The eleventh world has begun Top 10: The most profitable conversions in history

The World Cup is already tomorrow

Like men’s soccer in 2021-2022, women’s teams will see busy months ahead. In addition to this summer’s Euros, the World Cup is also looming. From July 20 to August 20, 2023, more precisely. Or in about a year. The proximity of the two international competitions, which is explained by the modification of the calendar. Initially, the continental meeting was actually scheduled to take place during the summer of 2021. But Covid adheres, the European Championship has been postponed by UEFA, so it will precede the World Cup in New Zealand just a few months ago and Australia, where the France team is already qualified.

Team France – blue skies on the horizon?

Two out of three. That, at the moment, is the number of goals the French women’s national team has scored during this busy year 2022. After winning the Tournoi de France for the second time last February and then verifying their qualification for next year’s World Cup (see elsewhere), Corinne’s players have become Deacon now has the euro. A competition the Habs have never won in their history. No title came, even, to complement the French Football Federation’s (FFF) bid. Apart from these two French championships mentioned above, of course (2020, 2022).

Quarter-finals, best performance

At best, the French national team reached the quarter-finals of the continental competition. Three times: in 2009, 2013 and then 2017. Far, far from what the host country of the 2019 World Cup can really claim. Also far from the goal set by the coach and her players for the English version. Last November, the former Clermont coach was pleased with the shared and emphatic ambition of “reaching the final” and “winning that first title. To hope to get there, Corinne Deacon can count on a group she’s been building for months or even years.” Unveiled on May 30, the menu includes a clever mix of taulières (Renard, Torrent, Peyraud-Magnin, …) and youth (Katuto, Baltimore, …), to which it will be necessary at any cost to add a cruelly absent osmosis. During the World Cup in France in 2019. ‘No surprises’ prepared by Corinne Deacon, but ‘choices’ were made to form the ‘most competitive team’ possible. We go finally to win this international title that French women’s football lacks. Blue sky in horizon?
