Gilles Eyquem
The players showed a lot of courage and did exactly what we asked of them. We were very solid; we had a top-class defence. It was a great pleasure to win the tournament because the girls put in a lot of effort to achieve it. It was a great victory for the team and for the group as a whole, so I have to thank my staff for doing a great job.
