The sports daily L’Équipe is amused to constitute the type of Monegasque players most selected in the French team. And that gives a rather (very) competitive team.
Monaco, the reservoir of the Blues! While Aurélien Tchouameni became in September the 69th player of the Principality’s club selected for the France A team, many Monegasque legends have marked the history of the Tricolores. An opportunity quite found by L’Équipe, in this international truce in November, to try out the exercise of the French international type by club. The sports daily has thus retained the largest number of selections per position honored under the jersey at the Diagonal, and lying in function a composition that would like to thrill more than one team.

Four World and European champions in the XI
Because AS Monaco, the second club in France to have provided the most players to the Blues behind OM, has resources. No less than four World Champions (Fabien Barthez, David Trezeguet, Djibril Sidibé and Thomas Lemar) and as many Euro winners (Manuel Amoros, Bruno Bellone, Fabien Barthez and David Trezeguet), are part of this starting eleven. In any case, they all wore the red and white jersey when they were crowned in the national team.
Six other champions made in Monaco
Because we can add to these six players, Emmanuel Petit, trained at the Academy, who had 15 selections with France when he was playing for AS Monaco, but became world and European champion as a player of ‘Arsenal. As well as Bernard Genghini (Euro 1984), Lilian Thuram (World Cup 1998 and Euro 2000) Thierry Henry (1998-2000), Youri Djorkaeff (1998-2000) or even Kylian Mbappé (World Cup 2018). Very good people, who, in terms of the number of selections, are relegated to the bench! Despite everything, the eleven Monegasque has big arguments.
Four scorers in the final
With an old-fashioned Raymond Kaelbel – Marcel Artelesa hinge, a midfielder Jean and Emmanuel Petit and a Bellone-Trezeguet attack, this French team AS Monaco version looks very good. And it also has in its ranks three scorers in the final of a trophy won by the Blues, trained at the Academy: Bruno Bellone (Euro 84), Emmanuel Petit (World Cup 1998 and David Trezeguet (Euro 2000). Without forgetting Kylian Mbappé once again, decisive in the final against Croatia in Russia in 2018. So, is this eleven talking to you?
