Teenage Kicks: Huge Future Ahead for Bastia’s Francois Kamano

Teenage Kicks: Huge Future Ahead for Bastia’s Francois Kamano

François Kamano’s rise in stock this season has been meteoric. At the tender age of 18, the SC Bastia forward has been at the forefront of the club’s revival under new coach Ghislain Printant.

Super Sala Sends SM Caen Towards Safety #FFWTOTW

Lyon remain two points clear at the top of the table after a 1-0 win at home to Nantes. Despite the return of Alexandre Lacazette, it was a far from straightforward win for Hubert Fournier’s men, who struggled to break down a resolute Canari defence, and were lucky that Nantes were not a little more clinical on the break, certainly in the first half. But a very scrappy goal was enough for les Gônes to…

Saint-Etienne v Marseille: Hope Springs Eternal For Les Stephanois

by Chris McMullan Winters are cold in central France. The region known in the middle ages as the Forez lies miles from the sea and is stuck between the Alps and the Massif Central. There is little humidity, and, in the traditional mining town of Saint-Etienne, the dry air brings with it a bitter cold in the winter months.

Europa Euround-up – Guingamp 2 – 1 Dynamo Kiev

French representation in the Europa League now rests with Guingamp, and they faced tricky opposition on Thursday night in the form of Ukrainian league leaders Dynamo Kiev, who topped their group over Aalborg, Steaua Bucharest and Rio Ave. It was a chaotic game which saw an early injury, three goals, two red cards, a lot of needle, and possibly record-breaking crossing stats. Things were shaping up not to be Kiev’s night when Jeremain Lens took a…

Liverpool’s Divock Origi and the 10 Most Intriguing Ligue 1 Players

There is little doubt that…
