FRA-U19 vs ISR-U19: Team News
Landry Chauvin’s France team on Tuesday won’t be straightforward to forecast because he has previously rotated through all of his players and is a proponent of adaptable formations. Landry Chauvin even considered switching to three defenders against Italy before deciding against it.
Ange-Yoan Bonny of Parma and versatile attacker Alan Virginius, who combined for five goals in 31 games for Ligue 2 club Sochaux last season, both have the potential to start in a front three that also includes leading scorer Loum Tchaouna.
With Tottenham’s Thimothee Lo-Tutala ready to take over in goal, Ousmane Camara will serve as the team’s captain from the centre of defence.
Israel’s team, on the other hand, is more experienced and is typically arranged in a 4-2-3-1 configuration under head coach Ofir Haim.
Dor Turgeman, who led all scorers in qualification, starts up front for his team. Oscar Gloukh, a Maccabi Tel Aviv forward who has two goals in the tournament so far, provides a threat from behind.
Since there isn’t much depth in the team, the majority of the starting lineup will be decided by a duel between Tomer Tzarfati and Lior Gliklich, who both started the season’s first game but were later benched.
