30. However, their main goal would be not only to qualify for the knockout stages but also to make it through to the final which is set to be held at the Lusail Stadium on December 18.
