Publicly supported by Noël Le Graët after the defeat in the semi-finals of the Euro, coach Corinne Deacon has been extended at the head of Les Bleues.

Corinne Deacon will continue her work at the head of the France team. Noël Le Graët the French football federation have renewed their confidence in him by offering him a new contract. A lease that extends until 2024.

Heading for the Paris Olympics

The former Clermont coach will lead the tricolor selection during the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, scheduled for 2023, and also during the Paris Olympic Games scheduled for the following year.. A great reward for this technician who managed to take Les Bleues to a new level. With her, Wendie Henry and her teammates reached the last four of a major tournament for the first time since 2012.

As a reminder, Deacon took control of the French team in 2017, replacing Olivier Echouafni. Before her series of recent good results, she had experienced a few hiccups. The World Cup at home had been average (elimination in the quarters) and there were also some conflicts with the major players in the group (Henry, Le Sommer) which resulted in a rejuvenation of the workforce.
