On Saturday, February 1st in the afternoon, under the watchful eye of the International Center of European Football residents, the Thonon-Evian-Grand-Genève FC women’s team played against the European champion, Olympique Lyonnais.

The European champion won 2-0, but our TEGG FC women team showed their eagerness to compete throughout the match against such a powerful opponent. They can be very proud of their game, their result and aggressiveness.

A Memorable Moment for ICEF Residents

The ‘feminine’ team definitely set the highest standard for all residents who were delighted to be involved in such high level competition.

It was a memorable moment for the entire staff and players at the center and the club and a great learning opportunity for our ICEF residents. Not to mention, their encounter with Amandine Henry, Olympique Lyonnais player and Captain of the French National Team.
