Final thoughts

France’s win against Greece in the final match of their qualifying campaign highlights the team’s need for rest after a long 11-month season. With some of the players also intending to play in both the tournament in Germany and the Olympics next year, the French squad must focus on finding the right balance of rest and training to perform at their best level.
