France U21 – Romania U21 : 0-0 (0-0)
The kick-off, the deal was simple for the Blueberries : a draw against Romania, and the doors of the semi-finals of the tournament, as well as those of the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo (Japan) opened wide. Despite this data, combined with a hostile environment, to the cause of the Romanians, the French team does temporisait not had a start to the match very convincingly. The protected Sylvain Ripoll made a collective game of good quality. For ten big minutes. Then, Blueberries were a waste on technical and unusual. Romania took the opportunity and showed himself to be threatening. On a head-lobed, Dragos Nedelcu, Paul Bernardoni and his team-mates flirted with the corrections (16th). Less than 120 seconds later, the danger was ever-present in the surface of French and pushed Kelvin Amian to intervene in a very contested in front of Alexandru Cicaldau (18th). The central referee didn’t scare easy, fortunately. Time progressed and the match lost in quality and in intensity. The intense heat prevailing on the Emilia-Romagna region could partly explain this first act overall disappointing.
After the recovery, the Tricolor went to the front. More technically precise and more biting than of the Romanians visibly blunt, they differed with some sequences of the game very interesting. But Blueberries, more fluid in their transmissions, are not able to harm the beautiful organization of the visitors. Worse, as in the first act, they conceded the most big chances. On a marvel of cross-signed Ianis Hagi, George Puscas took Ibrahima Konaté speed and then stood at the duel in front of Paul Bernardoni. The goalkeeper for Girondins de Bordeaux to meet the present and was decisive in taclant cleanly the ball, taking advantage of the control too long from the attacker to Palermo (68th). Barely ten minutes later, France was again a deviation of the head of Rus, diverted then by Lucas Tousart, quite close to scoring accidentally into his own goal (78th). These two alerts in the past, Blueberries were able to keep good to obtain, at the end of a match disappointing but overall mastered, a place in the semi-final against Spain and a ticket to Japan, and the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
