“I miss you so much France team … What more could I have done to find you?” Hamraoui’s misunderstanding

The FC Barcelona midfielder, recent winner of the Champions League, was not recalled by Corinne Deacon.

The selection of the France team Corinne Deacon has chosen not to retain the Lyonnaise Amandine Henry and the Barcelona Kheira Hamraoui in her list of 23 for the friendly against Germany on June 10 in Strasbourg, unveiled on Tuesday. “It’s a decision of the moment, it is a selection at the moment T, on a last game of the season,” said in a press conference the boss of the Blue, about Henry, who was her captain at the World Cup in France in 2019 and that she had chosen for the friendlies in April against England and the United States. “Indeed her last performances played in my decision, and then she is not the only one absent, it’s just a decision for this match,” added Deacon, about the 31-year-old Lyonnaise (93 selections, 13 goals).

The coach has also chosen not to summon Kheira Hamraoui (31 years old, 36 caps, 3 goals) once again who has won three titles with Barça this season, including the Champions League. The latter expressed her disappointment on Twitter: “I miss you so much @equipedefrance … What more could I have done to be able to find you?”, She wrote.

“Just because she won three titles doesn’t mean I’m going to choose her,” Deacon replied. “I followed her performances, like those of all the players who play abroad, and on the same post I preferred to see Sandie Toletti who was absent at the last meeting. There is nothing definitive about Kheira. But I have to make choices, ”she said.

The selector explained that she wanted to find the path to success against an opponent well known to the Blue and “who has rarely smiled at us in the past”, while hoping “to find the words to motivate the players despite the physical and mental fatigue”. Among the selected, first call for Kessya Bussy, the striker of the stadium of Reims. “This is a reward after his good season in D1, I had already failed to take it on one of the previous gatherings but I had left it at the disposal of his club by mutual agreement”, explained Deacon. The friendly match against Germany, the last meeting of the Blue season, will be played behind closed doors at the Meinau stadium on June 10 (8:10 p.m.).
