SPAIN 2 FRANCE 1 | FIFA U-20 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GROUP A GAME RESULT

Spain won 2 -1 France in its last Group A match of the FIFA U-20 World Championships in Turkey to take Top spot & wait to see which Nation to play next Tuesday. That team will be any of the third placed from Groups C, D or F which will be confirmed.

Spain put in a marvellous 60 minutes of Football & then fell in intensity & could have even lost the game. During the best moments for Spain Paco Alcacer scored the opener in the 23rd min from a Jese pass, & then Jese took full advantage from a French defensive mistake to score the second in the 56th min for the Spanish U-20 Football Team.

From here France lifted substantially & was very unlucky as they hit the "wood-work" twice. Firstly in the 74th min by Kondogbia & a secondly by Sabaly in the 84th min. France was rewarded for their great second half effort with a goal that finally came for them in the 91st min from Vion.


The tournament now enters the "business end" phase & Spain will be tested & will need to attempt to avoid inconsistency in the latter part of their games. Worrying drop in form seen today by Spain that should alert the Spanish technical staff.
