Foot: France with South Korea, Gambia and Honduras at the U20 World Cup


Les Bleuets are served for the U20 World Cup which will take place in Argentina from May 20 to June 11.

Rather lenient draw for the France U20 team which fell on Friday in a group with South Korea, Gambia and Honduras in the 2023 World Cup in its category which will take place in Argentina from May 20 to June 11.

Winner of the trophy in 2013 with the Paul Pogba generation, Les Bleuets trained by Landry Chauvin and led by Montpellier's Elye Wahi, Mohamed-Ali Cho of Real Sociedad or former Parisian Édouard Michut (Sunderland) were seeded.

The first two from each of the six groups plus the four best third-place finishers will qualify for the round of 16.

The draw led by former Argentinian and French internationals Juan Pablo Sorin and David Trezeguet offered an Italy-Brazil poster in Group D. Argentina, holders of the record with six final victories, will face Uzbekistan, Guatemala and New Zealand.

The International Football Federation (Fifa) decided on Monday to relocate the competition to Argentina after having withdrawn the organization from Indonesia following the refusal of two provincial governors to welcome the Israeli team.

The Mondial normally takes place every two years but the 2021 edition was canceled during the pandemic.

The six groups

A: Argentina, Uzbekistan, Guatemala, New Zealand

B: United States, Ecuador, Fiji, Slovakia

C: Senegal, Japan, Israel, Colombia

D: Italy, Brazil, Nigeria, Dominican Republic

E: Uruguay, Iraq, England, Tunisia

W: France, South Korea, Gambia, Honduras
