Two goals from Florian Thauvin give France a 2-1 win over Ghana in the semi-finals of the Under-20 World Cup.

France have reached the final of the Under-20 World Cup thanks to a 2-1 win over Ghana in Bursa.

Pierre Mankowksi's side will now play either Iraq or Uruguay in Saturday's final.

Les Bleus took the lead on 43 minutes when Florian Thauvin exchanged passes with Jean-Christophe Bahebeck before rounding the goalkeeper to slot in.

Ghana got themselves level moments into the second half as Ebenezer Assifuah lashed the ball home with a powerful strike from the edge of the box.

However, the French sealed the victory 15 minutes from time through Thauvin's low drive.

A successful night for France ended on a sour note as Samuel Umtiti was sent off after picking up a yellow card for taking a swing at Assifuah.
