The Blue, domineering but long clumsy, logically came to the end of Switzerland (2-0) Tuesday in a friendly match at the Saint-Symphorien stadium in Metz

Four days after a first victory by the same score against the same opponent, the Habs won thanks to a double from Wendy Renard at the end of the game (77th, 90th 1 from penalty)

The French women, who dominated their opponents, lacked efficiency for a long time before succeeding in cracking very physical Swiss women

The results of the Bleues 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 forwards Eugénie Le Sommer, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Valérie Gauvin, the French team sometimes offered interesting phases of the game, while conceding hardly any opportunity to Switzerland, 19th in the world ranking

Les Bleues, unbeaten since the World Cup-2019 (15 matches), have kept their clean sheet in their last eight meetings

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

From the outset, the Bleues imposed their domination, confiscating the ball but without managing to build on their superiority or to worry much about the solid Swiss defense

After a first opportunity from Clara Matéo, whose strike was countered in extremis, the Habs then multiplied the set pieces (26th, 27th, 33rd, 37th, 41st, 45th) but lacked precision to really worry the Swiss

The only real opportunity for the Blues came after a high recovery: Sandie Toletti stole the ball from an opponent, threw Grace Geyoro into the box, who put her back, but the Parisian’s strike was diverted by the Swiss goalkeeper (38th)

The Swiss team did not have many situations and mainly relied on Ramona Bachmann, the Paris SG striker, to try to unbalance the French Without success

After the break, the Habs accelerated and cornered Switzerland in front of its surface, multiplying the opportunities, like a pivot strike from Malard (58th) or a header on the crossbar from Renard (59th) But the lack of success and efficiency prevented them from taking the lead for a long time

Finally, the Bleues logically managed to open the scoring: on yet another free kick, Perisset placed the ball on Renard’s head (1-0, 77th) The defender then doubled the bet on a penalty obtained by Kadidiatou Diani at the very end of the match (2-0, 90th 1)
