Euro U19: France dominates Romania and qualifies for the semi-finals

Impressive for its entry into the running against Slovakia on Saturday (5-0), the France U19 team challenged Romania on Tuesday evening for its second match in the Euro in the category. Still as dominant but less precise in front of the goals, the Blues won another deserved victory (2-1). Enough to validate their ticket for the semi-finals, but also the qualification for the next U20 World Cup, in Indonesia in 2023.

Against an opponent defeated by Italy this weekend, the French were able to take shelter quickly. Already a scorer against Slovakia, Loum Tchaouna launched his own before the quarter-hour mark, after a quick action initiated by a superb pass from Abdoullah Ba (12th). Eight minutes later, Rémois Martin Adeline, found by Jordan Varela in the heart of the area, doubled the bet with a low shot (20th).

On his take, the France team crushed the first period. At the break, she already had 19 shots and 71% possession. The Romanians had not tried their luck in 45 minutes. The debates were relatively balanced after the break. And the French could have ended up regretting their lack of realism and the good performance of Robert Popa in the Romanian cages (30 shots including 8 on target). Because, at the end of the match, Andrei Coubis managed to reduce the gap on his team’s first shot on target (82nd). Without consequence. France leads Group A, tied on points with Italy, which they will meet again this Friday for the final group match (5:30 p.m.).
