Thierry Henry's France Olympics team are the 9/4 favourites to win Gold Medal in Paris this summer

This summer sees the Olympic Games take place in Paris and it's Thierry Henry's France side who lead the way in the odds with betting sites to win Gold in their home Olympics.

Henry was named as France's U23's manager in August last year with the plan in mind of managing his country at the Olympic Games this summer.

The 1998 FIFA World Cup winner and legendary former Premier League player has named his 25-man preliminary squad already with the shortlist whittling down to the final 22 on July 3.

Bet365's latest betting odds now puts France as the clear favourites in the market ahead of Argentina and Spain, with last Olympic's winners Brazil failing to qualify for this summer's event.

Henry's team features big names such as Crystal Palace duo Jean-Philippe Mateta and Michael Olise

Massive names feature in Thierry Henry's France side with Crystal Palace players Jean-Philippe Mateta and Michael Olise two of the big figures in the squad heading to Paris.

Former Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is an overage player in the squad along with Mateta, with Kylian Mbappe confirming that he would not join up with the squad this summer.

France still have one overage player spot but it looks increasingly unlikely that this will now be filled following Mbappe's rejection and Henry may well stick with the squad he has.

The 25-man preliminary squad is:

Goalkeepers: Lucas Chevalier (Lille), Guillaume Restes (Toulouse), Mkambadio Obed (Paris FC), Robin Risser (Dijon).

Defenders: Bafodé Diakité (Lille), Castello Lukeba (Leipzig), Maxime Estève (Burnley), Kiliann Sildillia (Fribourg), Bradley Locko (Brest), Adrien Truffert (Rennes), Lenny Yoro (Lille).

Midfielders : Joris Chotard (Montpellier), Désiré Doué (Rennes), Khephren Thuram (Nice), Enzo Millot (Stuttgart), Manu Koné (Mönchengladbach), Maghnes Akliouche (Monaco), Lesley Ugowhokcu (Chelsea), Warren Zaïre-Emery (PSG).

Forwards: Michael Olise (Crystal Palace), Arnaud Kalimuendo (Rennes), Bradley Barcola (PSG), Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon), Jean-Philippe Mateta (Crystal Palace), Mathys Tel (Bayern Munich).


Argentina follow behind France in the betting odds as 13/5 second favourites

Argentina are the second favourites in the market with former player Javier Mascherano the coach who will be taking charge of his country in Paris this summer.

Mascherano's warm-up squad for the tournament is dominated by players who are playing in Argentina with the overage players yet to be announced.

It's expected that Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez and Benfica's Nicolas Otamendi will be two of the three overage players in the squad.
