Semi-fig half-reason draw for France, which will host the 2019 Women's Football World Cup next summer. The Blue have avoided the ogres but they will still have to leave a particularly homogeneous group.
The eternal chance of Didier Deschamps, one of the seven drawers for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, will have only partially preserved France from a bad draw on Saturday (December 8th) in Boulogne -Billancourt.
Les Bleues, who dream of a first international podium when they will for the first time host a World Cup, from June 7 to July 7, 2019, have avoided some scarecrows (Japan and the Netherlands, in particular), but they will face three opponents deemed difficult to maneuver: Norway, South Korea and Nigeria.
Mission not necessarily obvious but still far from impossible for the players of Corinne Deacon, since Norway, 13th world nation, has nothing of the tenor that was sacred in 1995. The Scandinavian selection, which will be more most probably amputated from his star Ada Hegerberg, recently elected Ballon d'Or female but who has complex relations with his coach and his federation.
Data that should inevitably inspire the Blue but also South Korea, from pot 3, 14th in the FIFA rankings, and who will have a good card to play in this group. The three headliners of Pool A, however, will be wary of a fourth thief: Nigeria, reference of women's football in Africa since it has ten continental titles in twelve participations. A regular, too, great competitions.
