The French women’s team won 1-0 this Thursday in Strasbourg against Germany in a friendly match, after a controlled game. Kenza Dali scored the only goal of the match on a magnificent lob (30th).
The France team will be able to go on vacation with peace of mind. Less than a week before the Blues entered the Euro against Germany, Corinne Deacon’s players also challenged Manschaft in the quieter setting of an end-of-season friendly match. This did not prevent them from achieving a good performance and signing a convincing victory (1-0).
This meeting marked above all the return of the public to see the Blue, since 5,000 supporters were able to take place in the spans of the Meinau to encourage the France team on the occasion of this only meeting of the summer for France. Deprived of Le Sommer, injured, as well as Henry and Hamaroui, not selected by Corinne Deacon, the Blue showed the best intentions and logically won this last meeting of the season.
Despite a clear domination, it is on the smallest of scores, thanks to a jewel from Kenza Dali in the first period, that the Blue won. The West Ham player came to conclude a fast attack in the most beautiful way, with a subtle lob of 25 meters (30th). Happy with the outcome, the striker recalled at the final whistle the status of Germany, namely that of the second world nation.
For Deacon, “a serious match in difficult conditions”
“We could have taken one at the end of the match where we exposed ourselves against, says Deacon at the microphone of W9, before emphasizing the positive. In the difficulty we were able to hold, it’s a good performance. In the offensive animation, we have to take shelter more quickly. It was a serious match in difficult conditions, at the end of the season, with tired bodies. I am proud of them, they made the work even if it is necessary to work on the finish. Beating Germany is not trivial. “
