The French women’s team snatched victory in Slovenia on Tuesday (3-2), in their second qualifying match for the 2023 World Cup. Marie-Antoinette Katoto scored twice. The match: 2-3 After the card achieved in Greece (10-0), Friday, for the entry into contention of the Blue in the qualification campaign for the 2023 World Cup, we thought maybe a little too quickly that the ticket for Australia and New Zealand was already in his pocket. The players of Corinne Deacon understood this Tuesday in the small town of Murska Sobota, in the north-east of Slovenia, that the path was not so clear.

But the contorted face of Corinne Deacon in the last moments testified to the difficulties of the Blue. After two big chances (76th, 84th), Slovenia came back on a penalty from the excellent Zver, conceded by Sakina Karchaoui (88th). It took another penalty, obtained and transformed by Amel Majri (90th 4), to avoid a draw that would have stained. read also Qualifying schedule for the 2023 Women’s World Cup The player: Katoto carries the tricolor attack After her first international treble in Greece, Marie-Antoinette Katoto carried the French attack again in Slovenia.
