Women's Euro: the 23 Bleues to conquer England

Under the technical direction of Corinne Deacon, the French will play the Euro from July 6 to 31 with a certain ambition.

Aurélien Philippe-Gérard, Marius Veillerot, Fabien Casaleggio and Stanislas de Livonnière

Last update: 06/28/2022

For the first international competition disputed since 2019, the objective displayed by the Habs is to manage to make their way to the semi-finals, or why not, to the Wembley final.


Before joining their base camp in England on July 5 to face Italy (July 10), Belgium (July 14) and Iceland (July 18) in the first round, Les Bleues played and won two warm-up matches , against Cameroon, in Beauvais, then against Vietnam, in Orléans.

Before that, the French had not played together since April 12 and the victory against Slovenia (1-0), synonymous with qualification for the 2023 World Cup. But the coach has relied for several months on a group almost unchanged.

The list of 23 players she retained confirmed strong choices, such as doing without Amandine Henry and Eugénie Le Sommer.

The players know each other perfectly.

We work with a good group, with several qualities, several strings to our bow and this is an asset for the French team.

Corinne Deacon

As a reminder, Les Bleues have not lost since a defeat against the United States (2-0) in April 2021.

Babysitters

Pauline Peyraud-Magnin

Juventus FC

• 25 selections

• 30 years

The face of the France team as goalkeeper since September 2020 and the withdrawal of Sarah Bouhaddi, that's her.

The Turinese approaches her first international competition with the titular gloves at Les Bleues.

Not enough to intimidate the second French footballer to have revealed her homosexuality.

Mylene Chavas

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

• 1 selection

• 24 years

For her first cape in the A team, the Bordelaise did not have to play superheroine on June 25 against Cameroon (4-0).

Solène Durand's package offered her the role of number 2. The tallest goalkeeper (1.78m) in the team shone in important tournaments in youth selections and is used to struggling with club competition. .

Justine Lerond

FC Metz

• 0 selection

• 22 years old

Messina starts third in the hierarchy, she who has always started in French D2 this season.

If her summons is rather surprising, she has already known the France group in 2019 and has scoured the youth teams from U16 to U23, winning the Euro U19 in 2019.

Defenders

Hawaii Cissoko

West Ham United FC

• 6 selections

• 25 years

The places will be expensive in hinge and the expulsion of the defender in less than 15 minutes against Cameroon is likely to weigh.

Trained at PSG and quickly on the shelves of the selection, she dragged on the way between OM and Soyaux.

More successful at West Ham, she will be mainly responsible for uniting the locker room.

Sakina Karchaoui

PSG

• 47 selections

• 26 years

Hyperactive, with a silky ball drive, she combines non-stop and sparks on her left side.

Transferred from Lyon to Paris last summer, the side has exported its qualities in the capital and also displays them in Blue, where its status contrasts with its inexperience in major competitions.

Griedge Mbock

Olympique Lyonnais

• 66 selections

• 27 years old

Despite 20 months of absence in selection, the Lyonnaise seems essential for the group.

Returning to Les Bleues last November following a ruptured Achilles tendon, she did not have her best season but remained intimidating in duels in both surfaces, skilful in relaunching and playing long.

Selma Bacha

Olympique Lyonnais

• 5 selections

• 21 years old

Subject to fierce competition on the left, it will offer a credible alternative to Karchaoui, or higher on the lawn.

Carried forward, sharp in her races, the left-hander served 9 caviars in the Champions League and in the league, two competitions won by OL.

Eve Perisset

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

• 35 selections

• 27 years old

His story with the Euro ended with a red card against Switzerland.

Five years later, she returns, bundled up in a starter costume at right-back.

A sort of eccentric playmaker in Bordeaux, the future Chelsea player will have to bring her activity and her accuracy to the selection.

Wendie Fox

Olympique Lyonnais

• 131 selections

• 31 years

The boss is hungry.

Recently extended until 2026 at OL, the captain has an endless record in club, but almost empty in the France team.

At 31, the central defender will have the mission of guiding the tricolor rearguard and continuing to weigh in front (33 goals in selection).

Marion Torrent

Montpellier HSC

• 45 selections

• 30 years

Overtaken by Périsset, deemed more reliable defensively, the captain of Montpellier is not the type to pollute the group with moods.

Holder at the 2019 World Cup, the right side remains appreciated by Corinne Deacon and offers an additional option on the bench.

Aissatou Tounkara

Atletico de Madrid

• 32 selections

• 27 years old

In 2021, the Atlético defender started 100% of the eleven tricolor matches, taking advantage of Renard's absence to wear the armband and score her first two goals against Estonia.

