Team France 2016 Welcome the World

Homeless World Cup 2016, George Square, Glasgow, Scotland - 12 July 2016

While France have attended the Homeless World Cup since 2004, this was only the second year the European nation sent a women’s squad. They entered the tournament ranked 13th – and finished in the same position.

“I think it’s the best thing and that it’s important for countries to meet,” said player Marion Petit. “It’s great, really great for people who come from the same backgrounds to meet like this, especially people who don’t get the chance to play often and who don’t have a tournament to participate in, to have been able to meet people from all over the world.

“This has been an amazing experience,”
