Friendly: missed return for the Bleuets, largely defeated by the young English


For its first match in 2023, the France hopeful team lost heavily in England (4-0). His first loss in 14 games.

England U21 made short work of the France U21 team (4-0).

The weather was nice in Leicester near the King Power Stadium and the match between Les Bleuets and the Young Lions was tempting.

And it was in terrible proportions for the men of Sylvain Ripoll.

With an experimental 11 where Johan Lepenant (OL) and Valentin Gendrey (Lecce) made their debut, Les Bleuets were initially volunteers.

In a rather balanced first act where Sylvain Ripoll's players held the ball and they were the ones who got the clearest chances.

To discover

  • The complete calendar of the Blues

Michael Olise first with a shot from the left (23rd), Rayan Cherki with a shot not strong enough after a super relay with Matthis Abline in the area (34th) and Manu Koné, with a distant attempt, slammed for a corner by James Trafford (42nd) were the most dangerous.

The storm had passed and the one that was about to hit French heads was incredibly violent.

Emile Smith Rowe with an uncrossed header (49th) first showed the way to his teammates.

Noni Madueke, who entered the game in place of the first scorer, took up the torch and did a lot of damage to the French defense.

The player, who arrived at Chelsea this winter, was a real poison.

In all good shots, he scored (77th) after a superb collective action then served Curtis Jones on a plateau for 3-0.

With a subtle madjer, the midfielder of Liverpool adjusted Lucas Chevalier (79th).

In a whirlwind of changes on both sides, the meeting did not really have its initial pace and Jacob Ramsey, well offset by a decidedly untenable Madueke, deceived the LOSC goalkeeper with a low strike. slightly touched by the latter (86th) to close the show.

Les Bleuets will have to recover from this debacle.

It was certainly a friendly match, but the signs do not lie.

In this second act, the English wave swept over the French team who could/didn't do anything.

The gap was huge then and Sylvain Ripoll's men were outplayed in all areas once things picked up speed.

The many absentees and the changes have, it is true, not made it easy for Badiashile's teammates.

They will have to show another face in 3 days in Vannes against Spain because 3 months from the Euro, tonight's performance does not bode well.
