The French, who dominated their opponents, were ineffective for a long time before succeeding in doing crack very physical Swiss women The record of the Blue during this double confrontation, which replaced the Tournament of France, canceled after the last minute defections of Iceland and Norway due to the health context, is very positive

Even deprived of several executives, including captain Amandine Henry or attackers Eugénie Le Sommer, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Valérie Gauvin, the French team has sometimes offered phases of the game interesting, while giving almost no opportunity to Switzerland, 19th in the world ranking Les Bleues, unbeaten since the 2019 World Cup (15 games), have kept their clean sheet in their last eight meetings

Four days after having tested a 3-4-3 organization, the selector Corinne Deacon had opted for a more usual 4-4-2 She had also started several players who had made a remarkable entry this weekend, such as full-backs Eve Perisset and Perle Morroni or striker Melvine Malard
