Victim of a lateral sprain of the left knee on Tuesday at Les Bleues training, Grace Geyoro will be well able to hold her place at the Euro (July 6-31).

A (big) sigh of relief. While we feared the worst for Grace Geyoro, who left Tuesday’s training at Clairefontaine in tears after injuring her knee alone, the PSG midfielder should be able to compete in the Euro with the Blues. If she suffers from a lateral sprain of the left knee, her duration of unavailability is estimated at ten days, and the medical staff of the French women’s team say they are “optimistic” and “reassuring” for the 24-year-old player. years, reports AFP.

“She will be with us at the Euro”

If Geyoro will be too fair to play the last two preparation matches for Corinne Deacon’s players, Saturday evening in Beauvais against Cameroon and six days later against Vietnam in Orléans, she should be able to hold her place for the start of the Blues in this English Euro, July 10 against Italy in Rotherham. “She will be with us at the Euro,” said the same source, while Deacon must officially communicate her list of 23 players before Sunday.

Excellent news therefore, for Les Bleues, because Geyoro (49 caps, 8 goals) has become a real part of this team., which will try to do better than its predecessors, often disappointing during the continental meeting. Because if the French women’s team reached the last four at the World Cup (2011) and at the Olympic Games (2012), it never managed to go beyond the quarter-finals at the Euro, failing at this stage. in the last three editions. In a group where Belgium and Iceland will also play, they know what they have to do.
