Internationals: Houssem Aouar called up for Les Espoirs
While waiting for the senior team announcement, which will be communicated by Dider Deschamps this Thursday, only one Lyon player has been summoned to take part in the group stage of the European U-21 Championships: our midfielder Houssem Aouar. At 22, the OL number 8 has 15 caps for Les Espoirs and celebrated his first cap with the senior side in October 2020. He was also a part of the squad during the 2019 U-21 Euros, during which the team reached the semifinals. As a reminder, the 2021 U-21 Euros will have a revised format; the group stage will take place from March 24 to 31 in Hungary and Slovenia, while the knockout rounds will be held from May 31 to June 6. France will face Denmark, Russia and Iceland in its group.
