Team Great Britain was unarmed against Team France in the IFAF European Championships at Vantaa. The French, who played their first game in the tournament, had the game in their hands from the beginning. The French defense didn’t give a single touchdown for The Lions. Final score 9–42 (6–28).

Team France varied efficiently their offensive game against Team Great Britain. French offensive line was strong and gave time for the quarter back. In the first half QB Paul Durand passed all four touchdowns and a total of 261 yards. As a small minus Team France fumbled three times that caused six points (two field goals) for Team Great Britain.

Team France used efficiently all their wide receivers. Andrew James and Nelson Tsimi both scored twice. Jefferson Alexander kicked all (6) extra points.

The second half started with strong offensive play by The Lions. They reached the six-yard line of Team France but were forced to satisfy with a field goal.

Team France offered a quick response. Stephen Yepmo who rushed 115 yards in the game scored the fifth touchdown for Team France. After the goal The French rotated their defense.

Jason Aguemon rushed the sixth touchdown for Team France to nail it down.

– We worked a lot during the camp before the competition and we had a really nice play book to execute, told the French MVP Durand.

He also gave compliments to the offensive line:

– I got a lot of time behind the line. They are physical and smart.

 

Team France will play for the final against Team Finland on Thursday evening at 8 pm. Team Great Britain will meet Team Denmark on a Saturday morning at 11 am.

On Tuesday evening The Brits face Team France. The game starts at 8PM at Myyrmaki, Vantaa. Team Great Britain has to win if they want to keep fighting for the medals. For Team France Tuesday’s game will be their first. After the clash against the Brits they face  Finland on Thursday evening match.

GB Lions were in great trouble against Finland on Sunday. Finnish running game was dominant at the first half and the Brits couldn’t find the ways to stop it flowing. Team Finland managed to do four touchdowns on the first half and it was enough to win.

– Team Finland played an excellent match on Sunday. Finns dominated the first half and we had troubles to catch with the speed of their running game. Their defence played very well and it was a tough one to break, told GB Lions head coach Michael Callan in the press conference after the game.

Team Great Britain have less then 48 hours before the ball is in the air again. It means that the Brits face long days ahead.

– I would love to have 48 hours but I guess it less then that. We start working right ahead. The number one thing is that we have to recover tomorrow (on Monday) and make sure that our guys get healthy. On Monday we are going to watch films and scout the France with the coaching staff, told Callan about the Brits plans before the Tuesday’s game.

Team Great Britain’s offence struggled in the first half but after a break it started to find a better rhythm. However they did managed to get any points from the compact Finnish defence. GB Lions only goal came after a turnover in the first half. DB Josh Amis intercepted pass, caught the ball on his hands and ran almost 90 yards on the other side of the court.

– I saw the ball coming on my side. I just crabed the ball off him (Finnish striker), put my feet working and never looked back, reviewed Amis.

Team France only goal is gold

Since taking over as head coach of Team France in 2014, Patrick Esume has guided the French national team through two tournaments and and a number of games. Most recently, the French national team defeated Team Germany in the World Games in Poland in 2017. The win was historic as it marked the first time France had ever beaten the Germans in international competition.

France won the bronze in the 2014 European Championships, defeating Team Finland in the medal round, 35–21. In 2010, the French reached the gold medal game but were defeated by Team Germany 26–10. Team France has finished fourth three times since the tournament started in 1983.

Team France really likes to run the ball. Team is full of speedy and tricky running backs. Jasons Bofunda and Aguemon with Jerome Valbon, Stephen Yepmo and Aymeric Nicault will make sure that GB Lions is having touch night.

– We are missing around seven top players from the German Football League teams. We are young and inexperienced. But the mood is good. Austria is the favorite so we will go out and see what we can do, told Team France head coach Esume before the tournament.
