Foot F: minimum service for the Blues, without forcing against Ireland

First goal achieved! The French women's team logically won in Metz against Ireland (1-0) during the first qualifying match for Euro 2025. A clear victory, despite the difficulty in making the break, which allows the Blue to concentrate on the next match against Sweden.

The evening was mild in Metz this Friday evening. With a beautiful lawn, more than 17,000 spectators present and a temperature of around 17 degrees, all the ingredients were there. Unsurprisingly, the France team quickly seized the ball, multiplying the passing circuits. And very quickly too, Ireland was overtaken. From the 6th minute, the Blues opened the scoring from a set piece, a specialty of Hervé Renard's players. Katoto took the opportunity to score his 28th goal for the selection. Subsequently, Karchaoui and Cascarino particularly distinguished themselves with an offensive game which often leaned to the left. The defensive sector of Les Bleues was not used. Peyraud-Magnin, who was celebrating his 50th selection, did not have the slightest thing to do in the first period. It's simple: while the France team had a total of 13 attempts, Ireland did not manage a single shot at the break.

These are the words of Hervé Renard at the microphone of France 3 just before the start of the second period. Aware of the clear domination of his players, the French technician expected more, particularly in the offensive sector in order to take definitive shelter. And this is perhaps the area of ​​improvement for the French team. Always serene and easy defensively, Hervé Renard's players were unable to make the break. Despite the 9 corners, the 21 shots including 8 on target, and the beautiful header from Eugénie Le Sommer on the bar, the match ended with a score of 1 goal to 0.

But the essential remains elsewhere. “Tonight we will remember the victory and the new clean sheet” rejoiced coach Hervé Renard. In this group of death, France had to obtain this victory against Ireland. Once done, the Blues can concentrate on their next match which will take place on April 9 against Sweden. In the meantime, France takes the lead in group 3 after the draw between England and the Scandinavian country.
