FéMININES / SéLECTION - Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 10:24

Retour sur les prestations de nos joueuses sélectionnées.

Vanessa Gilles – Canada

Canada faced England for the first time in their history this weekend, winning 1-0. The Canadians then faced Nigeria, and again emerged victorious (2-1). Vanessa did not feature in either game.

Viviane Asseyi – France

Our striker was selected for Corine Diacre's France squad once again, for two friendlies against Japan and Denmark. Viviane came on as a sub in both games. As the build-up continues to this summer's World Cup in France, Viviane has every chance of making the final squad.


Kathellen Sousa – Brazil

Brazil also played twice last week, facing first Spain then Scotland. Unfortunately, the Brazilians lost both games (1-2 to Spain; 0-1 to the Scots). Kathellen was an unused substitute.

Erin Nayler – New Zealand

New Zealand played two friendlies against Norway, losing the first game 1-0 but getting revenge with a 1-0 victory in the second. This was the first time the Kiwis had beaten the Norwegians for 40 years. Erin started in that famous win, and had a decisive impact with a series of spectacular saves.
