The France soccer jerseys looked nothing if not bulletproof in the Friday afternoon bout against Switzerland, which saw the two teams facing one another on the pitch of Brazil's Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador. Prior to the tournament, Switzerland had been slotted at number six on FIFA's world rankings list, handily outstripping France (at 17), as well as the Ecuador and Honduras football teams that round out Group E.
In fact, Switzerland's debut appearance at the 2014 World Cup a workmanlike, 2-1 win over Ecuador only contributed to the belief that Switzerland was a frontrunner to win Group E and move on to the knockout stage. Now, though, with France clearly caring very little for FIFA's supposed rankings, and with five allowed goals doing no favors to Switzerland in the goal difference department, Switzerland will absolutely have to defeat Honduras next Wednesday and by a fair margin, no less if the team wants to join France at the top of the group.
- June 16, 2014After a crushingly disappointing performance in the 2010 World Cup, the France national football team made a strong debut at this year's tournament in Brazil. The team's first match, a bout with group stage opponents Honduras, saw the blue and white of
the France home kit looking stronger and bolder than it has in years, with the French team besting Honduras in a runaway 3-0 victory. The win puts France at the top of Group E, which also includes Switzerland and Ecuador.
Going into the Sunday match between France and Honduras, no one knew quite how the players in the France football shirt would acquit themselves. After all, four years ago in South Africa, France was eliminated from the World Cup without a single win, losing group stage matches against Mexico and South

However, despite all of this glory, the France national soccer team has often lacked for one thing: year-to-year consistency. The team's victories at the World Cup, for instance, have often been followed by years with disastrous early eliminations or failures to qualify, and that fact has left many fans wondering whether the France 2014 FIFA World Cup home jersey will be associated with a good year for the team or a bad one.
2014: An "On" Year?
The unpredictable nature of the team hasn't kept France football shirt products from being big sellers on the Soccer Box online store, though. On the contrary, as the 2014 World Cup draws ever nearer, fans are accumulating gear to cheer on their favorite soccer teams on

France Fights to Return to the Peak of Football Prominence
So why is the France soccer jersey proving to be such a magnetic seller this year? It isn't because the France national football team is considered a frontrunner for World Cup domination. On the contrary, FIFA currently has the team situated at number 16 on its world team rankings. That's not a bad place to be by any means, but it does leave France trailing significantly behind point leaders like Spain (the defending champions) and Germany.
And yet the
- April 18, 2014As 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?

Feeling Les Blues: France's Shaky Start
Aside from their qualification into this year's big dance, there hasn't been very much to celebrate recently for fans of the French national football team. The team hasn't exactly been found lacking, but they also haven't found victory in any of their last major tournaments. The last few UEFA Euro tournaments saw team France to the quarterfinal stages, but they haven't seen an international championship since they won the

New Nike Kits Ready for the World Cup
Nike has produced the France football shirt in time for this summer, and they have designed something a little bit different to what we knew previously. The home strip is all blue, but it is a darker navy blue in color now. The only variation in color is a white collar and logo.
The away strip is white with the colors of the tricolor adorning the sleeves. This added bit of vibrancy in the design and is accompanied by dark navy shorts. The away strip has more depth than a home strip, but both have been made stylish by Nike.

The French national football team was established in 1904. They are 1 of only 8 teams to have had the prestigious honor of lifting the FIFA World Cup. They won in 1998, when the tournament was held in France. The 20th World Cup is due to be held in Brazil this summer. Following a tough qualifying campaign, the French supporters will be pleased to know that the France soccer team jersey will definitely be making an appearance.
Nike currently manufactures the France soccer team jersey. From 1972 - 2011 Adidas manufactured the team's kit, but in 2011 a new deal was signed with Nike. The value of the deal, which is due to expire in 2018, makes the France shirt the most expensive ever football shirt.

The French national football team played their 1st match in 1904 and has had some periods of great success.
Since the 1st ever FIFA World Cup in 1930 they are the only team to have entered every tournament, and have only been eliminated at the qualification stage on 6 occasions.
The next round will be held in Brazil next summer and it has been an uncertainty as to whether the France soccer jersey will feature.
In 2011 Nike took over the manufacturing of the France soccer jersey after a long standing agreement with Adidas came to an end.
Inspiration for their kits comes from the colors of the French national flag. The traditional blue shirt, white shorts and red socks replicate the 3 stripes on the French flag.
This is an iconic kit recognised as one of only 8 teams to have won the World Cup trophy.
