Will the French team go all the way? In any case, she had to work hard to eliminate Mali (2-1) in the semi-final of the Under-17 World Cup on Tuesday in Surakarta (Indonesia). The Malians opened the scoring just before half-time, through their captain Ibrahim Diarra, on the lookout after a poor dismissal from goalkeeper Paul Argney (45th 4).
The Bleuets quickly equalized after the break. Ismail Bouneb took charge of a free kick on the left side. His cross found the head of Yvann Titi, Troyes player (56th).
A decisive passer, Bouneb turned into a scorer, again from a free kick, this time at the edge of the area. With a right-footed shot, the Valenciennes midfielder gave victory to France (69th). The players of coach Jean-Luc Vannuchi will face Germany in the final this Saturday (1:00 p.m.) mainland France time, again at the Manahan stadium in Surakarta.
