Plus, only 3 of there 20 players currently on the French team were born outside of the French mainland. Don't see what all the fuss about them being a bunch of recent immigrants is when the big majority of them are French born. France has immigrants from all over the world, Michel Platini, one of the absolute French futbol legends is of Italian ancestry, Zidane, another legend is of Algerian ancestry. This isn't something new with the French.

Just pointing out that the comparison is incorrect, as all those NBA players were born here and none of them immigrated to this country.

Totally different. The US was built by immigrants, including a huge slave population from which most of those players descend.

When a European team has more black players than white, that's weird.

I'm so proud to be black today.

Imagine if our American blacks trained for soccer extensively...GAME OVER.

Kyrie wasn't born in the USA.
Some of the greatest players to play for the Dream team weren't born in the USA.

Have you read about the Atlantic slave trade? Again, how is it any different? Do you think Africa and America are the only countries with black people?
You know it is like a 2 hour flight from Paris to Africa, right?

Hilarious.

Uhm yeah the slave trade mostly placed slaves in the new world. There are more blacks in Brazil than the US. Plenty in many Latin American countries. The black population has always been large in the US and other new world countries even before many were formed. All new world countries were built by immigrants including slaves.

France is different.

France in a European country.
Europe is the white homeland; all European countries are predominantly white.
France was 99% white before about 1960 and is still about 85% white.
For a European country to have a mostly black team looks funny to me. Sorry if you find that offensive. I think it looks funny and weird.

Hakeem, Ewing, etc?

Didn't immigrate? So how far back does a family have needed to been there for it to count according to you?

They are French. They were born in France. Grew up in France. Only ever lived there. They are as French as could be.

If you were to apply the same logic to the USA soccer team, your best player isn't American then.
