Amandine Henry did not hide her happiness after being summoned to the Bleues for the World Cup in Australia.
It’s time for a big comeback for Amandine Henry. As expected, the former captain of the France team is preparing to find the Blue. After more than two years of absence in selection, the Northerner was called by Hervé Renard among the 26 players likely to play in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand from July 20.
And if the tricolor coach has summoned an enlarged group and must still rule out three players before the big departure for the other side of the world, the native of Lille can be optimistic. Amandine Henry has indeed been called when she has been on the side for more than three months, between knee injury and personal problem. ” We have endeavored to accompany her very closely so that she is ready for the start of this preparation,” explained Hervé Renard about him.
In the wake of the announcement, Amandine Henry shared her joy on social networks. ” Ready to put on the cleats for the blue house. What pride to make my return to the France team, she wrote on Instagram. It is with great emotion that I reunite with my teammates and prepare to represent my country again. Thanks to the coach and all the staff for their trust. The World Cup is the highest level of competition for any female football player and I am determined to give my best to help the team succeed. »
