The black series of the Blues

The French women’s team has not reached the quarter-final stage since the London Games.

D-1 for the Blues. Out at the top of their group thanks to two victories against Italy (5-1) and Belgium (2-1) and a draw without stake against Iceland (1-1), the players of Corinne Deacon will play this Saturday their quarter-finals against the Netherlands.

The task does not look easy for the France team. And not only because the Dutch are defending champions and vice-world champions. The recent past of Les Bleues does not encourage optimism.

Absent from the Tokyo Games, the French have not passed the pitfall of the quarter-finals of a major tournament since the London Games in 2012. They thus remain on five consecutive eliminations at this stage of the quarter-finals: in 2013 against Denmark at the Euro (1-1, 2-4 TAB), in 2015 against Germany at the World Cup (1-1, 5-4 TAB), in 2016 against Canada at the Rio Games (1- 0), in 2017 against England at the Euro (1-0) and in 2019 against the United States (2-1) at the World Cup at home.
