France v New- Zealand U20 WC 4-0

All change for Gilles Eyquem with 5 players in and 5 out.

Same 4-2-3-1 system withthe following line-up

Durand, Gagnet Tounkara M’Bock Bathy Dafeur, Bueno Toletti, Thomas Lavogez Diani, Tarrieu

Defensively it was an improved performance with a clean sheet and a better balance in the team overall. Bueno was excellent in the holding role and when she went forward Toletti was there to cover for her. Diani again superb on the wing as well as Thomas on the other wing.

Again the coach decided to sub some players early to give them a rest, he has actually played 17 out of the 18 outfield players with Saint Sans Levacher the 3rd choice center the only one without a minute on the pitch so far.

Statistics are good for this game 30 shots v 4, 17 on target v 4


Durand : good performance

Gagnet : good attacking play, hard working

Tounkara : good performance imporved from first game

M’Bock Bathy : good performance, solid

Dafeur : went forward, good performance

Bueno : superb performance in the 6 role, added some attacking bite as well

Toletti : missed a couple of easy chances, technical leadership in midfield as good as ever

Thomas : loads of quality run and movement on the right wing

Lavogez : good 60 minutes in the playmaker role, could have been sent off for a petulant kick

Diani : Another excellent eprformance from the center forward exiled on the wing

Tarrieu :  lacked clinical finishing, worked hard for the team


subs :

Le Bihan splendid double when she cam on with 30 to go. Deserve a start v Paraguay

Robert came on a wing and did a good job

Sarr did not have time to do much damage late in the game
