For their last preparation match before the Euro (November 4-20), the French won against Poland on Sunday afternoon (30-19).
Unlike Friday night (33-26), Les Bleues experienced a delicate first period (led 14-12 at the break), where they suffered mainly in defense and multiplied the loss of balls. But the Olympic champions were able to rectify the situation perfectly: they quickly equalized (14-14, 32nd) before widening the gap. In the second half, the Poles only scored five goals!
“We are not yet at the bottom”, smiled Cléopâtre Darleux, at the microphone of the L’Équipe channel. Les Bleues now have a week to be ready: they will play their first Euro match on Saturday against North Macedonia, the host country. They could also cross paths with Poland again during the main round.
