Absent from Hervé Renard’s first list, Kheira Hamraoui could be selected to play in the 2023 World Cup with Les Bleues.
As the start of the 2023 World Cup is fast approaching – the tournament, which takes place in Australia and New Zealand, will take place from July 20 to August 20 -, Hervé Renard will unveil his list on Tuesday June 6 at 16 hours. Already deprived of the Lyonnaise Delphine Cascarino, injured, and probably of the Parisian Marie-Antoinette Katoto, the new coach could create a surprise.
Not selected for the last two matches of the French women’s team, Kheira Hamraoui, who is having a good end to the season with Paris Saint-Germain, could return to the tricolor group for the World Cup. An idea which is in any case not ruled out by Hervé Renard, who recalled on the airwaves of Europe 1 that the former Barcelonan “is one of the selectable players”.
“Sif I feel that I need her, I will call her back”
” I was far away in Saudi Arabia. I heard about it but I was not at the heart of all these stories. So somewhere, it doesn’t concern me. Me, I focus on the sporting aspect and if I feel that I need her, I will call her back.said the 54-year-old technician, and added: “I don’t look in the rear view mirror because I didn’t have the right vehicle, I wasn’t there. I don’t really know what happened and then, honestly, I didn’t try too hard to understand. »
“I don’t take into account the little stories that there may be. I am attached to the sporting aspect”, concluded Hervé Renard. As a reminder, Kheira Hamraoui was victim of a violent attack in November 2021 against a backdrop of rivalry with his ex-teammate Aminata Diallo, who was finally indicted in September 2022 for “aggravated violence” And ” conspiracy “.
