Key Players: Wendie Renard, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Melvine Malard


  • 33-year-old captain Wendie Renard is definitely the heart of defensive tactics. No matter how femal football evolves and changes, she is still the evergreen tree of the French squad, with 86 appearances in 11 years.

  • She is the first player to reach over 100 appearances in UEFA women's champions league, which is a huge achievement for a female plyaer to do that. Renard has done a lot of achievements and reords that broke people's prejudice against women,especially female players.

  • Apart from that, she led Olympique Lyonnais to win the WCL in this season when they had a 3-1 win against Barcelona, which was the seventh time that Wendie Renard claimed the throne in this competition with OL since she joined the team in 2007.


  • Marie-Aotoniette Katoto is a tall center forward for the manger Corinne Diacre's flexible tactics. She has scored 25 goals in 28 games for PSG this season, which was absolutely a stunning number for her.

  • The 23-year-old has a bright future when she was regarded as another genius for Gallic rooster after Kylian Mbappé came out of nowhere for the male team. She has scored 19 goals in 23 caps for the national team, what an incredible efficiency that is.

  • Katoto plays skillful football with some fantastic dribbles and speed. She can do a coast-to-coast goal and catch people's attention easily. Definitely a phenomenal player.


  • Another young talent, Melvine Malard, who could have some gorgeous cooperations with Katoto, also has an excellent record of 17 goals and 6 assists for Olympique Lyonnais in this season.

  • Even though her club teammate, E Le Sommer, who is the top scorer of the French female football team in total, has been confirmed not to participate in this competition, Melard and Katoto can carry the torch and take the responsibility for Gallic rooster to break through their record of 3 straight losses in the quarter-finals.

Manager: Corinne Diacre

  • The self-sufficient French talent system has cultivated their former captain and most-capped player (121) to become the manger of the team now.

  • She took up her current role after France was knocked out in the last quarter-finals of Women's EURO in 2017. It will be her first time to begin the journey of Weuro as a manager.



  • Despite being considered as a powerful force in European football all the time, France still needs to go further when the awkward record of losing 3 consecutive games of quarter-finals.

  • France has ever won two knockout games in major competitions when they defeated England in penalty shootouts at the 2011 World Cup and 2-1 vs. Sweden at the 2012 Olympics in London. But again, they still were eliminated in the semi-finals of both tournaments.

  • They must try to prove that they are able to stand on top of the mountains, as Corinee Diacre feels the burden on her shoulders.
