11:28 p.m. : We feeeeerme! Not without having taken a last look at the news of this evening.
They had been waiting for a trophy for 21 years. In the duel of teams with nicknames of birds, it was the Canaries of FC Nantes who took the best of the Aiglons of Nice in the final of the Coupe de France (1-0). A match played in a great atmosphere, thanks in particular to the 40,000 Canary supporters who made the trip.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon announces his intention to “write a page in the history of France” with the left-wing coalition, Nupes, meeting in Aubervilliers. Here’s what to take away from his speech.
21 cannon shots for a new mandate. Emmanuel Macron’s investiture ceremony took place this morning. Here are the highlights.
“All women, all children, all old people” were evacuated from the besieged Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol, Ukrainian authorities announced.
See you tomorrow at nine o’clock for the rest of this live.
11:24 p.m. : Inevitably, it’s a completely different atmosphere in Nice… (thanks to @kat for reporting this tweet to me).
11:30 p.m. : Fireworks on the Stade de France, rain of green and yellow confetti on the lawn, the evening ends in apotheosis.
11:20 p.m. : We never get tired (unless you are a Nice supporter, perhaps), of these images of communion between Nantes players and their supporters.
11:17 p.m. : Tonight, Nantes is in Atlantic Glory
11:13 p.m. : 🏆 IT’S HISTORICAL! The @FCNantes wins its 4th Coupe de France tonight. What a pleasure ! What pride for Nantes and the people of Nantes! A big congratulations to the club, the players, the staff and all the supporters who carried them to victory #CDF #OGCNFCN #OnEstNantes
11:13 p.m. : The mayor of Nantes Johanna Rolland does not hide her joy on Twitter.
11:12 p.m. : Let’s review the action that leads to the penalty that gives victory to Nantes.
11:12 p.m. : What an atmosphere at the Stade de France! Fans of Nantes go crazy after the victory of the Coupe de France. #FCNOGCN #FCNantes
11:11 p.m. : @kat I’m counting on you to be nice to his two hours of sleep tomorrow morning at nine o’clock 😉 In the meantime, you can try looking for him on this video by Rémy Buisine.
11:11 p.m. : The night of your colleague Raphaël Godet is going to be looooong!
11:06 p.m. : For the record, it is @Huchette who had found the right prognosis! Kudos to her!
11:02 p.m. : As in 1999, Nantes won thanks to a questionable penalty!
11:02 p.m. : One thing is certain, if the matches were played to the fervor of the supporters, there would be no doubt about Nantes’ victory! I still hoped that the match would not remain said this score. We’re going to talk about the refereeing for a long time… Bravo Nantes, I still found them better!
11:04 p.m. : Without this penalty, it was gone for the end of the night 🙂 Nantes did not steal their victory. !!
11:01 p.m. : What can we learn from this final? The people of Nantes dominated the debates, created the biggest chances. However, on the very action of the penalty, the Nice defender cannot withdraw his hand when his arm is shot at close range. A points victory, like a boxing match.
10:58 p.m. : Over the whole match Nantes was better but without panache
10:58 p.m. : The referee is always right. Point. Let’s remember a match of the France team against Portugal at Euro 2000…
10:57 p.m. : Penalty limit but on the whole match, the Nantes deserve the victory.⚽🏆
10:56 p.m. : Deserved victory for the Nantes people….nothing to say..bravo 👍⚽️😀
10:55 p.m. : It’s over at the Stade de France! After 21 years of waiting, Nantes won the Coupe de France at the expense of Nice, on a questionable penalty converted by Ludovic Blas (1-0)!
10:54 p.m. : @Mae75 The number of abstruse penalties whistled (or not whistled) since the start of the season. Clearly, the rule deserves a tweak. Afterwards, the referee is always right…
10:53 p.m. : What a pity that a French Cup final is decided on a disputed penalty. Madame Frapart ruined the party
10:52 p.m. : Nantes took the Rennes of this match without committing any Quimper.
10:51 p.m. : We enter the additional time of this final. Still 1-0 for Nantes.
10:50 p.m. : They were waiting for the Promenade des Aiglons, they will have had Dante’s Inferno…
10:49 p.m. : Maître Aiglon at the top of the ranking,
Held a balloon in its beak.
Little Canary, bluntly,
Asked him casually:
And hi, Mr Olympian,
How strong you are, how European you are!
