As the French team sees a first crown at the Euro (July 6-31), Corinne Diacre echoed the (big) ambitions of the Bleues during the continental competition, where they never managed to surpass the quarts.

Still in search of a first title, the French women’s football team, returning to Clairefontaine after an internship in the Basque Country, hopes to finally succeed in opening its counter at the Euro, a program from 6 to 31 July in England . And if the Bleues managed to reach the semi-finals at the 2011 World Cup at the 2012 JO, they systematically slipped out of the doors of the last Euro square in the last three editions (2003 et al). And if it was finally a happy year?

“It is already necessary to believe,” said their selector Corinne Diacre on Tuesday, RMC reports. We have this ambition displayed to go on July 31, that’s for sure. We have to continue to work on our acquisitions and refine ourselves on the details. Sa veut réussir quelque ay pinili ang ensemble, le mot aujourd’hui c’est le collectif. And then there are some seniors who are nearing the end of their careers, this is probably the last big competition for some, it’s the moment. This is the moment. “

“The exchanges are much more fluid”

And despite an almost perfect course in qualifying, with seven wins for a zero, 44 ​​goals scored and none conceded, the team with the best defense of these eliminators has “still things to work”, pour Diacre. “After that, even when things were very positive. During this season, we scored a lot of goals, we scored very little. And when we scored, we were able to keep a positive score and win the matches. “, she continued, before making sure her group” lived well. “

Corinne Diacre, who has been able to maintain conflicting relations with elements such as Amandine Henry, who will not be in the Euro, also admits to having improved her way of functioning, as her players resonate. “I thought well in their time, there were even discussions, I thought that was what they wanted and in fact not at all. We have succeeded so to speak. This means that at the level of communication, it works well. Today, the exchanges are much more fluidthere is a lot more proximity, informal discussions “, she appreciates. But is this going to bear fruit in competition?
