Les Bleuets ensure against the Faroe Islands but lose Amine Adli

First in group H with 16 points (5 successes, 1 draw) and therefore without any defeat on the clock, the France Espoirs team received the Faroe Islands, third, on behalf of the 8th day of the Euro 2023 qualifiers. Last September, the Faroese had managed to thwart Sylvain Ripoll’s men and thus snatch the draw (1-1). For this revenge, the former Lorient coach lined up an impressive team on paper with an attack composed of Gouiri, Kalimuendo, Amine Adli and Sofiane Diop. In midfield, Maxence Caqueret was aligned with Eduardo Camavinga while Stade Rennais central defender Warmed Omari celebrated his first selection.

Unsurprisingly, the start of the match was largely in favor of the Bleuets who monopolized the ball. Facing a fairly defensive Faroe Islands team, Camavinga’s teammates looked for the loophole and turned the leather in the opposing half. And the French domination was rewarded with a very nice goal from the Real Madrid player. About twenty meters from the cages, he dribbled past a player and unleashed a sublime shot that left the Faroese goalkeeper helpless. And the score would have been heavier at half-time thanks to a very stirring Amine Adli but his teammates lacked precision in the last gesture.

Blueberries lose Amine Adli

With a very low opponent, the Bleuets clearly dominated their subject and Amine Adli again distinguished himself with a good strike (53rd). The Bayer Leverkusen player had his partners play and combined very well with Gouiri and Kalimuendo up front. But at the hour mark, he was forced to give up his place after a violent breakdown behind the right thigh. In tears, he gave way to Michael Olise who was also celebrating his first with the Hopes. But it was another entrant who shone afterwards.

Just entering the game, Georginio Rutter, brilliant on the side of Hoffenheim was quick to show. After a very good overflow from him on the right lane, he sent a strong cross into the area. Caught up in speed, Aki Johannesen, the central defender, deflected the ball into his own goal (82nd). The score will no longer move. Les Bleuets provide the essentials and consolidate first place in Group H. Qualification is not very far away now.
