In the M-3 of Euro 2022, which will be held in England this summer (6–31 July), Corinne Deacon called the players to play the next two qualifying matches for the 2023 World Cup (20 August 20). unveiled its list of Australia and New Zealand).

There have been clear indications by the coach about the players she is counting on traveling to the United Kingdom in July, as it is the last tricolor gathering before the Euros.

Of the 23 players selected to play in the next two qualifying matches (Wales–France on 8 April in Lanelli then France–Slovenia on 12 April at Le Mans), five are Leonis: Wendy Renard, Grijs Mbock, Selma Bacha, Delphine Cascarino. , Melvin Mallard.

The train definitely passed for Henri and Le Sommer

OL’s young left-back Selma Kid has been picked for the third time in a row since last November (4 games played, 2 starts, 1 goal). And in the attack, Deacon once again relied on Melvin Mallard (11 games played with Team A, 4 titles, 3 goals).

No Perle Moroni though. On the left-back’s absence, Deacon explained it due to recent physical disturbances: “She just came back from injury, hasn’t played for a while, will she start tonight? Not sure,” she said. Said referring to the second leg of the OL-Juve Champions League quarter-finals, which will take place this Thursday evening in Dacine (9 pm).

So the train has certainly passed for top French scorer Eugenie Le Sommer, who has not been called up for her 6th consecutive tricolor rally, currently in recovery after a small tear in the calf. And as for Amandine Henry, he hasn’t been retained for a year and a half now, and he’s out with the coach in November 2020.

Regarding “ELS”, Corinne Deacon quickly shrugged off the topic of a possible return: “I will repeat myself but the door is never closed for anyone. I have 23 players on the list but today Eugenie is injured. He is not on the list. »

As a reminder, Les Blues, alone at the top of their Group I team with 6 wins in 6 games, therefore have an opportunity to validate their ticket to the 2023 World Cup.
