For Toupane, the defeat against Japan is "rich in lessons"

Jean-Aimé Toupane, the coach of the France team beaten by Japan in a preparation match for the World Cup on Sunday (59-69), confided his feelings to the daily L'Equipe: "It was difficult to keep the tempo, we didn't always know how to play differently. We've always said that you shouldn't play on a single speed, that you have to bring the ball under it from time to time. It was a good test, to see that we are able to respond to the challenge. We lost 18 balls because we weren't clear. It's a game rich in lessons (...) We lose ten points but it was played with few things. We will meet shortly and move on the list.”
