The French national team has already qualified for the fourth final of the Nations League, and eventually won over Portugal (1-0).

The French national team played in his honor on Tuesday evening in Portugal, in Leiria. In the warmth of the Magalhaes-Pessoa stadium, the Blues have had nothing to play for since the key goal was scored on Friday. In Rennes, Hervé Renard's girls defeated Austria (3-0) and secured first place in Group B of the UEFA Nations League, a qualifying position for the Final Four to be held in 2024. Therefore, as expected, the coach rotated extensively. The match was not decided for a long time, and was played with a very volatile team, which turned in stoppage time in favor of the French, winning (1-0) thanks to a goal by Grace Gioro, who entered in the 70th minute and scored from outside the goal. Right-footed cross from Vicky Picho (90+3).

Three overs for Blue, 5 wins out of 6

Renard made 10 changes and included 5 of the 6 players threatened with suspension in the semi-final match of the competition if he received a warning on Tuesday evening in Portugal (De Almeida, Henry, Le Sommer, Mbok, W. Renard). On the bench, while Lea Le Garric appeared in the starting lineup, alongside Vivienne Acsie, Vicky Bichoux and Julie Dufour in attack. With this upset team (Duran – Perisset, Lacrar, E Cascarino, Kerchaoui – Mathieu, Le Jarric, Magri – Pichu, Assie, Dufour), France created the best chances of this match for nothing.

Before the two sums found by Melvin Mallard and Picho before the goal of salvation (90 + 2), Asei showed itself to be the most dangerous. His first attempt, in the 13th minute, with his left foot, was blocked by Moraes, as was the case in the 19th minute, which was more timid. The Portuguese goalkeeper got off to a poor start in the second half, but was blocked by the post with a powerful shot from the West Ham player with his right foot in the 62nd minute. Kenza Daly also scored in the 63rd minute before Mallard, who had just entered the game, was prevented from recovering. The Blues were also fearless in this 5th out of 6 encounter which they finished with a clean sheet (conceding just one goal against Norway on 27 October). Solene Durand made a wonderful intervention against Anna Capita by pushing her knee back, and blocked the Lusitanian striker's shot (78). The French goalkeeper was indeed fooled but Encarnação's goal was disallowed due to a non-existent offside by Pinto. Therefore, the curtain falls on this year 2023 with this fifth victory in 6 matches for the LDN team. Hervé Renard's players will return on February 21, 2024 for the semi-final match.
