The France Espoirs team ended its 2023 year badly with a second consecutive defeat. Thierry Henry's men were beaten (0-3) by South Korea at the Océane stadium in Le Havre on Monday.
The visitors opened the scoring with a superb free kick by Sang-bin Jeong (70th). Then, taking advantage of two disagreements in the French defense and a game of billiards, they increased the score (79th, 90th 4).
“We can’t afford to concede goals like that. The second and third are quite comical,” Henry regretted. “Once again we gave away goals, even if the free kick was still good, the other two goals were avoidable.”
A match to forget for goalkeeper Guillaume Restes, who nevertheless had the captain's armband.
