The new coach of the French women’s team will have to be a passer for Kadidiatou Diani, injured in the shoulder with PSG.
Herve Renard is coach of the France team for a few hours, but it didn’t take long before he recorded his first real blow. For his debut, the new boss of the blues will have to do without one of the executives of this group, Kadidiatou Diani.
The 27-year-old striker, who has 82 caps for 22 goals, was injured on Thursday evening with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. After scoring the only but of his team in Wolfsburg (1-1), Diani injured her shoulder and suffered a broken collarbone, which makes her package inevitable for the next gathering of Les Bleues.
Clavicle fracture for Kadidiatou Diani. Out injured tonight, the Parisian striker will not be in Hervé Renard’s first list. #PSG

Hervé Renard made his first list this Friday, at 12 p.m., before the match against Colombia in Clermont-Ferrand (April 7) and against Canada, Olympic champion, at Le Mans (April 11). Corinne Deacon’s successor will therefore have to do without Kadiatou Diani, the top scorer in the French championship with 17 goals, as well as Marie-Antoinette Katoto, who has still not returned to competition after her serious knee injury.
As a reminder, Diani and Katoto were part, with captain Wendie Renard, of the players who had my international career on hold to demand a change at the head of Les Bleues. Their demands were heard with the arrival of Hervé Renard and his staff, but the two PSG players will miss the start of the adventure.
