Three imaginary points before Tokyo.
The victory against South Korea (2-1), this Friday afternoon, however, took a long time to take shape, especially since it was the Koreans who opened the scoring through Kwon at the 63e minute, on a penalty) caused by Modibo Sagnan.

Scrambled, battered, but enterprising, especially after the opener, France returned to the match after a great collective movement. At the 83e minute, a cross from Téji Savanier – his favorite weapon this afternoon – finds Melvin Bard in the area, then Anthony Caci behind. His shot off target is well picked up by Randal Kolo Muani and allows the Blues to return to the game. But things do not end there: the Rémois Nathanaël Mbuku – well helped by the Korean goalkeeper – gives the victory to his team with a vicious strike in the 88e. Six players came into play during the match, including the two scorers, on the French side.
100% success for France in preparation!
