Incredibly, France went two whole decades without winning a single match on home soil. And not back in the days of Uruguay, Italy and Hungary all looking like the best teams on Earth – oh, no. We mean much more recently.

Yep, Les Bleus had the likes of Eric Cantona at their disposal between 1986 and 2006 among others (we'd give you more examples but that would be giving you too many answers) and they still only managed to net at France '98 in all that time, before breakthrough in Germany. They then went on to the final of that tournament. 

Since then, they've gone and won the World Cup once more – and while the class of 2010 were a colossal disappointment, they were exciting once more in 2014 with goals aplenty in Brazil before they were knocked out by eventual winners, Germany.

So who have lit up the French side in the past 24 years? You tell us…
