Jean-Aimé Toupane after Ireland and France: “I liked what I saw”

French national team coach Jean-Aimee Toupin defeated Ireland in Dublin to qualify for Euro 2025 (100:48) : “I am truly satisfied with our production. The girls showed the virtues of cohesion and team spirit. It’s never easy in a window of only three or four workouts. I liked what I saw.

When I arrived at the head of this team, it wasn’t always like that. We were able to involve everyone, we are in the process of accumulating experience for individual players. It was interesting for our young people to see how they could react. I managed to cope with the gameplay, although the goal was always to win. When the score is big, we can do things differently. I wanted to see the news in the context of the national selection. I am very pleased. We will still have to work on the next window while using the best available windows. »

Sarah Michel, captain of the French team : “Our goal was to get two wins back in this window. We played seriously. We knew that Latvia (71:49 victory, November 9) would probably be our most difficult match. We made it look easy against Ireland. Even if it’s a team a step down, it’s a brave team. We worked until the end, which is encouraging. »
