Corinne Deacon: "The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others"


The coach of the France team returned to the injuries of certain important players who will not allow her to field her best team against Vietnam this Friday (9:10 p.m.), in preparation for the Euro.

You had expressed the wish at the start of the preparation to be able to field, against Vietnam, a team close to that planned at the start of the Euro.

What about now, with regard to the injuries of Renard, Karchaoui and Geyoro?

Corinne Deacon:

I chose a group of 23 players.

When we announced the list, we knew we would need everyone.

The misfortune of some is the happiness of others.

Some will have a little more playing time. It's true that I said that the Vietnam match would normally be closer to the eleven which should start against Italy (July 10 at the start of the first round, editor's note).

By speaking too quickly, we are forced to go back on what we say.

Same for the day before matches: if I told you who I thought of to play tomorrow... There's always a little black cat running around.

By speaking too quickly, suddenly we cannot do what we say.

So next time I will talk less (laughs).

To discover

  • The complete calendar of the Blues

France and Europe are facing a new wave of Covid-19.

Do you dread it?

Are there any special instructions for female players?

From Tuesday (date of their arrival at the base camp in England, editor's note) we will be under the aegis of UEFA, so we will stick to what UEFA asks of us, that is to say not much today.

We are in the nails.

As far as we are concerned, since the start of the preparation, we continue to keep the barrier gestures, the tables (to eat) in reduced numbers.

As far as possible, as far as I am concerned, I continue to wear the mask on public transport.

There is hydroalcoholic gel everywhere in the Château (de Clairefontaine), so for us it does not change much.

It is important despite everything to reach out to our audience, but also to continue to be careful.

The only constraint we will have and which will be imposed on us by UEFA,

it will be to wear an FFP2 mask when arriving at the stadium and in the locker room.

But once we're between us, we'll have to take it off to play anyway.

Marie-Antoinette Katoto is out of contract with PSG on Thursday.

Is she disturbed by the situation?

How do you feel about her before her first major international competition?

She is on her feet, she has done a good preparation, yet difficult with her size.

She will digest it.

I feel her very well in the group.

Regarding his future, you (the media, editor's note) are a little better placed than me, you know very well that it will be imminent.

Tomorrow we will talk more about it, finally I hope.

It is especially necessary to let it concentrate, precisely, so that it is powerful with the Euro.
