Women’s Euro 2022 – Melvin Mallard’s performance against Iceland (1-1), big sighs for Deacon

From our special correspondent in Rotherham,

The pre-match match was on his picture: frustrating. After exchanging a few passes with her best friend Selma Pasha, Melvin Mallard isolated herself near the center circle in order to…reconcile. During this time, incumbents on the side gathered to physically pressure them with the coach of the group. But Mallard was missing.

With a big smile, she ended up joining the forces, laughing her head out in the air. Once the warm-up was over, she had the right to find her ball for an attempt in front of goal. Turning to her left foot, she sent a brilliant brush-brushing shot into the skylight before making her way to the locker room. It was ready. seen.

From her first ball, she tried her luck. His creed in this game. In the second I felt Clara Mathieu behind her. His heels full of spontaneity put blue in the right direction. The rest, she tells it. “I’m a player who loves fusion and saw this goalexplained in a press conference. I give Clara a discount and she feels like I’m asking for it again deeply.

Because this match against Iceland was like no other for her. In the absence of Marie Antoinette Catuto, to whom she devoted her goal, all eyes were on her. With the basic question: does it have the right level for this kind of competition? The answer is a sigh of relief to Corinne Deacon. Because Mallard won his bet. And because the blues were able to evacuate this black cloud that started to form above their heads.

While his press conference the day before seemed to have named Olimata Sarr as a natural alternative to MAK, it was finally Mallard who was chosen by Deacon. “You have to decipher the linesChief Blue laughed with reporters who questioned her about this reversal. Melvin is a young woman, she has shown great things in training. It never disappoints, especially tonight. I scored that goal that almost gave us the win. She is a talented young player who does not count and gives much. I wanted to return the favorWhen she left, it was also a long hug that the coach held for her player.

The Blues chief was undoubtedly afraid: Mallard was trying to bridge a gap. She exaggerates trying to get into Kattuto’s belts. It ended up playing against nature. It was just the opposite. Because the OL player didn’t see the problem that way. “The coach trusted me, and I said to myself ‘It’s up to me to play football’She explained her state of mind before the match. We’re in a big competition, we had to have fun, it worked out really well, and that’s a good thing“.

She is a very good player and has improved a lot. She has become my little sister, and I love her very much and hope she continues that way because she has everything for her.

Among the players, no one suspected Mallard. Because everyone adores a woman, her constant smile and regular positive energy.
