They will be fine. Despite a less controlled last game for the French team of hopes, and a draw (3-3) against the Ukrainians on Thursday, June 9, the Blueberries will go well with the Euro in 2023 which will be played in Georgia and Romania. Sylvain Ripoll’s players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Which could have made the job easier for the French.

It was the goals of Matthis Abline (3rd), Kephren Thuram (10th) and Amine Gouiri (25th) that enlivened the evening of the young tricolors in a match relocated to the stadium Esenyurt Necmi Kadioglu of Istanbul, due to the war in Ukraine.

With this draw no doubt tinged with bitterness as the possibilities flooded in, this is only the second little pebble in the boot of Ripoll’s men. Against the Faroe Islands, in the second game of the qualifying round, the Blueberries had indeed been hung (1-1). Other than that, victories for teammates Benoit Badiashile, captain of the team.

With Amine Gouiri’s five goals in ten games, the France espoirs team dominated with outstanding games, especially against Armenia (7-0 and 4-1). They will be among the contenders for the final victory, in July 2023, for the European Under-21 Championship.
