Twenty-four players seeking their first major trophy. The coach of the France team Hervé Renard revealed, Wednesday February 14, the list for the Final Four of the League of Nations (February 23-28). The Blues will have to do without their captain Wendie Renard (155 caps), sidelined since December with a thigh injury.

On the other hand, they record the return of Delphine Cascarino, who missed the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand last summer due to a ruptured cruciate ligament contracted at the end of the season. The Lyonnaise returned to the field with her club at the end of January.

For this first edition of the Nations League, the Blues managed to reach the Final Four, with an almost perfect record (five wins, one draw). In the semi-finals, they will host Germany, their tormentor in the semi-final of Euro 2022, at Groupama Stadium in Lyon, while the other match will pit Spain, world champion, against the Netherlands.

The Blue list

Solène Durand, Pauline Peyraud-Magnin, Constance Picaud – Selma Bacha, Estelle Cascarino, Elisa De Almeida, Sakina Karchaoui, Maëlle Lakrar, Griedge Mbock, Eve Périsset, Thiniba Samoura – Kenza Dali, Grace Geyoro, Amandine Henry, Léa Le Garrec, Amel Majri, Sandie Toletti – Sandy Baltimore, Kadidiatou Diani, Julie Dufour, Marie-Antoinette Katoto, Eugénie Le Sommer, Clara Mateo, Delphine Cascarino
