This is probably not the reward they expected but Cléopatre Darleux and Pauletta Foppa could always console themselves with this honorary title. Despite a small final below their level in the competition, the two Brest Bretagne Handball players showed a level of play and statistics that justify their presence in the standard team of this Euro. ? With 67 saves in six games, Cléopâtre Darleux posted an efficiency of 36.8% of stops in the blue cage, the second best percentage of the competition, behind her former teammate Sandra Toft.
At the same time, pivot Pauletta Foppa also shone with 23 goals in seven games. This typical team was composed thanks to the votes of the fans and with the support of a panel of experts.
