"I think we achieved something and I'm proud to have shown France that football can also be played by women, and that's a first victory. I think it will help for the future, but I can't guarantee it," French forward Eugenie Le Sommer said. "To have won over the public is a good thing, but we shouldn't just be satisfied with that."
"The Federation wants to put things into place, which is good, and generating all of this enthusiasm I think will help toward that. There are many things to do and we can't let ourselves get overtaken by other countries," she said. "We must continue to progress, to become professionals, because other countries do that and maybe it's why they're ahead of us."
