France, SKorea win Under-20 WCup openers

France opened the Under-20 World Cup finals with a bang on Friday, scoring two second-half goals within four minutes to win 3-1 against Ghana.

After a lacklustre first half, France dominated the Group A encounter for much of the second period.

The French hit the post in the 51st minute before Sevilla midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia put the team ahead with a header in the 65th.

Three minutes later, Kondogbia chipped a nifty pass into the area for Auxerre striker Yaya Sanogo to shoot between the legs of goalkeeper Eric Antwi.

France forward Jean Christophe Bahebeck scored a third in 79th, before Ghana substitute Yiadom Boakye pulled one back in the 85th.

Asian champions South Korea came from a goal down to beat tournament newcomers Cuba 2-1 in the Group B opener.

The Young Socceroos are in Group C facing a huge test against Colombia in Trabzon on Saturday (early Sunday AEST) and it doesn't get much easier with matches against El Salvador and hosts Turkey to follow.
