Euro U21 qualifiers: Switzerland, beaten by France, will finish 2nd –

In great difficulty during the majority of the match, Lustrinelli’s men lost 3-1 against France in the last qualifying match for Euro 2021. Despite a goal from Imeri in the 88th, France regained the lead of the group at the expense of the Rougets.

Switzerland paid a heavy price for a catastrophic first half hour against the Habs who were keen to erase the 3-1 defeat conceded last year to Neuchâtel. France very quickly forced the decision on a double from Odsonne Edouard. The Cetlic Glasgow striker was able to exploit two fatal mistakes of Cédric Zesinger to deceive Anthony Racioppi.

The reduction in the score of Kastriot Imeri, whose introduction at the break was salutary, in the 88th minute after an excellent work by Bastien Toma was not enough for Switzerland to “save” the first place of the group. She was, in fact, crucified in extra time on a break concluded by the Nantes player Randal Kolo Muani.

After such a defeat, Switzerland can only approach the final phase of this Euro next March in Slovenia and Hungary with great humility.
