FIFA U-17 World Cup: France Ease to Victory Over Chilled Chile

France's firepower proved too much for Chile at the Estadio da Serrinha in Goiania on Sunday evening as Les Tricolores ran out 2-0 winners in their FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™ debut.

A pair of quick-fire strikes, firstly via a penalty kick in the 63rd minute and again on a heady attacking move in the 64th minute, were the difference.
With the success France had connecting one-touch passes and searing into the penalty box from wide areas, their eventual breakthrough felt inevitable. Captain Lucien Agoume provided it by converting a penalty after Brandon Soppy was brought down in the box. Then midfielder Adil Aouchiche picked out Isaac Lihadji's run for France's second. Aouchiche was the danger man for Les Bleuets all night, creating bundles of chances for himself and his team-mates.
