As if French football needed that now.
While the French team is going through a period of trouble, mixing disappointing sporting results (2-0 defeat against Denmark) and now famous extra-sporting affairs, the Bleuets have not restored the image of their elders.

This Sunday, the U18s were opposed to the Polish U18s in the Lafarge tournament in Limoges.
A rhythmic and tight match.
If the Poles quickly opened the scoring from the 5th minute, the French team reacted well by equalizing in the 22nd minute thanks to Mokrane Bentoumi and even taking the lead with a goal from Ilyès Housni.
Even if the opponents of the day equalized in the 27th, nothing foreshadowed the scenario of the second period.
A catastrophic second period
Intense match, the score was 2-2 when the match resumed.
But very quickly, it is the total crack of the France team.
A first expulsion in the 55th, a second six minutes later.
Poland took the lead in the 70th minute and then sent off for the third time in the 72nd minute.
In a now chopped match that no longer really makes sense, Darnell Bile makes a rough tackle that infuriates the Poles.
Yet another outburst of anger for the Blueberries, Darnell Bile headbutts his opponent.
Fourth red card and game stopped in the 77th.
Some may never return to the France team
Bernard Diomede, coach of the U18s
Some may never make their return to the France team.
They have to understand.
Others had a good attitude, tried to calm things down. We will try to analyze carefully, coldly, those who behaved well and those who behaved badly.
As a coach, I will sanction the players I have to sanction
,” declared Bernard Diomède, coach of the U18s, after the match.
