France will offer women’s national team coach Corinne Diacre a contract extension following their run to the Euro 2022 semi-finals, French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet has confirmed.
Le Graet told reporters Diacre would be offered a two-year extension, expressing his satisfaction with the team’s performance at the tournament in England despite their 2-1 semi-final defeat to Germany on Wednesday.
Le Graet said the objective of a last-four finish had been achieved and that the French team had “shown a beautiful image of women’s football at the top level of the game”.
“This tournament has shown that we have a real team, consistent and improving. There was a good mix between old and young. TV ratings were also good. It shows that the public interest is there,” he told several French media outlets.
