As the Women’s World Cup begins in less than two months, Hervé Renard is feeling the pinch after Delphine Cascarino’s package.
The bad news is linked for Hervé Renard and the France team. While Marie-Antoinette Katoto, Griedge Mbock and Amandine Henry are more than uncertain for the World Cup to be held from July 23 in Australia and New Zealand, a sizeable package is already in place: Delphine Cascarino will not be on the adventure at the other end of the world.
The images of his injury on Sunday during the clash between PSG and OL raised fears of the worst. And as feared, the Rhone winger is on the flank for many months. The examinations carried out on Tuesday revealed “a partial rupture of the right anterior cruciate ligament as well as mobility and laxity requiring corrective surgery”, announced the Rhone club. His absence at the World Cup is acquired.
“Unfortunately, I will not be able to participate in the World Cup this summer with my teammates”, confirmed the player in a message on social networks. The Lyonnaise has received many messages of support from her teammates or from Philippe Diallo, the interim president of the Federation. Hervé Renard also reacted.
“It is a great sadness for her and for the France team. We will do everything to make her very proud of us. We will miss her”, he told L’Equipe. While he must announce his (expanded) list for the World Cup on June 6, the tricolor coach is unlucky.
