Kheira Hamraoui recalled with Les Bleues

Paris SG midfielder Kheira Hamraoui was recalled to the France team on Wednesday, more than a year after her last selection and 15 months after the attack she suffered in Yvelines, coach Corinne Deacon announced.

Hamraoui (33 years old, 39 selections) has gradually found playing time at PSG in recent months and will be in the squad of Les Bleues to face Denmark, Uruguay and Norway between February 15 and 21 during the Tournament of France, a friendly test. She is applying for a place for the World Cup, from July 20 to August 20 in Australia and New Zealand.

The former FC Barcelona player, who has always repeated her desire to find the selection, has lived the last 15 months with twists and turns, since the violent attack she suffered, in November 2021, in Chatou (Yvelines), with blows of iron bars.

Goalkeeper Manon Heil and defender Maëlle Lakrar will discover the France team, while Sandy Baltimore and goalkeeper Constance Picaud will find her.
