Janice Cayman had to wait until the end of the match, but ended up scoring a brace, her team’s 15th and 16th goals.
The Olympique Lyonnais striker did not want to put the Red Flames’ performance in perspective after the 19-0 match against Armenia. “It’s really nice to win with such a high score, and several girls were able to score their first goal (s) in the selection, it’s good for them”, rejoices Janice Cayman. “We managed this match well. In the second half, it was initially more complicated, but we were able to put that extra boost.”
Cayman, despite his experience, had never experienced such a score – and for good reason, it is a European record in national selections. “No, I’ve never known that, but it was important to stay serious until the end. We didn’t want to hold back either, we wanted to respect them until the end,” she points out. But what to remember from such a match before the clash against Poland? “It’s a good omen! It will be more difficult defensively, for sure. But we made good combinations in the axis, on the sides, and the players mounted in the game did their job.”
And if this score is not really an advertisement for women’s football, Janice Cayman replies: “I believe that in the men too, there are weaker nations, like San Marino. These 19 goals, you have to put them in. anyway, ”she concludes with a smile.
