With a very revamped team, the France team largely dominated Cameroon (4-0) on Saturday in Beauvais, two weeks before the first match of the English Euro, July 10 against Italy. Facing the 54th nation in the FIFA rankings, Les Bleues (3rd) signed a 13th consecutive victory. Corinne Deacon took advantage of this first preparation meeting to refine her principles of play and launch players with few caps.
“Not everything was successful but there were a lot of tries and it’s interesting for the future, it gives them confidence,” commented the coach. While Marie-Antoinette Katoto started as usual in attack, captain Wendie Renard started on the bench, like goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin, which allowed goalkeeper Mylène Chavas to honor her first selection on Saturday at 24 years.
Vietnam before Italy at the Euro
The Bordelaise only touched her first ball in the 21st minute, with her foot and on an action without any danger, which situates the level of adversity encountered. The goals were scored by Melvine Malard (32nd), Griedge Mbock (38th) and Ouleymata Sarr (58th, 62nd), who entered the game at the break in place of Katoto. The match ended with Hawa Cissoko being sent off in added time for a poorly controlled tackle.
Les Bleues will play against Vietnam (32nd in the FIFA rankings), Friday in Orleans, before switching to the Euro.
