Ludivine Diguelman (born April 15, 1984 in Montpellier ) is a French soccer player . She has played at clubs in her native town virtually throughout her adult career.

Club career

Until shortly after her 15th birthday, Ludivine Diguelman played at Avenir Sportif Gignac , an amateur club west of her hometown. In 1999 she moved to Entente Montpellier Le Crès , whose women's eleven competed in the French first division , the Championnat National 1 A. From the sources used it is not clear with any certainty when it was actually used. However, she became a U-19 national player there in her second season (see below) . When the women's division of the club joined the financially stronger local rivals HSC Montpellier in the summer of 2001 , the midfielder also took this step, and at the MHSC she was finally part of the regular formation of the league team. During the 2002/03 season she was accepted into France's national football team, the Center technique national Fernand-Sastre , also played for its women's team CNFE Clairefontaine in the top division and was also considered for the first time before the start of the season in the French A- National selection.

After twelve months in Clairefontaine, she returned to her “parent club” in Montpellier in 2003, to which she then remained loyal for over a decade. The player, who can also be used in defense , won a total of five national titles with the MHSC, was national champion in 2004 and 2005 and cup winner of France in 2006 , 2007 and 2009 (this time without a final appearance). In addition, Ludivine Diguelman was three more times in a cup final from 2010 to 2012, which she and her teammates ended as a loser.

From 2003 to 2013 inclusive, Diguelman brought it to 213 point games, in which she scored 44 goals. She was also on the pitch in 24 games at Montpellier's three European championships, scoring five goals. At the memorable European Cup course in the 2005/06 season , when the MHSC lost 3-2 in the semi-final second leg against 1. FFC Frankfurt - after a 1-0 win in the first leg in Germany - and missed the final due to the away goals rule , Ludivine Diguelman not only played all ten matches, but had also scored all three goals for Montpellier's women against Frankfurt.

In the summer of 2014, she and her long-time teammates Élodie Ramos and Ophélie Meilleroux joined the second division of FF Nîmes Métropole Gard . Four months later, she suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament , which put her out of action for a long time. At the end of her first season with only four league stakes, she returned with Nîmes in the top division.

In the national team

As a teenager, Ludivine Diguelman took part in two continental tournaments with the French U-19 selection in 2002. At the European Championships in Sweden she was in the starting line-up, which lost the final 3-1 to her German contemporaries, and at the World Cup in Canada, which ended for France after the preliminary round, she was also part of the French squad .

In the summer of the same year, Diguelman made his debut on the occasion of a friendly match against Ukraine in France's senior national team , for which she has played a total of 39 senior internationals since June 2002, the last in September 2009 in a World Cup qualifier against Croatia .

She was used by national coach Élisabeth Loisel mainly as a supplementary player, who did not include the then 19-year-old in France's 2003 World Cup squad , and Loisel's successor Bruno Bini did not consider her between March 2007 and December 2008 at all. In 2009 Bini called Ludivine Diguelman into his final line-up of the Bleues for the European Women's Championship , but did not use them in Finland in any of the four finals.

In the blue national dress she also scored three goals, including the "goal of the day" in the 1-0 win against Norway in 2005 and the French equalizer in 2006 for the 1-1 final score in the World Cup qualifying match against England , which was not enough to win To enable French women to participate in the finals.

In 2015, the now 31-year-old returned to the international stage with a French selection. With the national women's military team, whose coach is Élisabeth Loisel, she takes part in the military world championship in Mungyeong , South Korea, in October of that year , where she scored the 2-1 winner in the opening game against the hosts.
