French teams for Belgium and Ireland matches
16 Mar 2009 14:50
 

French Coach Scott Goodheart has selected 22 players to play in three matches against Belgium and Ireland over the next two weeks.

“These three matches, as well as the two recent Scotland games, are an important opportunity for the players to show their potential, and also for the coaching staff to finalise our focus for 2009,” he said.

A total of 22 players will be used for the two series, including two players currently outside the Senior Squad, being U21 players Guillaume Samson and Lucas Sevestre.   Both players were impressive in matches against Scotland, and both have earned another opportunity for the France senior team.

The series also sees the return of Nicolas Monnier, the 30 year old veteran playing in his first matches for France since the 2008 Olympic Qualifier tournament in March 2008.

‘We are evolving as a team, and the emergence in confidence and skill of some of the younger players in the group has been very exciting.  This is also motivating the more experienced players to keep improving.  I hope this continues into and beyond these games,” Goodheart said.
