As one of the four European teams that played in the inaugural 1930 World Cup, and as one of only two teams in the world that has managed to win all three of the major European football or soccer events (the FIFA World Cup, the European Championship and the Confederations Cup), there is no question that the French national soccer team is a force to be reckoned with any time its players step onto the soccer pitch in their distinctive blue and white uniforms. With a World Cup event on the way this summer for the first time in four years, France will undoubtedly be a contender once more, and what better way to announce your fandom and support of the team by wrapping yourself in the blue and white of the France World Cup tracksuit 2014?

French National Football Team to Celebrate a Milestone at This Year's World Cup

The French national soccer team formed at the start of the 20th century and played its first match in 1904, making this year's World Cup a 110th anniversary milestone for the storied football league. In those 110 years, France has accumulated a slew of accomplishments, from its involvement in the very first World Cup event to its first (and thus far, only) victory in 1998. In that particular year, France both hosted the tournament and won it, defeating Brazil in a 3-0 finals match played on their home turf of Stade de France. This year, with Brazil taking the home team role and France in the hunt for its first victory of the new millennium, could potentially present a roles-reversed rematch between the two sometimes-rival football clubs. Choose your side with a France World Cup tracksuit for 2014.

Troubled Times Keep France out of Contention

Following their ringing home victory in 1998, France should have been a contender at every major football event for the next decade. Things didn't exactly work out that way though. Victories at the European Championship and the Confederations Cup in 2000 and 2001 respectively, not to mention the team's 'defending champion' status, easily posited France as obvious frontrunners for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. When the team was sent packing in a first-round game against Senegal, the soccer world was shocked, to say the least, though none more so than those wearing the France training kit.

The loss proved a hard one for France to get over, and the team struggled for the next four years, ultimately fighting back to score a finals berth in the 2006 world cup. Though they were defeated in that match, losing the World Cup title to their Italian rivals in a controversial game wrought with penalties and time disruptions, it seemed as if France's glory days were on their way back. Still, the next four years didn't prove to be much more profitable for the team than the 2002 to 2006 span, and after a tough elimination in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup, the French national football team was more or less back to square one. This means that the players and fans wearing the France World Cup tracksuit 2014 are desperately looking for the win.
