England U21 vs France U21 Today’s Soccer Prediction
England will play in Italy this summer its sixth European championship ranks. In the last edition played in 2017, the selection was well represented finishing in 3rd place. In order to qualify for this Euro U21, striker Abraham’s partners took first place in the group 4 qualifiers, ahead of the Netherlands, Ukraine, Scotland, Latvia and Andorra. Last March, they played 2 friendlies. After being held in check by Poland (1-1), they lost to Germany (1-2).
Despite very beautiful generations, the team of France had not qualified for any championship of Europe Espoirs since 2006, 6 editions. Unbeaten in their playoff hen (9 wins and 1 draw), the Blueberries overcame the competition in Group 9, ahead of Slovenia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan and Luxembourg.

The staff for England U21 vs France U21
In this English selection, we find some elements well known to the general public. Defender Wan-Bissaka (Crystal Palace), midfielders Sessegon (Fulham) and Maddison (Leicester) and strikers Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Abraham (Aston Villa) and Gray (Leicester) are already playing a real role in their respective clubs. Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden is a real nugget that should get more playing time next year.
Coach Sylvain Ripoll had to face tough choices to form his group. Injured, the striker of Lyon Terrier could not honor his convocation just like the usual captain Abdou Diallo, while Mukiele, Diop, Maxime Lopez or Saint-Maximin were not summoned. The team obviously has a great pace, especially with goalkeeper Bernardoni (Nîmes), defenders Amian (Toulouse) and Upamecano (Leipzig), Tousart (Lyon), Aouar (Lyon) and Ntcham (Celtic) and Dembélé ( Lyon), Bamba (Lille), Ikoné (Lille) and Thuram (Guingamp). For this first match, the Parisian side Dagba is blocked in the infirmary. An uncertain time, Ikoné should be able to start.
