We managed well, when we have 45,000 people singing La Marseillaise, we can only transcend. We have used the fans to make a good start. In World Cup, I have never scored.

[Lyon and France defender Wendie Renard has appealed for help after losing a trophy for being named in FIFA’s team of the year on a train] Yesterday, I took the Paris-Lyon train at 9:56am (non-stop) and I arrived at 12:00 at Part-Dieu station [in Lyon].

The reception desk handed me the suitcase, but The Best trophy was no longer inside. For my part, I did what I had to.
