Caroline Drouin, after the qualification of Les Bleues in the semi-finals of the World Cup: “The team has grown”

Caroline Drouin (opening half of Les Bleues, victorious over Italy in the quarterfinals of the World Cup) : “There is a lot of pride because we passed this quarter, we knew that it could stop today (Saturday). We had a very good match, we didn’t panic even though it was tough from the start. We had possession, we dominated but we did not materialize. We kept calm and it was over.

The team grew because there was no panic in the weak times. The half-time did us good to switch back, put the pressure back on them with the wind in our favor in the second period. We still had to wait twenty minutes to wear them out before we finally unrolled. »

Gaëlle Hermet (captain and third line of Les Bleues) : “We simply savor being qualified in the semi-finals. What makes the difference today is that the group has really matured on this notion of serenity. At no time did we feel worried, we tightened up, we remained disciplined. We were on their side but we couldn’t score points. We managed this downturn very well in the first half. At halftime, we said to ourselves that we had to let go of the horses while remaining in our game project.

As the group matches progressed, we wanted to let go offensively, take control, set up our game, simply play. Next week, we will have to be even more precise in the scoring zones because all the points will be important. »
