By correcting Italy (5-1), Sunday, for its first Euro match, the France team did very well, breaking several records.
Les Bleues did not go into detail on Sunday against Italy. For their first match of the Euro, the daughters of Corinne Deacon have indeed crushed Italy (5-1). A victory all the more impressive as the France team was already leading 5-0 at the break, well helped by Grace Garoyo’s hat-trick.
This success is nothing short of historic. It is indeed the biggest success of the Blue during a Euro and this victory is also the 11e rank in competition, which is a record in the history of the France team. France even became the first team in history to lead by five goals at halftime in a Euro match.
11 – France signed against Italy the biggest victory in their EURO history (5-1). Les Bleues have also won their last 11 competitive matches, equaling the longest winning streak in their history in this type of encounter. Brilliant. #FRAITA #WEURO2022 pic.twitter.com/nGg2zYazDN

It’s a dream night
Author of her first career hat-trick, Grace Garoyo for her part joined Angélique Roujas in the annals of Les Bleues. The former player from La Roche-sur-Yon was until then the only tricolor international to have scored a hat-trick at the Euro. A 25-year-old feat when France dominated Russia (3-1) on July 2, 1997.
The heroine of the match did not hide her pleasure at the end of the meeting. “We only remember the positive. We tried to put our game in place, started the match very well and tried to get chances. And above all, we were efficient, she confided to the microphone of TF1. It’s a dream evening, that’s for sure, especially since I was a little hurt at the start of the preparation, but I’ll come back as I go. Today, I was able to have chances and put them to the bottom. It’s nice to be decisive, to score, but above all to have fun with the teammates.
