France struggle past Croatia to reach Under-19 final

27 July 2010 21:32

(GSM) - France struggled but recovered just in time to beat Croatia 2-1 and advance to the final of the UEFA Under-19 Championship.

Hosts France were favored to beat Croatia at Caen's Michel d'Ornano stadium, but Croatia instead took the lead through Arijan Ademi in the fourth minute.

Gael Kakuta equalised eight minutes before the break however and Cedric Bakambu netted the winner with just seven minutes left to play.

In the final, France face Spain who beat England 3-1 in the other semi final earlier on Tuesday.

The French have won the European Under-19 Championship six times, most recently in 2005. Spain won the trophy on seven occasions, and did so last in 2007. In 1996, these two sides also met in the final with France winning 1-0.
