Spain v France Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Monday 15th July 2013

Spain have also been in pretty decent form of late and have lost just twice in an incredible twenty matches of which they completely destroyed Kazakhstan 13-0 and Turkey 1-10, so despite not really being fancied as a front runner to win this tournament, France will have to be at their very best to take all 3pts in my opinion as this Spanish side is very capable of winning this tournament. With the recent win over England the Spanish will be full of confidence but France are no walk overs and I expect a tough well fought out match.

France destroyed Russia on Friday at this very stadium and will be coming into the match brimming with confidence and looking to book their place early into the next stage, with a double strike from Marie-Laure Delie putting France 2 – 0 up before the break. In the second half Russia never really got back into the game although they did manage to grab one back late in the game and after France took a bigger lead with Eugenie Le Sommer firing home making Elena Morozova’s goal simply a condolence.

Spain v France Team News

Spain Team News:

With such a young squad Coach Ignacio Quereda has started the tournament in explosive style after beating contenders England 3-2 with a late goal in added time, but the Spanish side have already proved during the group stage of qualification that they can mix it up with the very best when required and with a style of play that is very similar to the men’s national side they will certainly feel confident of getting something out of the game against France. Whether or not they do will rely mainly on how Vero Boquete, Jenni Hermoso and Adriana Martin perform as these three ladies are certainly the backbone of the squad and ones that make things happen.

France Team News:

After the double strike from Paris Saint-Germain FC Marie-Laur Delie the striker will surely be in the starting eleven come Monday evening as she looked calm and controlled when taking her chances against Russia. With Louisa Necib fit again after a hip injury it will truly increase Frances chances on progressing into the knockout stages. With Spain never beating France they will be looking to take their tally to 10 unbeaten games, although the last win against Spain was back in the year 2001.
