Sélection : les Espoirs français douchés par l'Autriche (3-1)
Houssem Aouar, Moussa Dembélé and Lucas Tousart all started in Tuesday's 3-1 loss.

The France Espoirs fell 3-1 to Austria Tuesday night in their final warm-up ahead of the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship that gets underway this weekend in Italy. The OL trio of Houssem Aouar, Moussa Dembélé and Lucas Tousart started for Les Bleuets, who looked shaky in the back when conceding the game's opening goal (21 ', 1-0). Aouar assisted Reine-Adelaide (57', 1-1) in France's equalizer before Austria re-took the lead seconds later while putting the game to bed in the final minutes (58', 2-1 and 85', 3-1).
