France into first-ever U-20 World Cup final

France are into the Under-20 World Cup final for the first time in their history after beating Ghana 2-1 in Wednesday’s semi-final in Bursa.

Florian Thauvin’s two goals put the French on a collision course with the winner of the other semi-final between Uruguay and Iraq with the final being staged in Istanbul on Saturday.

Striker Thauvin, who plays his club football on loan with Bastia from Lille, opened the scoring late in the first half.

Ebenezer Assifuah pulled Ghana level two minutes after the restart, with Thauvin bagging the winner a quarter of an hour from the end.
