Blue: Amandine Henry recalled despite her criticisms against Corinne Deacon

The coach of the France team, Corinne Deacon, recalled Thursday her captain Amandine Henry for the November matches, four days after the strong criticisms made publicly by the midfielder of Lyon against her.

Package on injury in September and not selected for “sporting reason” in October, the 31-year-old international returns among the Blue called for the last two qualifying matches for Euro-2022 against Austria, on November 27 in Guingamp, and Kazakhstan on December 1 in Vannes.

“If it takes questioning, I am ready”, “my commitment is total” but “the problems we will solve eye to eye”, said Corinne Deacon in video-conference press. “I remain standing, I am supported by my president and players as well,” she said again.

A few days ago, Amandine Henry exhausted Corinne Deacon by evoking relationship problems in an interview with Canal +. She echoed the “heavy and negative feedback” from the tricolor locker room. “This is the feeling of the majority of the team. Some girls don’t dare to speak, there is fear ”but“ if I don’t speak, who will speak? », She asserted.

Lyon goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi not summoned

Beyond Henry, the coach called in November the usual executives of Lyon Wendie Renard, Amel Majri, Eugénie Le Sommer and Delphine Cascarino. However, she did not summon Lyon goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi who, after stepping back and criticizing Deacon, opened the door to a return on Wednesday.

The Parisians Grace Geyoro, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Kadidiatou Diani, who opposed OL in the league on Friday, are also present.

Valérie Gauvin, the center-forward of the Bleues during the World-2019, is forfeited due to injury. Young Lyon striker Melvine Malard is not in the last list of the year either.
