Laura Georges

National team: France

Which player has most inspired you and why? Lilian Thuram. He was a remarkable defender, and he is a great man – very humble.

Which coach has most inspired you? All my coaches have made me progress, but I will mention Gérard Prêcheur and André Merelle.

What is the best advice they've given you? The best advice I got came not from my coach but from my father, who always told me to play with my own qualities and to let go when on the pitch.

Best player you've played with? I have played with many – it's difficult to say.

Toughest opponent? Inka Grings

What are your memories of your first club as a child? With the Under-13s I was asked to train with the boys. I did not want to at first, but I managed to and it was a great experience.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Believe in your skills and work hard.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? I recall a game against Spain at the women's Under-19 European championship. It was an important match with qualification for the [2014 FIFA U-20 Women's] World Cup in Canada at stake. We won and I was player of the match.
