Traveling to Le Havre, the young Parisians lost 1-0 in the round of 16 of the Gambardella Cup and were therefore eliminated. The goal scored in the 13th minute could not be recovered.
Despite a good 2004 generation, it is still not this year that PSG will win the Gambardella Cup, a competition that has eluded them for more than 30 years now. Traveling to Le Havre on the occasion of the round of 16, the Parisians of Zoumana Camara lost on the smallest of margins. Ngoura’s goal scored in the 13th minute after a fine individual feat could never be overcome by the young Parisians.
The Parisian U18s had many opportunities to get back into the match, in particular via several set pieces: corners taken which passed by, a free kick from Gharbi just above the skylight, but nothing there did and Courel did the right thing in the opposing goal. The youngsters of PSG also struggled to hold their nerves over time, getting angry at the end of the match when they felt the qualification slipping away from them. The HAC held on, even missing the break point several times and qualified for the rest.
The composition of PSG against Le Havre: Mouquet – Lamy, Fernandez, El Hannach, Muntu – Zaire-Emery, Kari – Gharbi, Ganouni, Lemina – Odobert
