Les Bleuets have beaten the Faroe Islands and are getting closer to qualifying for Euro U21

Invincible Hopes. Sylvain Ripoll’s proteges continued their unbeaten streak (6 wins, 1 draw) by logically winning against the Faroe Islands (2-0) on Thursday. Seductive in the game, the Bleuets could even have won more widely if they had shown a little more precision in front of goal. Current first in their group with 19 points out of a possible 21, and with a 6-point lead over Ukraine, Les Bleuets are getting closer and closer to qualifying.

Dominators through and through

Even if they were never really endangered by an uninspired Faroese team, the partners of Benoît Badiashile, captain for one evening in replacement of William Saliba called up to the A, were never at the Shelter from an equalizer to the csc of Johannesen (82nd) ​​after a good cross from Rutter, who celebrated his first selection in Espoirs, just like Warmed Omari and the midfielder of Crystal Palace Michaël Olise. For the rest, the Bleuets largely dominated the match, spending most of the game in the opposing camp.

Gouiri and his teammates multiplied their incursions into the area until Camavinga, alone twenty yards out, came to deliver his partners with a winning shot from the left foot, leaving Reynatrod helpless on his left. This is the second goal of the former Rennais with the Espoirs.


This is the number of goals conceded by Les Bleuets since the start of the qualifying campaign for Euro 2023. It was during the first leg against the Faroe Islands on September 6.

In a one-sided match, where the Blueberries never trembled, Maxence Caqueret’s teammates could have taken shelter more quickly if they had not harvested their multiple opportunities. A victory against Serbia in June and the men of Sylvain Ripoll would be almost assured of their qualification for Euro Espoirs 2023, organized in Romania and Georgia.

Only black point of the evening: Amine Adli, author of a convincing match on the right flank of the attack, left the field in tears in the 64th minute of the match, replaced by the Toulousain Ngoumou. The Bayer Leverkusen striker was obviously slammed behind the right thigh after a raid down the right wing.
