Canada shuts down France, Italy with a narrow victory over Bosnia

France drew 0:0 with Canada in their final friendly before the start of the European Championships in Germany.

At the stadium in Bordeaux, Le Blues , who are considered one of the favorites for the title of the upcoming championship of the Old Continent, did not manage to overcome the fighting team of Canada. The Maple Leafs finished the game without a shot, but they also did not allow a goal against a France team full of class players. Kylian Mbappe, who will play in Real Madrid from the summer, appeared from the bench in the 74th minute, but was also unable to help the squad warm up for Euro 2024 with a win. The match was veteran Olivier Giroud's last in front of his own crowd after the team's all-time leading scorer announced his retirement from the international scene after the European Championship.

The French are in Group D alongside Poland, the Netherlands and Austria, opening their campaign against the Austrians on June 17.

The Canadians, for their part, had a dress rehearsal for the Copa America, where they are in a group with world champions and current trophy holders Argentina, Peru and Chile.

In another friendly, Italy dealt with Bosnia and Herzegovina after the minimum 1:0. Davide Frattesi was accurate for the Azzurri, who will defend its European title in Germany. Luciano Spalletti's men are in Group B alongside Spain, Croatia and Albania, kicking off against the Albanians on June 15.

Bosnia, for its part, will turn its attention to the Nations Legue, where it is in a tough group with the Netherlands, Hungary and Germany.
