France national under-20 football team

 

France national under-20 football team


The France national under-20 football team represents France in association football at this age level and is controlled by the French Football Federation. Since there is no under-20 UEFA tournament, the team competes for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. The under-20 team also participates in the Toulon Tournament, usually replacing the under-21 team, and in the football tournaments of the Mediterranean Games and the Jeux de la Francophonie.

France are the reigning world champions, having won the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. The team reached the semifinals for the first time in their history in 2011, and they have also made it to the quarterfinals in two occasions, in 1997 and 2001. The current head coach is Pierre Mankowski and the captain of the team is Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba.
