Monaco – San Die

5pm this Saturday.

The first, the centre-forward, played for Swedish club Hylte/Halmstad last season and soon established himself in the Déodatienne team. “She has to adapt to the elite, but she’s a dominant center and is getting more comfortable with blocking efficiency,” her coach Manu Dumortier analyzed. “It’s starting to play a big role in our defense system.

Regardless, Jacqui Armer has been able to adapt well to her new environment: “Playing in the US and then coming to Europe was a challenge because it’s a different style of play and it’s hard to adapt. I feel really good on the team, It’s always been popular. We all get along very well, which makes it easier to fight together on the pitch. »

We try to optimize his athletic potential and stabilize his reception. It can make a bigger impact”, Manu Dumortier judge. For her part, Azariah Stahl is also aware of her room for improvement.
