The France national under-20 football team represents France in international football at this age level and is controlled by the Fédération Française de Football, the governing body for football in France.

The under-20 squad is often cited as a feeder squad to the under-21 squad as they rarely play and players prefer to play on the under-21 squad. The under-20 squad only see time during the annual Tournoi Espoirs de Toulon, usually when the under-21 team doesn't send a team, which is held every May when football league seasons have ended and, more recently, the FIFA U-20 World Cup, though qualification is required and earned by the under-19 team. The under-20 team also participates in the quad-annual Mediterranean Games and Jeux de la Francophonie football tournaments.

The current coach of the squad is François Blaquart.
