Amandine Leynaud (goalkeeper of the France team) : “We had a really extraordinary first half. I am very proud of what we have done, especially in defense. There is no great goalkeeper without great defense. Tonight, my teammates made my job so much easier. We held on, that’s what we need to remember. It bodes well for the future. I think this is my last selection in France and I am already very happy to have made a score of parity on this last match ”.
Olivier Krumbholz (coach of the France team) : “The first half was excellent. Then Norway raised its level with girls coming off the bench. We were able to recover in the last ten minutes, we had the balls to win. There is every reason to be satisfied with this game. We have worked a lot in the last 48 hours, there was a lot of questioning after the first match. We are building up confidence but we have to keep working because there was still a big hole for twenty minutes ”.
