The France team reacts against Brazil in the League of Nations

For its second match of the third stage of the League of Nations, played in Japan, France came to the end of Brazil, this Friday in Osaka (25-21, 25-22, 25-21). Never in trouble in the first set, Earvin Ngapeth’s teammates (14 points) had to tighten the game at the end of the second set and go up a handicap of minus four points (13-17) to make the break in this part.

Defeated by Brazil in their last two confrontations, in the semi-finals of the 2021 Nations League and at the Olympic Games in chickens, the Blues finished the job in the third act, on a last saving attack from Jean Patry (19 points ).

Before facing Argentina on Saturday and Australia on Sunday, the Tricolores are reassured the day after a defeat against the United States. As a reminder, they are already guaranteed to participate in the 8-a-side final, scheduled in Italy from July 20 to 24.

The meetings of the France team can be followed live on L’Equipe live.
