France captain, Wendie Renard, spoke about her new environment saying: “It’s a lovely stadium. The pitch seems fine and a bit softer. That is a good thing for us.
“We’ll get our bearings later on, during training. The most important thing is the quality of the pitch. Here, in England, it’s something that we don’t really think about because all the pitches are amazing.”
