“It is not simply soccer that may present such feelings”, declared Nicolas Bansard, the president of US Alençon, after the qualification of his proteges towards Le Havre on the finish of the penalty shootout. .

With the scenes of pleasure and jubilation that adopted.

And, it’s this identical train that generated the alternative on Saturday November 19, 2022, at dwelling. Unhappiness and dejection accompanied the elimination of the Greens from the Coupe de France after a “merciless situation”.

One-sided first half

If the beginning of the primary half was a bit sluggish, and the Alençonnais had been put, a bit however actually a bit, at risk, they then took it from the suitable finish and dominated it from head and shoulders.

A grip on the sport which materialized in a bunch of alternatives to open the scoring. However, both for lack of success (6′, 12′, 17′, 33′, 43′), or by the expertise of the Breton goalkeeper (34′, 43′), or by Morbihan solidarity with this ball saved on the road (34′), Vincent Laigneau’s proteges didn’t open the scoring and the beginnings of a painful finish had been rising. What striker Amaury Tessier identified:

We knew we needed to rating rapidly to take cowl and keep away from such a situation. Sadly, we lack success.

Detrimental for the long run.

Rebelote within the second half

Admittedly, at a slower tempo attributable to fatigue and the difficult state of the sector, Hakim El Hamdaoui’s teammates continued to place strain on the opposing cage.

If the alternatives had been fewer, they had been nonetheless clear. And, once more, the Pontivyan goalkeeper nonetheless stood out (51′, 59′, 80′) and when he was crushed, one in all his companions changed him, all the time saving on the purpose line (81′).

A big motion of the tactic adopted by the guests: to hunker down, defend tooth and nail and present solidarity to succeed in the one chance of qualifying.

And, it labored.

Fabrice Péru’s gamers scored their solely 5 pictures on purpose. Sure, however they had been all decisive as a result of they led to the qualification of the Breton formation. Merciless for the Alençonnais who did what was essential with out managing to interrupt the opposing lock.

A tough tablet to swallow

An elimination, subsequently, with a really, very, very bitter style for Amaury Tessier:

We made a little bit of a tough begin the place they put us in a little bit of hazard. Then we have now fifteen minutes of insanity with out having the ability to inform the distinction. We noticed that after we put the ball on the bottom and went rapidly back and forth, we put them at risk.

There have been events, nonetheless.

Sadly, we do not put them on the underside. Me, the primary. It smiled on me three weeks in the past towards Le Havre however not tonight. That is how it’s, and it is laborious. Afterwards, there may be frustration as a result of we didn’t rating, we didn’t take shelter. They gained confidence over the assembly, performed over time. They broke the sport, the rhythm. Then it received more durable and more durable. The terrain was difficult and fatigue didn’t assist. There are additionally, maybe, unhealthy decisions on our half, in addition to an absence of realism. Every part succeeded for us three weeks in the past and tonight we’re taking the backlash. It’s totally laborious.

Remobilize for the championship

The face of unhealthy evenings and the black eye, however how might it’s in any other case. Vincent Laigneau, the tactician of the town of the Dukes, delivered a chilly however reasonable evaluation of the assembly:

In fact there may be disappointment. It is merciless as a result of the script did not prove in our favour. It is powerful each for the membership, which has put in numerous effort, and for the gamers, who’ve given their all and had an ideal run.

Vincent Laigneau

He continues: “We didn’t handle to attain within the first half when it was of high quality. It have to be acknowledged that it was the opposing goalkeeper from Pontivy who was decisive and who made them win this assembly. They’ve been strong round him and he’s making some magic saves. He leaves them within the recreation after we ought to have been 1-0 or 2-0 at halftime. »

Within the second half, we push however we have now much less juice. Perhaps on the finish of the match, Hakim El Hamdoui doesn’t fall alone within the field. It has been judged and I am not going to return on it. I’m disillusioned for the gamers who gave their all however, regardless of every little thing, I congratulate them on their journey. I noticed one other nice group from Alençon who performed effectively like within the earlier rounds. Kudos to them.

Vincent Laigneau

Three weeks in the past, we had been smiling as a result of we had received on penalties. Tonight, we cry and we are going to cry collectively. Now, we’re going to recharge our batteries to start out once more even when it is going to be laborious. And, I feel it is going to be. We are going to make sure that to recuperate, breathe and depart.
