Hervé Renard made official this Monday the list of 18 players selected for the Paris Olympic Games. For the moment, the Bleues remain at 25 because of the two qualifying matches for Euro 2025 against Sweden and Ireland.

18 players for one goal: a medal. For his last mission at the head of the French women’s team, Hervé Renard announced this Monday the list of 18 players selected for the Paris Olympic Games (July 24-August 10), where France, automatically qualified as host country, is part of a fairly tough Group A with Colombia, Canada – reigning Olympic champions – and New Zealand.

A list that includes Eugénie Le Sommer, still recovering from a knee injury. “There is no longer any doubt about her presence at the Olympics. If the green light is given and Eugénie feels ready, she will be able to return for the second match,” assured the French coach.

Not qualified for Tokyo, the Blues made gold their main objective after their elimination in the quarter-finals of the World Cup last summer.

Don’t forget the Euro

Currently 25 at Clairefontaine for two weeks, the Tricolores will remain at full strength since another objective must be achieved this summer: qualification for Euro 2025. Leader of its group, the French team plays its last two matches against Sweden (July 12) and in Ireland (July 16) and remains in a very good position to qualify. “The ideal would be to obtain qualification against Sweden, Friday in Dijon. This match will be of considerable importance in the preparation for the Olympic Games. We have everything in our hands, it’s up to us to negotiate well.”

At the end of these two matches, Inès Benyahia, Julie Dufour and Thiniba Samoura will leave the selection. On their return from Ireland, the Bleues will have two days of rest. They will meet again in Lyon on Friday, July 19, for the last week of preparation before their entry into the Olympic Games, on Thursday, July 25 against Colombia at the Groupama Stadium.
