At this rate, Hervé Renard may have a hard time composing a high-level attacking line for the next Women's World Cup, which will begin in two months in Australia and New Zealand. While big question marks surround the presence of Parisiennes Kadidiatou Diani and (especially) Marie-Antoinette Katoto, injured for a long time, the new coach of the Blues will have to do without the World Cup of Delphine Cascarino.

Injured at the end of the match, Sunday at the Parc des Princes during the D1 clash against Paris Saint-Germain (0-1), the Lyon striker underwent examinations Wednesday that revealed "a partial rupture of the right anterior common ligament of the knee, as well as mobility and laxity requiring reconstructive surgery," as explained in the statement published on Thursday by Olympique Lyonnais.

This is a huge blow for the 26-year-old, a sure value of the French attack for several seasons, and who will be "absent from the field for several months" after her operation.
