WHAT YOU MAY HAVE MISSED BETWEEN LAST NIGHT AND THIS MORNING
1. Football – Euro 2022: Spectacle and the head of group C for the Netherlands
After a meeting as twirling as it was indecisive, the Netherlands managed to overcome Portugal in their second pool match (3-2). Lyonnaises Damaris Egurrola and Danielle van de Donk scored to allow the Oranje to take the lead in Group C. A little earlier in the evening, Sweden won against Switzerland thanks to Fridolina Rolfö and Hanna Bennison ( 2-1). But nothing is decided yet.

2. Football – Friendly match: Successful first for Igor Tudor
Olympique de Marseille won its first friendly match of the 2022-2023 season against Marignane-Gignac (4-1) thanks to a hat-trick from Bamba Dieng and a goal from Cédric Bakambu. Facing this formation of National 2, Igor Tudor tested a central defense at three with in particular the new recruit Isaak Touré who has already impressed. A (very) good omen for the rest of the events.

Soccer – Friendly Match: For its first pre-season match, FC Barcelona was held in check by the Olot club, which plays in… fourth division (1-1). While Aubameyang scored, Franck Kessié played his first minutes in the Blaugrana jersey. A result that works.

THE PODCAST NOT TO BE MISSED
On July 16, 1978, Michel Pollentier achieved a double masterstroke on the prestigious slopes of Alpe-d’Huez: winner of the stage, the Belgian also put on the yellow jersey. He will never wear it. A few hours later, unmasked, ashamed and ridiculous, Pollentier was excluded from the Tour de France like dirt. Good listening !
NEWS FROM OUR BLUES AT THE EURO
