ENGLAND – FRANCE. After a crazy rugby match, finished after two overtimes, the blues lost to the English by a score of 22 to 19. XV de la Rose therefore won the Autumn Nations Cup against a very young and very inexperienced French team. Find the summary of the meeting.
17:40 – A victory at Twickenham? France has to wait
France was close by but had to wait. The Blues will have been heroic but have failed to break the series that is unfavorable to them. France’s XV has not beaten England at home since 2007 … at the time of Chabal and co!
17:30 – Galthié: “Am I proud? I’m divided”
It’s a Fabien Galthié of seriousness who came to France Television’s microphone after this match. “The match is played on decision, he regretted. It is very frustrating. But I hope we liked our supporters.” For the coach of France XV, these young blues have not achieved an achievement but “an achievement”. “Am I proud? I’m divided,” he admitted.
17:20 – Woki: “We wanted to show that there was no B-team but only a group”
Asked after the meeting, Cameron Woki hardly hid his great disappointment despite some pride. “It’s the French force. We just wanted to show that there was only one group, no France B or a second team. Of course there is disappointment but we can lose pride in ourselves,” the French relativized at the microphone in France 2.
17:07 – Farrell scores, England wins!
France is penalized in an Itoje competition. Far outside the center on the left, Farrell is not missing this time! 3 points for England! The match was therefore won by the English after a completely crazy match! Bravo English but above all bravo to these young blues! England win 22-19!
17:05 – French scrum sanctioned
After the kick-off, a scrum is ordered by the referee after a very dubious forward from Macalou. Scrum is sanctioned by the referee who lets the English start attacking again.
17:01 – The first overtime ended
There you have it, 10 minutes have passed. A break is whistled after a good defense by Raka who sends an Englishman in contact. We are going for a new extension soon. The French will be able to start this second phase of the extension. This match is crazy.
16:55 – The French attack was punished
Angry sin !! In an offensive phase of the French game, the blues beat the English defense and hoped that Jones’ men were guilty. But in the end it is the blues that are punished. Too bad! It’s starting again! What a thrill! What a stress!
16:51 – Farrell misses the post!
UNBELIEVABLE! WHAT A CRAZY MATCH! He was facing the posts! Farrell, after a foul by Macalou had the opportunity to win England! It was completely in his strings but he is completely missing !!! The ball bounces off the post. At 1 millimeter the balloon returned !! Unbelievable !!
16:50 – It’s time for extra time!
Come on, everything’s playing now! Extension looks like the golden goal in football. LET’S GO !!!
16:48 – The first team to score wins!
This is the bet: The first team to get the least points wins the match and thus the tournament! English will get involved!
16:42 – English test 30 seconds from the end! Make room for extra time!
AYE AYE AYE !!!!! The English subsequently played wonderfully! After a touch, the English created a maul and spun into the goal to flatten! Behind, 20 meters from the posts, Farrell equalizes! 19 everywhere! Make room for extra time !! How difficult for the Blues!
16:38 – Post back for Carbonel under the whistles!
Finally a concrete offensive phase for the Blues! Raka lit a fuse but was taken back by the English. The judge sees that this does not benefit the Blues and constitutes an English error. Very eccentric on the right, Carbonel tries its luck along with the whistles from around 2000 English present. And it passes with the help of the right post! COME ON !!! IT’S REMAINING 3 MINUTES !!!!
16:36 – England respond immediately
France is once again about to break down but Villière is solid in defense! Blues is still sanctioned by arbitration that corresponds to a fault upstream. In front of the post, Farrell, 25 meters in front of the posts, can not miss. 12 to 16 for the Blues!
16:33 – 3 more points for France !!
Magnificent Gabin Villière! In a French offensive phase, the French blocked the two Englishmen who could not get the ball out! England is sanctioned. The rear is Carbonel exactly even if it foams the post! Three more points!
16:30 – Imperial French defense
The French no longer see the light of day offensively. The Blues never came close to the 22 English during this second period. But they can rely on a formidable defense. The English do not pass and some balloons are stolen at the right time for the Blues! Again immediately on a perfect scratch!
