The last Norman survivor in the Coupe de France, QRM (L2) will host Laval (N1) in the 32nd round of the Coupe de France. A team well known to some and which takes advantage of the effectiveness of an attacker passed (too briefly) by two formations of the department.
There is already only one left. Only one Norman club present in the 32nd final. The HAC (L2) and Evreux (N3) having let slip their respective penalty shootout against Chauvigny (N3) and Linas-Montlhéry (N3) last weekend, QRM (L2) is the last regional representative to yet appear in the Coupe de France. Here are three things to know about the upcoming meeting against Laval (N1), which will be scheduled for Saturday 18 or Sunday 19 December.
QRM has three ex-Laval residents
Three players from Bruno Irles’ squad wore the Stade Lavallois jersey in the past more or less close. Three players who arrived this summer on the banks of the Seine: Duckens Nazon (27 years old), Bridge Ndilu (21 years old) and Stéphane Lambese (26 years old). The first, double scorer Saturday in Amilly (5-0), spent a year and a half there, between the beginning of 2015 and June 2016. His departure from Mayenne coincided with his quest for new horizons: thereafter , the attacker went to play in India (Kerala Blasters), in England (Wolverhampton, Coventry, Oldham), in Scotland (St-Mirren) then in Belgium. He therefore did not have the opportunity to play in the Tango with Ndilu (arrived at the training center in the summer of 2016) and Lambese, who only carried out an exercise in “Orange”, in 2018. -2019.
The Laval goleador went through two seinomarins clubs
He is the co-best director (9) of National and remains over four seasons (one in N3, two in N2, one in N1) with ten or more goals scored. Attacker from Stade Lavallois since this summer, Geoffray Durbant (29) continues to maintain his consistency. Which has enough to leave some regrets to the lovers of soccer from the Mariners, who have too little to benefit from the talents of Guadeloupe: a short season in Oissel with Eric Fouda (24 matches of N3, 7 goals) and another at FC Dieppe under the orders of Jean-Guy Wallemme (23 matches of N3, 10 goals). Too bad neither of these two clubs was able to bet more on the former Red Star, who therefore exported his stats to Saint-Maur Lusitanos (N2, 13 goals), Sedan (N2, 15 goals) and Bastia- Borgo (N1, 10 goals), with whom he scored against QRM during the return (1-1) last season.
€ 50,000 up for grabs
If the leaders of QRM could have hoped for substantial ticketing receipts (to be shared with the visiting club) by hosting a Ligue 1 team in Diochon in the 32nd final, it will necessarily be different with the reception of the 6th in National 1. However , the Norman club can hope to get some money into the coffers: in the event of qualification for the next round, € 50,000 in additional endowments will be added to the € 52,500 already received. What could help for example to recruit this winter
