Euro 2025 Qualifications: Les Bleues win against Sweden thanks to a goal from Renard

The French team, led by Wendie Renard, new starter after her injury, won against Sweden (1-0) and takes the lead in its Euro-2025 qualifying group. While waiting for the match between the Irish and the English, the Blues, with six points, fly to the top of the group, while Sweden is third.

A perfect return for the captain of the Blue, who had a scare on Friday against Ireland after suffering a “little discomfort” at the very end of the match. Apt, she held her place well throughout the match alongside Griedge Mbock, with Maëlle Lakrar sliding into the right back position. Better yet, it was she who delivered the Bleues at the end of the match (80th).

Only good things before the double confrontation on May 30 and early June against the English, reigning European champions and finalists of the last World Cup. In the rain of Gothenburg in Sweden, the Blues showed a better appearance than against Ireland on Friday (1-0), with constant pressing and good overflows especially on the right side, thanks to Kadidiatou Diani in good shape and technically above.

They controlled the entire match, apart from a save on the line from Selma Bacha (41st), but again narrowly missed in the last gesture. It was not until the end of the match (80th) that the Swedish defense gave in and once again from a set piece. After a corner, the ball dragged into the Swedish area and then returned to the left side. Sakina Karchaoui delivered a cross to the far post, where Marie-Antoinette Katoto headed it perfectly for Wendie Renard who struck hard in front of the goal.

Hervé Renard's players dominated, making Fridolina Rolfö's teammates suffer by managing to lock down their game in depth. Pauline Peyraud-Magnin also had good outings (29th, 90 1), especially at the end of the match when the Swedes pushed. At the end of the meeting, she appeared to be hit in the ankle. Insisting on the right side, the two Lyonnaises Diani and Le Sommer combined well from the start of the match (2nd), without being really dangerous.

Like Friday against Ireland (1-0), Hervé Renard, who was excluded because of his annoyed reactions on his sidelines, did not line up his attacking duo Le Sommer-Katoto. The one who made her 192nd appearance on Tuesday, becoming the 2nd most capped player of Les Bleues, tied with Elise Bussaglia and behind Sandrine Soubeyrand, left with an injury (60th), visibly affected in one knee.

Before half-time, another Lyonnaise had to give up her place: Delphine Cascarino, returning from a long injury also to her knee, had to be replaced by Vicki Becho (39th), excluded at the end of the match for a second card yellow (90 8). Six OL players were lined up on Tuesday, as Lyon met PSG in the Champions League semi-final.
