Earn points. This is the objective of Hervé Renard and his team for the second match of Group A2 of the League of Nations, against Austria, Tuesday September 26 at 6:30 p.m., at Viola Park in Vienna. After their 2-0 victory against the Portuguese in Valenciennes last Friday, the Blues, fifth in the FIFA rankings, will face the 16th nation in the world.

Friday was “a good start in terms of results”, estimated the coach, even if his players did not shine. They will have the opportunity to improve, particularly on set pieces, against a tough team who held on to the Norwegians (13th), at home in Oslo (1-1). Amandine Henry, back in the group, and her teammates are banking on this competition to strengthen their automatisms before the Paris 2024 Games, where they are automatically qualified as host country.
