France Fans Vote On Who Should Be Strikers For Euros

What if all football associations ran their national teams based on fans' votes? It would certainly make things interesting, just think how many fewer caps Emile Heskey would have for instance, or maybe it would be more with you lot voting for Bolton's finest to be playing now.

Of course that's not what's actually going on in France ahead of the Euros there this summer, although we implore them to give it ago sod who Didier Deschamps wants in his team, but they were polling their readers to see who they'd prefer up front at the tournament.

Deschamps has quite the list to chose from, although it's no Kane, Vardy, Rooney, Sturridge, Welbeck and Heskey, and the fans picked Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann as their number one with Madrid counterpart Karim Benzema down in fourth. Somewhat surprisingly is the order of Olivier Giroud and Anthony Martial...

Despite Martial's explosive start to life at Old Trafford it is still a surprise to see the former Monaco forward ahead of Giroud on the list with the Arsenal man bagging 22 goals in all competitions this season ahead of Martial's 10.

Remember when Alexandre Lacazette thought staying in France would help his chances of making Euro 2016? Down in 11th on the list, ouch!
