The France U-21 team, coached by French “legend” Thierry Henry, will play a friendly in Le Havre, France on the morning of the 21st.
It’s a big game. Since Henri took over, the French U-21s have gone unbeaten, before suffering a shock defeat against Austria in their Euro U-21 qualifier. It was Henri’s first defeat, so he needs to turn things around. He’s determined to bounce back with a friendly on June 21.토토사이트
France’s opponent is the South Korean Olympic team, led by Hwang Sun-hong. The team traveled to France to prepare for the final qualifier for the Paris 2024 Olympics and drew 0-0 with Le Havre AC (Ligue 1) in a practice match on Sept. 17. The highlight of the trip is the match against Henriho.
“The French national team is a very international team,” Hwang said of the matchup. We will try to prepare for the final qualifiers with a good understanding of what we need to improve and what we need to keep,” he said.
Then the French media broke the news. The French version of the UK’s 90min, Foot Mercato, published a preview of Henri and Hwang.
“The French U-21 national team, led by coach Henri, will play an exhibition match against the Korean U-23 national team. It’s a chance for Henri to get his team back on track after their loss to Austria. An important challenge awaits.”
The name of Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lee Kang-in came to mind. He named Lee as the player to watch out for in the Korean U-23 team. While predicting South Korea’s best 11 for the game against France, they put Lee’s name in the starting lineup.
“France will have the edge on South Korea, but the real threat to the Korean national team is PSG’s Lee Kang-in. We believe in the competitiveness of the French national team, who are ready to take him down.” He was very wary of Lee Kang-in.
He predicted a 2-1 win for France.
It’s understandable to be afraid of Lee Kang-in after his stellar performance at PSG, but it’s misplaced. Lee won’t be joining Hwang Sun-hong. There is no need for Henri to be nervous, and there is no need for the France U-21 team to be nervous.
Lee is in China right now. He’s with the South Korea A team. He is with the South Korea A team as they prepare to face China in the second Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup. In South Korea, Hwang Sun-hong will play France on the morning of the 21st and Jürgen Klinsmann will face China on the afternoon of the 21st.
He’s likely to start against China. It’s not like they’ll be traveling to France to play the French U-21s right after this game.
