LIVE – Switzerland-France: Les Bleuets qualified for the quarterfinals!



It’s over ! Victory 4 goals to 1 for the Bleuets!

It’s a perfect 3/3, and above all a perfect gain in confidence for the rest of the competition.

Switzerland says goodbye to the Euro and Italy will still be there despite their defeat against Norway tonight.

4 minutes more

There will be 4 minutes of added time.

Lukeba also comes out

In the process, Diakité enters the lawn.

Exit from Kalulu

And entry into play of Simakan.

AND 4!


Goal of Caqueret for the Bleuets! The French captain is in the right place at the right time on this great collective movement. At the start, Le Fée’s pass triggered everything.

Italy come back second!

With this goal, the Nati returns behind Italy.



The vision of the game, the fact of relying on Gouiri, the hook, the perfect strike, including the kidney shot… 3-1 for the Bleuets!



The Nati goalkeeper made the parade necessary to prevent Cherki from scoring on this beautiful pass from Le Fée!

Exit from Males

First change for the Nati: Males gives way to Sohm, striker from Parma.

Entrance to Chotard

More timid in second after a superb first period, Thuram gave way to Chotard.

Norway open the scoring!

In the other match of the evening, Norway opened the scoring against Italy! (0-1) Switzerland therefore takes second place and is provisionally qualified for the quarter-finals!



Adroit in front of goal, Barcola leaves the Nati goalkeeper no chance on this shot. At the start of the action, he follows Gouiri well in the box. When the ball is lost, he places an unstoppable flat foot.

Yellow for Imeri

Lack of anti-game number 10 of the Nati by hanging Caqueret. Logical yellow.

A bit of calm

The two teams have been exchanging short passes in their camp for a few minutes. Something to blow everyone away.

Stergiou in the game

The central defender of the Nati remains attentive and prevents Gouiri at the last moment from arming his strike.

Cherki tries her luck

But his shot is blocked before finishing for a corner. The latter gives nothing.

Nice outing from Chevalier


Another beautiful and perfect intervention from the French porter. Good reading of the game on this pass for Ndoye.



The Bleuets goalkeeper saves his people on this strike from Amdouni. It was very hot. Cherki clearly does not help Nkounkou, often quite alone on his side. The corner gives nothing.

Barcola already standing

More fears than harm for the Lyonnais.

Barcola stays on the ground

No fault for the evening referee.

It’s in the wall!

Imeri sees the French wall repel his shot.

Free kick for the Nation

Fault by Badé and free kick to follow full axis, 25 meters from Chevalier’s goals… BEWARE of the Bleuets!

Here we go again ! (0-0)

Apart from that of Le Fée, no change to note at the break, we leave with the same actors on both sides!

HALF-TIME! (1-1)

End of the first 45 eventful minutes! Gouiri had opened the scoring for Les Bleuts but Ndoye quickly put the two teams back on a par. For the moment, France is in quarter!

Great center of Cherki

It was very well dosed by Cherki! Good counter from the Swiss defense on the delivery of Lukeba. The corner that follows does nothing.

Foul on Caqueret

Les Bleuets have the opportunity to score before the break on this free kick!

2 more minutes

There will be two minutes of additional time in this first period.

dead calm

A few songs from the French supporters descend from the stands but the atmosphere remains relatively calm all the same.

The Shaped Fairy

Nice entry from Enzo Le Fée whether in recovery, intentions or transitions.

Cherki in trouble

The mastery of the game is now Swiss! And one of the reasons may be the large gaps left by Cherki behind his back. The Nati understood it well!



2 goals in 3 games, Ndoye is intractable! After a nice cross and a nice shift, the Nati striker left Chevalier no chance by hitting from the left flank of the area!


After thirty minutes of play, the Bleuets lead 1-0 and scored on one of their two shots on target. The Nati always has the counter at zero on this aspect.

Yellow for Ndoye

First cracker of the game. Nice work by Le Fée at the same time.



The Swiss are better since they conceded the opener. And like this long shot from Rieder, they are unpredictable! Out of scope this time.

Missed French strike

Barcola’s attempt is completely crushed and does not worry the Nati goalkeeper. However, it was a great opportunity to double the lead after this counter-attack and yet another recovery from Thuram.



On a nice handover from Ndoye, Amdouni tries a crazy acrobatic gesture but does not find the frame. Be careful not to relax on the Blueberries side.

Entrance to The Fairy

The Fairy replaces Koné. Caqueret takes a step back.

Corner for the Nation

Nice head from Badé to ward off the danger on this cross. Corner to follow.

Koné is going out

The Bleuets midfielder will leave the pitch after just over a quarter of an hour of play. A big blow for the French coach.



Perfect opposite of the Stade Rennais striker! This is the first goal for him in this Euro. He then comes to show Olise’s jersey, a nice tribute.

Koné remains on the ground

Number 7 gets up but seems to be limping. Enough to give Gouiri time to think about his penalty.

Generous ?

Rieder still seems particularly late on his intervention on the left foot of Cherki. Logical penalty.



Thuram again…

What a show from the start of the game! He does everything to them! On this shot, he lacked success in finding Gouiri well in the area. The Swiss are taking the time to build their attack now.

Foul of Kalulu

The French defender is late on his intervention. The referee whistles foul.

Perfect Thuram

The Nice midfielder cleans up the heart of the game before passing the ball to Cherki on the right side. Good burst from the Swiss defense which recovers the ball.

Lukeba again

In extremis, the Lyonnais comes to counter this cross and sends it for a corner. It was for the French. The corner kick that follows does nothing. Better, the ball is back in the feet of Gouiri’s teammates.

Counter Strike

First danger for the Swiss! Caqueret tries his luck at the entrance to the area but Amenda is in the right place to counter this shot and relaunch his own.

The first for Chevalier

Nice catch of the ball from the Lille goalkeeper on this cross from Blum.

Attentive Lukeba

Good reading of the French number 14 on this cross from Rieder. Les Bleuets recover the ball.

Kick-off !

Let’s go to Romania! (0-0)

It is the Swiss, in red, who kick off this last match of the group stage of this Euro!

End of hymns

On to the game now!

1 point

A brief reminder of the issue: Les Bleuets only need one point to qualify for the next round of this Euro Espoirs.

Kick-off is imminent!

The players enter the lawn of Constantin Rădulescu, accompanied by the referee of the meeting, the Dane Morten Krogh.

Explanations of Ripoll’s choices

RMC SPORT INFO – This Wednesday, France will face Switzerland with Gouiri at the forefront and Cherki on the left.

The Montpellier player will not be able to hold his place this Wednesday.

Amine Adli is suspended, while the injured Michael Olise’s tournament is already over. Arnaud Kalimuendo, who started the first two games in peak, will be on the bench at the start of the game to breathe.

A small arrangement between friends?

A draw between Switzerland and France would eliminate Italy. But Sylvain Ripoll assures that there will be no arrangement

Hello and welcome to this live Switzerland-France

It is tonight that the group gives its verdict: the France team is playing its last match in Group D this Wednesday, against Switzerland. Les Bleuets want to confirm their place in the quarter-finals of the Euro Espoir.

For that, you have to take a minimum point against the Swiss. The French team comes out of two wins in two games but a defeat could eliminate it if, at the same time, Italy beats Norway. So to avoid any fear and a disaster scenario, it is better to draw or win.

It will be without Michael Olise. The sole scorer of the success against Norway is out of the rest of the competition.

Switzerland-France, kick-off at 8:45 p.m. in Cluj-Napoca in Romania. Match broadcast on TV on W9 and BeIN Sport 1. Match to follow live radio on RMC and in our live-text on RMC Sport.
