The Tricolores, with a reorganized team compared to the Olympics, which must compose without Marine Johannes, their best offensive asset, injured at the last minute, achieved a great feat by dominating the vice world champions.

Without pressure, aggressive and effective in defense, solidly offensive, the French impose themselves with style in front of a dumbfounded Australian public.

The reaction of Jean Aimé Toupane on the team’s website (coach):

“We know that to stay in these matches, you need a good defensive base. We defended hard, we stayed on our principles, the girls were courageous despite the qualities of the Australian team, who play without the ball, in space.

Even in the weak times for us, we stayed in it, we didn’t panic, we got the ball moving, with a little bit of success.

A competition is the sequence, you win, you don’t have time to savor that you go to the next match. We will savor at the end. I want to congratulate the players, they have a lot of heart. »
