As summer has rolled around once again, it means the end of the domestic football season, but even though this year sees no men’s senior World Cup or European Championships, it doesn’t mean there isn’t any football to watch. With the U20 World Cup at the final stage in New Zealand, the Women’s World Cup in Canada, the U21 Euros in Czech Republic and the Copa America in Chile. So there is no shortage of football action, so wherever you are, don’t miss a game, follow all the international football with Le VPN.
In New Zealand, the Under 20 tournament has reached the final with Brazil and Serbia meeting in the final in Auckland. Tournament favourites Germany were knocked out at the quarter final stage on penalties, with two African nations, Senegal and Mali, surprising everyone by making it to the final four. To look out for in the final will be Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira, who has already scored and assisted in his previous four games in the competition. The final will take place on the 20th June in Auckland’s North Harbour stadium.
The women’s World Cup has been underway for a while now, with the group stages wrapped up and on to the round of 16. The usual suspects have advanced through to the knock out stages, including USA, Germany and Japan. Joining them are a few countries who have entered the tournament for the first time; Netherlands, Switzerland and Cameroon.
Over in South America, the much-anticipated Copa America has begun, with tournament favourites Argentina and Brazil both being subjected to upsets. Brazil’s star man Neymar Jr looks set to face time on the sidelines as he was red carded during ugly scenes at the final whistle after Brazil’s 1-0 loss to rivals Colombia. Club teammates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez locked horns as Argentina narrowly beat defending champions Uruguay as Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero scored the only goal.
Over in Europe, the Under 21s tournament got underway with England falling to their first defeat of the campaign with a 1-0 loss to Portugal as Sweden got off to the perfect start as they defeated 6-time champions Italy 2-1. There are plenty of stars to watch out for in the Czech Republic, including Portugal’s William Carvalho, who has already proved himself at last summer’s World Cup with the senior squad.
