The next FIFA U-20 World Cup matches in Group F will see France take on The Gambia and Honduras take on South Korea on Thursday. Gambia and South Korea will be looking to win and qualify for the round of 16 of the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

However, France and Honduras will have their ambitions. The French will be especially eager to get their campaign back on track when they take on The Gambia. They sit third in the group after losing their opening match of the FIFA U-20 World Cup against South Korea.

Preview of the game France Sub-20 vs Gambia Sub-20


France must avoid defeat to have a chance in this group. Les Bleuets, who won this competition with Paul Pogba on their team in the 2013 edition, will hope to bounce back and score their first three points against The Gambia on Thursday. The Gambia will give them a tough task though, as their underdog tag could motivate them to try to win and join their African brethren Nigeria in the next round.

France are winless in their last three games, with one draw and two losses. They are not in good shape before this very important game against Gambia. They must be at their best to win against the energetic Gambians.


The Gambian team top the group with three points thanks to their 2-1 win over Honduras. Adama Bojang scored on either side of the half to inspire the Africans to victory.

The African under-20 finalists have won six of their last eight games before their clash with France. They will be motivated by the fact that an African team, Nigeria, has already reached the next round. They will feel that they, too, can defeat a European opponent and advance to the round of 16.

1st Pick: Gambia to score

We would like to point out that Gambia scored twice in their last match. In fact, they have scored in six of their previous seven games. They are great in front of goal. Consequently, we support them to score at least one goal against France.

2nd Prediction: Handicap (0:2) Gambia

On paper France are the heavy favourites, but the Gambians are not to be taken for granted. They are ready to score and even pull off a big win. The French side have not been convincing lately, which could work against them in their quest for victory. We believe that Gambia will not lose by more than two goals if France beat them. As a result, a two-goal deficit to Gambia should come home to this fight.

Head to head records

The two nations have not met in this competition before.
