Les Bleuets can go on vacation with peace of mind. Hung 3-3 Thursday evening in Istanbul by a valiant Ukrainian team in the Group H qualifier, the France team nevertheless provided the essentials by validating its ticket for the Euro Espoirs de football which will be played in the summer of 2023 in Romania. and in Georgia.

There was only one task left for them to do. They filled it without flinching even if the manner was not always there this Thursday evening against a Ukrainian team with two faces. Comfortable leader of their group before this match against Ukraine, France immediately displayed their ambitions by opening the scoring in the first minutes of play on a fine strike from Abline at the near post (0-1, 3rd) .

Determined to finish their very nice qualifying run in style, Sylvain Ripoll’s players nevertheless very quickly revealed some glaring leaps of concentration in defense like the Ukrainian equalizer on a splendid strike in the top corner of Vanat (1 -1, 6th). Joined in the score only three minutes after Abline’s goal, BenoĆ®t Badiashile’s teammates then took matters into their own hands.

Les Bleuets trapped by the false Ukrainian rhythm

Countered for the first time by the Ukrainian goalkeeper Trubin, Thuram restored the advantage to the Bleuets on the following action thanks to a good serve back from the untenable Truffert (1-2, 9th). Back in front on the scoreboard, France gave themselves more air again shortly before the half-hour mark, Gouiri taking advantage of good work by Truffert to crucify Trubin a third time with a ball rolled up while in finesse (1-3, 25th).

Largely superior to their evening host, Sylvain Ripoll’s players seemed to be heading straight for another quiet victory in these playoffs. But it was nothing. Gradually falling into the false rhythm of the Ukrainians, the Habs folded for the first time just before the break, the unfortunate Badiashile diverting the cross from the right of Sych (2-3, 44th) into his own goals.

Guilty of several rough raises which could have cost the Bleuets dearly, the French captain was again involved in the third Ukrainian goal, Bondarenko’s off-target shot ending up in Meslier’s net after being blocked (again ) by the AS Monaco defender.

Joined a second time in the score by a much more enterprising Ukrainian team than in the first act, the Bleuets then offered nothing more. Visibly exhausted by a very trying season, Sylvain Ripoll’s players were content to manage their draw, resisting as best they could a few well-regarded opposing offensives. Logically held in check (3-3) by Ukraine following a rather dull second half, France validates its ticket for Euro Espoirs 2023 and ends its season with the satisfaction of duty accomplished.
