Selma Bacha injury and stretcher, Herve Renard “wary” against Australia

Selma Bacha injury and stretcher, Herve Renard “wary” against Australia

An indispensable defender or winger in the Blues game, he was taken off on a stretcher in the dying seconds of the Blues’ last warm-up game before the World Cup (July 20 – August 20) against Australia. Slow motion footage clearly showed Lyonnais twisting his left ankle. Bacha immediately went to hospital in Melbourne for X-rays, which we’ve learned from a source close to the Blues revealed no fracture. But an MRI will be needed on Saturday to learn more about his unavailability.

“I went to see her and we were all with her. Her ankle has changed, we hope it’s not too serious. It’s the worst news of the evening,” said Herve Renard after the match, which lost 1-0. “We have to, don’t rush, be patient and confident,” the coach said.

A central part of the Bleues system as she can play in defence, midfield or attack, the promising OL player would be a huge loss for France in a package event. Les Bleus have already lost several of their key assets for this World Cup: attackers Marie-Antoinette Gatoto and Delphine Cascarino and midfielder Amantine Henry. Midfielder Orion Jean-Francois was also lost during the build-up.


The 22-year-old, who left Marvel Stadium in tears, quickly found his usual smile in the locker room despite his anxiety, his teammates said. “His morale is good, honestly, I was surprised,” midfielder Kenza Daly said. “I was expecting to see her very badly, and in the end it reassured me a little.”

Striker Kadidiatou Diani confirmed his partner was “smiling”. “It’s true that it’s an untimely injury,” added the Parisian, however. In a more remote scenario of a package, the staff would have the opportunity to replace the player between July 23 (12pm) and the day before the World Cup match against Jamaica in Sydney.
