Ballo-Touré and the Espoirs enter Euro U21 playoffs
Les Bleuets begin their Euro U21 playoff run this Tuesday. They face a tough opponent in their first match: England.

The France under-21 team had not participated in the UEFA Euro U21 tournament since 2006. Guided by Sylvain Ripoll, the Bleuets were nearly perfect in qualifiers (9 wins, 1 draw).

This Tuesday, they will have to prove their current form against England, who finished at the top of group 4 in qualifying.

Les Bleuets are in Group C with England, and will also face Croatia and Romania.

In Group B, Benjamin Henrichs and Germany U21 have already defeated Denmark (3-1). The Germans take control of their group. The Monegasque has been on the left flank of the defense for the Germans.
