The France National Team are riding high at the moment following their successful storming into the World Cup Final to be played this Sunday.

As France collectively rejoices, the next generation of young stars are preparing for their own attempt at gaining national adoration.

The France U19s will begin their European Championships campaign in Finland next Monday. 

Today, coach Bernard Diomède, a former World Cup winner with the national team in 1998, has announced his squad to participate in the tournament.

Hot young prospect Moussa Diaby from PSG, and Olympique Lyonnais’ Amine Gouiri and Myziane Maolida are included.

Goalkeepers: Didier Desprez (Lens). Yehvann Diouf (Troyes)

Defenders: Thomas Basila (Nantes), Nicolas Cozza (Montpellier), Mahamadou Dembélé (RB Salzburg), Boubacar Kamara (Marseille), Sikou Niakaté (Valenciennes)
Malang Sarr (Nice)

Midfielders: Mickaël Cuisance (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Rafik Guitane (Rennes), Isaac Matondo (Rennes), Aurélien Nguiamba (Nancy), Sambou Sissoko (Tours), Boubakary Soumaré (Lille)

Attackers: Yacine Adli (PSG), Nabil Alioui (Monaco), Moussa Diaby (PSG), Amine Gouiri (Lyon), Myziane Maolida (Lyon), Lenny Pintor (Brest)

Six other national teams aside from France and the host country will compete in the two week tournament: Norway, Italy, Ukraine, Portugal, Turkey and England.

The last tournament was won by England, who beat Portugal 2-1 in 2017 in Georgia.

France kick-off their campaign with a Group B match against Ukraine on 17th July at the Hietalahti Stadium, Vaasa, in an attempt to win their second title in three years.

Diomède will be hoping for a repeat performance of two years ago, when France stunned Italy to win 4-0 in the final. A certain Kylian Mbappe was the star of the tournament in 2016.

Now, Mbappe and the France national team will play their World Cup Final just two days before their Under 19s start their own competition, when they take on Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
