Loïc Lambert’s men are still in the preparation phase and travelled to Villefranche sur Cher on Wednesday evening to play against the Berrichonne de Châteauroux’s reserve team, led by a former Blois player, Sébastien DUBROCA.
A friendly match in exceptional temperatures (38° at the start of the match) enabled the two trainers to try out various players. Blois opened the score early on (6th min) but the team from Berry equalised after a free kick in the final 15 minutes of the game.
Among the crowd, Pascal LAFLEURIEL (the former Blois coach) was just back from the CAN, where the Benin team for whom he was the video assistant, surprised everyone by reaching the quarter finals.
Well done to the Villefranche sur Cher for the way they organised the event.
