There will be two minutes of additional time. The Dutch continue to spin the ball without finding an opening.
The French are now playing very low on the pitch. They are compact, but are prone to errors as on the occasion of Kluivert. Les Bleuets are clearly waiting for half-time.
Kluivert! What a failure of the Dutch striker! Left completely alone at the entrance to the surface, he sends his strike far above. Not sure his position was lawful, however. Be careful not to fall asleep on the French side!
It was well captured by Bijlow who won ahead of Upamecano. On the block, Malacia rushes and the Bleuets recover a six meters.
The pace is not very high in this match with two teams which do not exercise a lot of pressure and recover the ball quite low. A good free kick, however, for the Bleuets after a new fault from De Wit, already warned, on Aouar.
Conversely, the Dutch seem to have taken a blow to the head since the opening of the scoring. They are unable to find space in the French defense for the moment. We must nevertheless remain focused on the French side.
The French are playing better and better. Diaby finds Aouar with a delicious dive over the defense. The Lyonnais misses his recovery in a difficult position.
What a festival again Ikoné who takes speed all the Dutch defense on a cons … His pass for Diaby is narrowly intercepted, otherwise it could be decisive. The Bleuets will be able to play against, and they have the necessary speed to make them grow.
Scorer Dayot Upamecano will also leave RB Leipzig this summer. He will play next season under the colors of Bayern Munich, which paid the 40 million of his release clause to recruit him.
It’s paid well for the Blueberries, not very dangerous since the kick-off, but it’s above all a first step towards the semi-finals.
FRANCE OPENS THE SCORE! On the returned corner, Diaby found the head of Upamecano alone at six meters. It’s in the small net, and France is taking the lead! 1-0 for the Blueberries!
Ikoné! Superb sequence of Lille who gets rid of his defender before sending a missile narrowly released by Bijlow!
Stengs again! Malacia recovers in front of Kalulu, throws Boadu on the left side who crosses for Stengs. The recovery of the Dutchman is mole and Maouassa ahead of Meslier to get the ball out on his line.
Stengs strike! The Dutchman pierces in the axis, is not attacked, and places a cross strike which passes a few centimeters from the post of Meslier. His shot was deflected slightly, but the corner gave nothing.
Captain of the Bleuets tonight, Ibrahima Konaté this week celebrated the officialization of his transfer from RB Leipzig to Liverpool for the sum of 36 million euros.
The first French situation! Aouar accelerates on the left side and deposits a poorly cleared center by the Dutch hinge. Edouard recovers but does not manage to follow in a good position.
New Dutch foul, this time from Teze who charges Aouar. The Jong Oranje put a lot of intensity in the duels.
The slight Dutch domination continues. Kluivert asked for a corner in an aerial duel with Upamecano but it was he who touched the ball last.
Colin Dagba will not return to the field. He is replaced by Milanese Pierre Kalulu.
Logical yellow card for Dani De Wit who stamps Boubakary Soumaré while the Frenchman had passed in the axis and led the cons.
The tile for the Blueberries … Colin Dagba sits on the lawn. He apparently suffers from the foot that Malacia touched on his tackle. He leaves the field to seek treatment.
First acceleration of the French on the right side. Diaby shifts Dagba but Malacia intervenes severely in front of Dagba. The right side of PSG takes a few seconds to get up.
First situation in the French area after a left side shift on Malacia who finds Stengs in the axis but the defense closes on him before he can continue.
The two teams measure each other at the start of the match. The Dutch manage to hold the ball a little better in these first minutes.
The match begins on a calm pace. The French try to set the game down and spin the ball in their half of the field.
The anthems ring out on the lawn of the Bozsik Arena, where the match is being held, in Budapest.
For the Netherlands, coach Erwin Van de Looi also opted for a 4-3-3 with the trio Stengs – Boadu – Kluivert in attack.
The composition of Jong Oranje: Bijlow – Teze, Schuurs, Botman, Malacia – Harroui, De Wit, Kadioglu – Stengs – Boadu, Kluivert
For this decisive match, Sylvain Ripoll is deprived of several players, whether taken by the A (Jules Koundé); injured (Jeff Reine-Adélaïde) or retained by their clubs for the dams such as Nantes Alban Lafont and Randall Kolo Muani. The coach opted for a 4-3-3 today where we find in particular an Upamécano-Konaté hinge as well as a trio Tchouaméni – Soumaré – Aouar in the middle. No Camavinga therefore, he will start on the bench.
The blueberries composition: Meslier – Dagba, Upamécano, Konaté, Maouassa – Tchouaméni, Soumaré, Aouar – Ikoné, Edouard, Diaby
We will have to bring out the warming blue for the Bleuets tonight. After a delicate qualifying phase two months ago ended in second position in Group C, Sylvain Ripoll’s men no longer have the right to make mistakes this evening against the Netherlands, first in Group A ahead of the Germany.
