State of the squad

"There is a little uncertainty about Amel Majri. We are able to replace any player in qualitative and quantitative terms. Shanice van de Sanden is back in training, but she may not be ready for the match. She is finding her way back to full fitness; this injury allowed her to recover physically. The girls are a little tired after the break. I was worried about the playing time of some but they showed in the last game that they were all ready to play. We have three matches to come and we will try to name the best team each time. "

Her form

" I feel good. Sometimes there are physical problems, but this is settled with the medical staff. The squad is big enough to play every game. Many things are put in place by the staff. "


Le tirage au sort

"It's a good draw. It is a Nordic team that will offer a committed type of football, but we are confident. "
