Zouma, Kondogbia, and Digne...Oh My! Your France/USA U20 Open Thread

Johannes Simon

An open thread to discuss anything you want for June 24, 2013

We're still several weeks away from seeing Chelsea in action again and the Confederations Cup is off before the Semis start, but that doesn't mean we don't have some football to watch today. The U20 World Cup has some action about to get underway, and there are a handful of players that have been linked to Chelsea that will be featuring for their countries today.

Lucas Digne and Geoffrey Kondogbia have both seen regular links to the Blues, and both will be starting for the French when they face the United States in about 30 minutes. Additional target Kurt Zouma will start the contest on the bench, but could well factor into this one as most would expect the French squad to end up in a position to be killing this game off later on.

The other early game features Cuba taking on Nigeria, with Spain/Ghana and Portugal/South Korea both set to start later on. Enjoy the games, and here's hoping the young Blues targets impress.
