Players like Laurent Koscielny, Kevin Gameiro and Marvin Martin have seen time with the squad in recent games.
If these players—and others—are eventually selected, France will have a team with some inexperience on the international level.
Inexperience may not be such a bad thing where these players are concerned. With all the hype players like Martin and Gameiro have received, and the solid performances from Koscielny, they could probably all be counted on to put their best foot forward and prove themselves on this big stage.
It's not just the recent additions who will have a lot to prove, though. Samir Nasri and Franck Ribery especially stand out as players who need to lead the team forward.
Patrice Evra will have to atone for his actions in the 2010 World Cup and some solid performances will go a long way towards doing that.
The team as a whole will have a lot to prove and with the talent at their disposal, they may end up having a successful time in the tournament.
