Seasonal Water Yield - Soil Groups for EU ?

Good morning everyone,

I am willing to use InVEST SWY model to assess water retention in a French region; for this purpose, I need a "Soil Groups" raster. 
The InVEST website proposes to use SCS classification (classes A to D). I have been actively looking for maps of hydrogeological (HG) soil types using this classification, but I couldn't find any relevant data for my area of interest (that is, a part of Europe).
The only data I found stem from European Soil Data Center (ESDAC), and their classes range from 1 to 4. Unfortunately, they don't seem to match SCS soil classes.

Can anyone please help me find relevant data about european HG soil classes, that would fit into InVEST models ?

Many thanks in advance !
