Our Under 21 realized a great performance in winning in Italy, 3-2. This is a great achievement as this can only reinforce them as the clear favorites of the up coming Euro, in May. It can also give them a psychological edge over the Italians, should they meet again, during the Euro. It's great to see our Under 21 performing so brillantly, this is the result of a marvelous system and youth policy, which is paying its dividend big time, at all level. Our future is as bright as it gets!:star::star::proud:
Now, can they take the relay of the A team and continue in the same direction, dominating the world of football, and in style? This Under 21 team, will probably be the France Team for 2006 and beyond.

ALLEZ LES BLEUETS!!!:star::star::proud::stuckup:

We should give the Italians a break as they won't be able to stand us anymore and start bombtracking in Paris. :D ;) :tongue:

the two leftbacks we used in this match are brilliant, JULIEN ESCUDÈ and ANTHONY REVEILLÈRE ! both playing for Stade Rennais...

stiker PIERRE-ALAIN FRAU is going to be a world star to, so is DJIBRIL CISSÈ!

one of my other favourites in this team is JULIEN SABLÈ (Saint-Etienne) and SYLVAIN ARMAND (FC Nantes)


well this hole team is great!!!!!

These two teams will probably meet again in the final in the tournament in Switzerland on May 28. France have the easirer group with Belgium, Greece and Czech Rep. Was this France's absolute strongest team?
