The Atletico Madrid forward led his side to European glory with a brace against Marseille on Wednesday and looks set to take his form into Russia 2018

Antoine Griezmann warmed up for the World Cup in style with a man of the match performance in the Europa League final on Wednesday night.

The French forward scored Atletico Madrid’s first two goals as his side cruised past Marseille 3-0 in Lyon, with Gabi netting late on to gloss the result.

After failing to find the net at the World Cup four years ago, Griezmann will have a score to settle and is 12/1 (13.0) with dabblebet to win the Golden Boot in Russia.

France, meanwhile, can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) to win the World Cup for the first time since 1998 and make up for poor performances at two of the four tournaments since they last won it.

A relatively straightforward group consisting of Australia, Peru and Denmark means Les Bleus could well collect nine points on their way to the knockouts – a selection which is 8/5 (2.60) with dabblebet.

If everything goes to form, then the quarter-finals will provide them with a first real test of either Portugal or Spain, and dabblebet offer 3/1 (4.0) that their journey ends in that round.

The online bookmaker are also 7/2 (4.50) about France reaching the semi-final and 7/1 (8.0) on them losing in the final.

However, both the 2002 and 2010 saw major disappointments for France as they were knocked out in the group stages both times and those past failures will still likely loom over the head of the players.

It is worth noting that this squad has the ability to achieve more than either of their last two and with the likes of Griezmann up front looking to build upon his Europa League final performance, Les Bleus could be worth keeping an eye on in Russia.
