L’Équipe report this evening that the French FA’s executive committee are set for a board meeting tomorrow, during which they will make Hervé Renard’s appointment as Women’s national team manager official.
Earlier today, the double AFCON winner had announced his resignation from his role as Saudi Arabia manager, a post he held from 2019 and was tied to until 2027, in the wake of his team’s impressive win over eventual champions Argentina at the World Cup last autumn. He will now replace Corinne Diacre, who was dismissed amid a player exodus in protest at her management, with just months to go until the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand this summer.
Renard is expected to be presented to the media as France manager at a press conference on Friday, at which point he will also unveil his squad ahead of the upcoming international break, during which Les Bleues will take on Colombia and Canada for their final games before the World Cup.
