We do not know if the French women’s team has learned a lot from its two preparation matches for the English Euro. But she improved her statistics, crushing Vietnam Friday in Orleans (7-0), six days after having outclassed Cameroon (4-0), respectively 54th and 32nd nations in the FIFA rankings.
Six different players scored: Delphine Cascarino (5th), Sandie Toletti (16th), Marie-Antoinette Katoto (23rd), Clara Matéo (33rd), Aïssatou Tounkara (68th) and Kadidiatou Diani, credited with a double (11th, 45th +1). It was already 6-0 at halftime.
Players spared, but no serious injury
Coach Corinne Deacon fielded a good part of her supposed typical team, even if the central back and captain Wendie Renard, the left side Sakina Karchaoui and the medium Grace Geyoro, were all preserved after physical glitches. “The individual performances and the collective performance were satisfactory,” said the boss of the Blue. We finish without injuries and we will recover Sakina, Grace and Wendie next week. We will have the full group to start our sessions on English soil. »
The French will face Italy on July 10 in Rotherham, England, at the opening of their group stage. They will then meet Belgium and Iceland on July 14 and 18 in the same city.
