The U19 of Paris FC surround the referee who has just whistled the end of the final of the U19 championship. Their disappointment is palpable. A few seconds earlier, there was a big mess in the box and a strike from Ethan Mbappe, countered in the corner. It's over for Zoumana Camara's team. PSG, who fell to OM in the semi-finals, lost ace to Nantes. A strike from Nantes striker Bahereba Guirassy (2-1, 74th) made the difference at the start of the last quarter of an hour.
For Nantes, the euphoria continues after the festive evening of staying in L1 Saturday night at the Beaujoire. Before succeeding Antoine Kombouaré a month ago, Pierre Aristouy was also the coach of the Nantes U19s who won their 2nd France championship title in a row.
On the field of the Baradel stadium in Aurillac (Cantal), PSG had not presented itself with all its assets. Holders in L1 Saturday against Clermont (2-3), Warren Zaire-Emery and El Chadaille Bitshiabu could not play with their friends from the training center. Striker Ilyes Housni was ill (gastro). If Zoumana Camara still started him, he could not evolve at his usual level.
Nantes had also entered the match better. On a mistake by captain Hugo Lamy, Mafoubi deceived Louis Mouquet (1-0, 9th). But after finding the bar (32nd), Noha Lemina, the best Parisian this Sunday afternoon, equalizes on a sumptuous strike (1-1, 44th).

If PSG seemed to take the lead at the beginning of the second half, Gharbi (51st) and Muntu Wa Mungu (61st) failed to achieve the highlight of their team. At the end, the Parisians, diminished and tired, gave up physically and conceded this goal after a personal feat in the form of a stab from Guirassy.
