2023 World Cup qualifiers: Les Bleues rule out Wales and competition

by archysport

It was a meeting not to be missed. Four days after their easy victory against Kazakhstan (6-0), the players of Corinne Deacon have lined up their sixth straight victory in the qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup which will take place in Australia and New Zealand. This Tuesday, at the Roudourou stadium in Guingamp (Côtes-d’Armor), the stronghold of Noël Le Graët, the president of the FFF, the Blue did not really shine but never trembled against the Welsh Dragonnes (2 -0). With four games to go, the Blue are five lengths ahead, the first place, synonymous with direct qualification is emerging more and more.

What you must remember

In a first period which took a long time to start, the Blue relied on Lyonnaise Delphine Cascarino, who offered a real offering to Kadidiatou Diani for the opening of the scoring in added time (1-0, 45th + 2). Previously, the PSG player, Marie-Antoinette Katoto had created the only opportunity on a shot countered for a corner (25th). A menu not very substantial even if the essentials were done. Faced with the nation ranked 34th in the Fifa rankings, France was not really worried. With their advantage in score, Charlotte Bilbault’s teammates mastered without too much difficulty. We can just regret the lack of panache, so the second period offered few scoring opportunities on both sides. Especially since the Welsh ended the match at 10 after the expulsion of Green (70th). The debates are agitated at the end of the match: with a post for the Welsh women followed by the counter concluded by Selma Bacha (2-0, 90th).

The player: Delphine Cascarino

In a match without scale, the Lyonnaise had the merit of enlightening the game of France. It is also she who is at the origin of the only goal of the Blue on a huge job on the right side of the French attack. At 24, for her 31st selection, Delphine Cascarino is one of the pillars of Corinne Deacon.

The number: 5

Pauline Peyraud-Magnin spent a fairly quiet evening in her goal. At the hour of play, she made a high class stop on a fabulous cover of the former Lyon, Jess Fishlock. A stop that allows to ensure a fifth clean shit during the last six outings of the France team. And a little success also on a strike from Fishlock which crashes on the post (89th).
