The winner will be crowned champion of the Women's Nations League, which runs from September 14 to September 22.

The French women's team qualified for the final of the League of Nations, at the expense of Germany (2-1).


Diani omnipresent

In this prestigious match, the Blues' play often leaned to the right.

A corridor where Kadidiatou Diani particularly stood out.

In terms of legs, the Olympique Lyonnais player quickly got the better of her opponents.

His understanding with Le Sommer and De Almeida was clearly one of the strong points of the France team this Friday.

Impeccable in her defensive withdrawal, she scored her twenty-seventh goal for the selection before the break, with a superb strike from the edge of the area.

A perfect evening, with of course the victory (2-1) and qualification for the final as a bonus.

Mbock, a Fox look

Deprived of its captain Wendy Renard, currently injured, the French team was able to rely on the big game of Griedge Mbock in the central hinge.

The Lyonnaise, associated with Lakrar, was notably imperial in the first period, winning most of her duels with Popp.

She also held her own during the last half hour, while Germany pushed to catch up.

The French defense has found a substitute boss, while awaiting the return of Renard.

Schüller showed nothing

An evening to forget for Lea Schüller.

Associated with Popp on the front of the German attack, the 26-year-old player showed nothing good on the pitch at Groupama Stadium.

Never dangerous, she let herself be caught by Mbock on her only ball worth negotiating.

Replaced during the break, after involuntarily passing the ball to Diani on the opening score.

Katoto very discreet

It’s one of the rare disappointments of the evening for Les Bleues.

Aligned a notch in front of the Bacha-Le Sommer-Diani trio, Marie-Antoinette Katoto did not exist enough at the forefront.

The Paris Saint-Germain player, well surrounded by the opposing central hinge, often appeared isolated and disconnected from her teammates.

His only opportunity: a pivotal shot blocked for a corner.

Too little for a player of this level...
