Happy with the performance of her troops on Tuesday against Kazakhstan, Corinne Deacon returned to the upheavals that have agitated the French women’s team for several weeks.
Two matches, two victories and a qualification for the next European Championship: the Blue did not seem to feel too much of the storm that fell on the French selection after the comments made by Amandine Henry on the bad atmosphere in French team. At least from an accounting perspective. Four days after having locked their qualification for the Euro by winning against Austria (3-0), the French have indeed crushed Kazakhstan (12-0).
Two victories which were sufficient for the happiness of Corinne Deacon. The French technician also preferred to stop at this record rather than evoke the turmoil that has shaken the Blue for three weeks, even if she did not hesitate to address a new tackle to her captain. “It’s not me who pollutes the atmosphere, I do my job”, launched the coach before highlighting her record: “I do things after that you like it or it doesn’t. In the meantime, I can assure you that my job is to take this French team to the highest level. My primary objective was to qualify the selection for the European Championship. For the rest, I will take a little time and think about the future, but a little later. ”
And despite the recent declarations of Noël Le Graët who called for a meeting of his wishes, the time for an explanation between Corinne Deacon and her players does not seem to come. “I think we’ve talked about it enough this week. We have just won 12-0, we have qualified for the European Championship, which is already a very good thing. You have to see the glass half full ”, has indeed swept the former coach of Clermont.
12-0, it’s too easy for the Blue
Le Graët decided between Henry and Deacon
