, they have a 23 man squad and 8 of the m play in France. In the final there was 1 started plying his trade in France & 1 lad off the bench still there (although he's off to Liverpool).
That's shit all to do with the league.
There may be a dozen or 2 top players of French nationality, but they've become world class BECAUSE they moved from France during formative years.
Obviously (as with anything) there are individual exceptions - but they don't disprove the rule.
Holland, Italy, France? At the moment, tearing up trees there shows nothing but a bit of potential.
