Spain U21 vs France U21, Thursday’s match for the semi-final encounter of the UEFA EURO U21 at the Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
Spain plays this semi-final in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship with France, and is considered as one of the candidates to win this competition.
Spain are doing an excellent job in training youngsters, and are looking to the future with great optimism, they are trying to balance the main team again, since it was left adrift with many “stars” to leave the national team.
Now they need to look for and include these young players for the future that seems to be laughing. Coach Luis de la Fuente is aiming to win this trophy and then should not make too many changes in the team, and certainly Spain will soon start looking for the result.
The French team are not the best, but there are also some young women with a lot of potential for the future of the French team.
They have talented players like Ibrahima Konaté and Houssem Aouar, but overall this set does not have the quality enough to be the backbone of the main team. To reach this stage France had two wins and a draw.
France’s U21s face-to-face with Spain have two wins, three draws and a loss. The French in this competition have only scored three goals and have not created many opportunities, in the last two games they kicked fifteen times and with only one goal scored. Jonathan Bamba is out of the game due to injury for this Thursday’s match.
Spain Under-21 is in good shape despite having started this season with a loss. They have a very balanced team, but France is a team that also has its potential, and so certainly dreams about this title.
