The French women continued their faultless. Sunday evening, Olivier Krumbholz’s players got closer to the last four of the Euro by winning against Montenegro (27-19) in the first match of the main round on Sunday.
The Habs relied on an iron defense, the image of their goalkeeper, Cléopâtre Darleux. The goalkeeper continued to disgust her opponents and multiplied the parades (more than 40% of stops). The Alsatian gained confidence from the start with 3 stops in a row. Enough to put his team on the right track.
In the 36th minute, the France team had only conceded 9 goals. Proof of the serenity displayed by the tricolors, they have never been behind in the score while Montenegro was until then one of the most serious threats in the competition. Offensively, Pauletta Foppa was inspired with 6 goals.
This victory is the fourth in as many matches for the French women. A situation that brings them closer to the semi-finals, while waiting for their next match against Germany on Tuesday (8:30 p.m.).
