Blues is done. Against Slovenia this Tuesday evening at Le Mans, French women validated their qualification for the 2023 World Cup with their 1-0 win. The only – and so precious – goal of the meeting was scored by Delphine Cascarino, who was perfectly served by Clara Matteo at the far post, just after the locker room (48th).

Only a defeat against the 47th nation in the FIFA rankings could delay French women’s qualification for the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, where they already had a foot and a half before the meeting. With this narrow win, the contract is complete.

With eight wins from eight matches, the French have so far achieved a perfect run in these qualifications. Friday’s 2-1 win over Wales gave them a comfortable lead over the Slovenians, their Group I runners-up.

Future world champions, the French team would be looking to do better in a year and a half, after their quarter-final exit against the Americans in the 2019 World Cup (2-1). In 2015, Les Blues also moved closer to the semi-finals, losing on penalties against Germany. The best result remains fourth place at the 2011 World Cup.