Since then, the captain has returned and Tounkara does not leave as a hinge, barred by her great friend Mbock.

Midfielders

Charlotte Bilbault

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

• 44 selections

• 32 years old

Acting captain against the Cameroonians, the Girondine benefited from the non-selection of Henry and Hamraoui to impose themselves as a sentinel.

Very aggressive in recovery, the former Paris FC and Juvisy also weighs in the locker room.

Still lack of foresight in the use of the ball.

Kenza Dali

Everton F.C.

• 43 selections

• 30 years

Technical and seasoned relay player, the Everton player will be an asset for Deacon coming off the bench.

The former OL and PSG has compiled 9 goals in 43 selections and could approach the Euro with a spirit of revenge: she is coming out of a turbulent season for her club and had missed the 2019 World Cup for a domestic accident.

Grace Geyoro

PSG

• 49 selections

• 25 years

Captain of PSG, trained at the club, number 8 is also at the heart of the French project.

Deacon's favorite game facilitator suffered a knee sprain on Tuesday, June 21 in training.

She should still hold her place at the Euro, she who had spent the 2019 World Cup on the bench.

Ella Palis

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

• 7 selections

• 23 years

The young Bordelaise does not start against Bilbault, her club partner, for the most remote position in the middle at 3. Trained at Guingamp, she was slowed down by injuries in Gironde.

Nevertheless, his appearances in D1 and in selection opened the doors to his first major tournament with the A.

Sandie Toletti

Levante UD

• 28 selections

• 26 years

The Levante player took advantage of the arrival of Deacon to make a successful comeback.

Three and a half years of absence have whetted his appetite until his return in February 2021. Boosted by his departure for Spain in the summer of 2020, the ex-Montpelliera flourishes as a left torchbearer in the France team.

Forwards

Sandy Baltimore

PSG

• 14 selections

• 22 years old

The PSG winger finished best passer in D1 with 13 offerings.

Revelation of the 2020-2021 season, the left-hander is not indisputable in Blue but may have the opportunity to find her Parisian cocoon because her partners Katoto and Diani monopolize the other two places in the attacking trio.

Delphine Cascarino

Olympique Lyonnais

• 41 selections

• 25 years

Elle est la favorite pour débuter sur l'aile gauche, elle qui a dynamisé le côté droit lyonnais cette saison. Formée à l’OL, elle impressionne par sa vitesse. Cet Euro peut lui permettre de changer de dimension. A condition de s'acclimater à ce couloir gauche et de se montrer plus efficace dans le dernier geste.

Kadidiatou Diani

PSG

• 70 sélections

• 27 ans

Meilleure joueuse de D1 lors de l’exercice 2020-2021, celui du titre parisien, la native d’Ivry-sur-Seine a encore scoré 13 fois cette saison. Indéboulonnable sur l’aile droite des Bleues, son entente développée en club avec Katoto sera l’un des baromètres de la force de frappe tricolore en Angleterre.

Melvine Malard

Olympique Lyonnais

• 12 sélections

• 22 ans

Capable d’évoluer sur toute la largeur de l’attaque, la Réunionnaise a une carte à jouer en tant que supersub. Découverte puis propulsée par Sonia Bompastor, l’entraîneure de l’OL, en club, elle a déjà été soulier d’or de l’Euro U19 remporté par la France en 2019.

Clara Mateo

Paris FC

• 11 sélections

• 24 ans

Attaquante du Paris FC, elle est alignée au milieu en Bleu. La Nantaise de naissance pousse la polyvalence au point d’avoir obtenu ses diplômes d’ingénieur en matériaux à l’école polytech de Paris-Saclay en parallèle de sa carrière. Auteure de 11 buts en D1, elle apporte technique et liant à l’entrejeu français.

Marie-Antoinette Katoto

PSG

• 29 sélections

• 23 ans

Voted best player in the French championship, the striker has also become the most prolific scorer in the history of PSG this season.

Not selected for the 2019 World Cup, she will participate in her first international competition with the A team when she already has 24 goals in around thirty capes.

Ouleymata Sarr

Paris F.C.

• 16 selections

• 26 years

After a year and a half away from Les Bleues and a complicated season in Bordeaux, she relaunched at Paris FC and signed her return to the selection in February.

Carried by her double against Cameroon but barred by one of the best players in the world at the forefront of the attack, she could speak for her speed and her understanding with Mateo coming off the bench.
