Sure of their strength, the Blue continue. Traveling to Serbia, the France team logically and easily won away (0-2), during the 3rd day of the qualifiers for Euro 2022, despite the absences of Wendie Renard, Amandine Henry and Grace Geyoro in particular. Almost ten months after their large victory against the Serbs at home (6-0), the players of Corinne Deacon did the job this Friday evening without shining in Subotica. Dominators from the start, the Blue saw Andjela Frajtovic score against his camp from the first minutes (6th), after a cross from Kadidiatou Diani and a deviation from Marie-Antoinette Katoto unfortunately pushed back by Milica Kostic on her left side. Shortly after, on a cross from Delphine Cascarino, if Amel Majri was a little short, the Lyonnaise then took advantage of an involuntary handover from Orsoja Vajda to make the break shortly after the quarter of an hour of play (16th).

Karchaoui, the only spark in the second half

Behind, against a very limited team, France did not shine except a strike with the right foot on the crossbar of Sakina Karchaoui in the last minutes (83rd). Established in the absence of Sarah Bouhaddi, Pauline Peyraud-Magnin also spent a very quiet evening, with only two stops to be made during this meeting. With this third success in as many matches, the players of Corinne Deacon climb to 2nd place in Group G, three points behind Austria but with one less match on the clock. On Tuesday, in Skopje, the Blues will have the opportunity to return to equality at the top of the group in the event of victory against North Macedonia. The double confrontation against the former players of Dominik Thalhammer (October 27 and November 27) will be decisive for the qualification for Euro 2022 without having to make calculations.
