Eve Périsset like Sandy Baltimore should be two executive players for the France team at the Euro. New Chelsea player, the first named can notably take advantage of it to clear her new territory.
The upcoming Euro, in England, will already be a life-size baptism for Eve Périsset, who signed up this season with Chelsea from Bordeaux. “I’m happy to be able to experience this, I’ve already been told that it will rain but it’s sunny! The pitch is beautiful, I can’t wait to discover the English fans and the atmosphere in the stadiums.” Holder on the right side of the defense, the former Lyonnaise (from 2012 to 2016) then Parisienne (from 2016 to 2020) is “looking forward to it starting”: “We are finally getting to the heart of the matter. We are good, we has everything you need to make a success of a great Euro.” On Sunday, Les Bleues will open their competition against Italy in the last group on the program (pool D), while the tournament starts on Wednesday evening with the debut of England ahead of Austria.
For Sandy Baltimore, a very different profile, the appetite is even more voracious because it is about the first major competition in selection for the Paris Saint-Germain player, only 22 years old : “The Euro was one of my goals. I was asked if I was ready, if I was thinking about it as it was approaching… I always said it was in the back of my mind, without me ask too many questions. I didn’t put a lot of pressure on myself, in the end I’m very happy to be part of it. The English public is a real football public, it will be huge!” The international with thirteen selections risks being used as a joker by Corinne Deacon, because she is still struggling to establish herself as a starter. If she was in two matches at the Tournoi de France, she did not start one of the two friendly matches against Cameroon (4-0) and Vietnam (7-0).
