Unfortunately, the adventure of the World came to an end Friday 28 June 2019, for Eugénie Le Sommer, Amandine Henry, Wendie Renard and the other with the elimination of the Blue in the quarter finals of the World Cup, against the United States (2-1). A defeat all the more difficult because the arbitration is challenged : in the 85th minute, while a hand appeared, the referee has not whistled a penalty in favour of the French Team, and did not even wanted to view the video help in the arbitration.
The Blue “proud”
While the Blue ones were inconsolable, they have been able to count on the support of the French fans but also players of the Team of France male. Thus, Antoine Griezmann has consolées : “The competition stops for you but it is the beginning of a beautiful story. You we have conquered.”, a-t-he writes. Kylian Mbappé, him, said, “The end of an adventure…” but said “You may have lost the cup, but you have won for sure the heart of the French”. On his side, Paul Pogba has admitted to being “proud of our ‘Bleuses'”.