Without lying, if your defense
Is found in abundance,
You will reach the soft belly.
At these words, the Eaglet went mad;
And to show his irritation,
He opens a wide beak,
dropping the ball.
10:48 p.m. : We were going to write the report of the match to the editorial staff, and @Thirties has arrived.
10:45 p.m. : @Anne These are the flags of the ultras of the Loire Brigade. The black band is a reference to the Breton flag, slips me my comrade Raphaël Godet, all dressed in yellow, from the Stade de France.
10:44 p.m. : Why the green yellow black flag in Nantes?
10:32 p.m. : Nicolas Pallois this evening.
10:33 p.m. : Huge double save by Alban Lafont against Amine Gouiri and Andy Delort, who tried their luck twice at close range, with the help of Andrei Girotto on the goal line. I was just going to tell you all the good things I thought of Nicolas Pallois in Nantes central defense. Still 1-0 for Nantes in this final in the 72nd.
10:30 p.m. : @DoctorLayton I’m from Nord-Pas-de-Calais, I can’t let this septentrionophobic joke pass 🙂
10:29 p.m. : The smoke in the stadium I think it’s to recreate the Nantes weather to have the impression that they are playing at home 😏
10:29 p.m. : @Djack76 To be exact, there are times when controlled experimentation is allowed, but here, clearly, that is not the case. I looked into stadium security at the start of the season, and between the lack of stewards and an unsuitable formation, look no further for security flaws (in addition to the fact that the supporters believe that we remain deaf to their claims of using pyrotechnics).
10:27 p.m. : Are smoke bombs prohibited in stadiums or is it fog? The security worked again….
10:27 p.m. : The Canaries got several chances, in particular by Moses Simon, but sinned in the finish. Let’s hope for them that they won’t have to regret it at the end of the game. 1-0 for Nantes66th.
10:24 p.m. : Just fifty times Nantes could have killed this game!!
10:24 p.m. : #FCNOGCN
1999: Nantes – Sedan (1-0)
2000: Nantes-Calais (2-1)
2022: Nantes – Nice (1-0, 47th)
The first two times, a questionable penalty had tipped the Cup on the canary side. This one will also make people talk (even if there is a hand) and that can be a sign for the FCN…
10:24 p.m. : Each time Nantes have won the Cup, the Canaries have benefited from a questionable penalty (don’t get me started on the one from the final against Calais), remarks a journalist from The voice of the North.
10:20 p.m. : Logically, it’s Nice’s turn to put pressure on the Nantes defense to try to catch up. Watch out for the deadly counterattacks of the Kolo-Muani-Simon duo, the two hurt Lens very badly again last week. Just now, Kolo-Muani, who signed in Frankfurt for next season, reviewed the entire defense of the Aiglons to deposit a marvel of center back in the feet of a partner. 1-0 for Nantes59th.
10:11 p.m. : So just shoot a cannonball at the defender’s hand to get a penalty… We really need to review this rule. The poor Nice couldn’t do anything…
10:10 p.m. : We saw more chances in two minutes than in the whole first period! At the moment, a very pure volley from Pedro Chirivella brushes the goal of Marcin Bulka. A shiver went through the stands of the Stade de France, Nantes almost made the break. 1-0 for Nantes, 50th.
10:08 p.m. : Hard shot from Ludovic Blas in the skylight, and it goes 1-0 for the Canaries at the Stade de France!
10:09 p.m. : Here we go again and entry penalty for Nantes. Barely fifteen seconds of play in the second half! We will talk about the fault, questionable, the Nantes striker pulling on the arm of the defender.
10:05 p.m. : Weak technique, unplayable crosses, but intensity, but hey, when we saw the Champions League matches this week, we see the difference with the league1
10:05 p.m. : does not agree with the general enthusiasm. I will nuance a tad by saying that I expected more from Real Madrid-Manchester City than from this Nice-Nantes 😉
10:04 p.m. : @Sylvain “Oh, Nice, who thinks wrong“.
10:03 p.m. : I went flying under other skies, and when I come back, what do I see? It cackles in the nesting boxes, but not the slightest egg in the boxes! Oh, Nice, who thinks wrong? Oh, Nantes, are you buttered?
10:02 p.m. : Rather nice this match.. Commitment and a bit above for Nantes..
