The Group F has the three most powerful teams of the tournament i.e., World Cup winners France, defending Euro champions Portugal and the 4 Times World champions Germany. The first game of this group will be with France taking on Germany.
On one hand the French team will look to continue its dominance after capturing the World Cup as they look to bring their strong squad to the pitch. France is ranked only after Belgium in the FIFA rankings as they are the second-best football playing nation in the world.
