For this trip to London, the young Aiglons took off from the Côte d'Azur on Wednesday morning. Under the British sun, they played three matches in the group phase. Having beaten Fulham (1-0), they lost to Manchester United (0-1) and then Arsenal (0-1).

This day was a great opportunity for the Côte d'Azur's youth team, who were the only French team to take part in the tournament.

They will return home this Thursday evening after visiting the English capital.
