WASHINGTON - Former Georgetown women’s soccer player Daphne Corboz (C’15) has been called into France’s Women’s National Team camp by head coach Corinne Diacre. The call up for Corboz is her first into the French senior team, as she replaces the injured Sandie Toletti on the roster while France prepares for a Saturday game against Italy.
Corboz, currently on loan with French club FC Fleury 91, was born to French parents and holds dual-citizenship with the United States and France. The Greenbrook, N.J. native played in her first National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season for Sky Blue FC in 2017. She made 12 starts over 19 appearances, recording one goal and a team-leading five assists. Prior to joining Sky Blue FC, Corboz spent two seasons with Manchester City of the FA Women’s Super League.
Corboz, a two-time All-American, concluded her Georgetown career as the top scorer in program history with 134 points. Corboz is the all-time leader in goals scored with 47 and ranks third all-time in assists with 40.
Corboz was named the BIG EAST Conference's Midfielder of the Year and the league's Offensive Player of the Year in 2014, the first time one player has won both awards in the same season. In addition, she was a unanimous selection to the All-BIG EAST First Team.
The senior led Georgetown in scoring with 42 points, scoring a team-high 12 goals and registering a team-high 18 assists. Her 18 assists broke the school single-season record of 13, which she set as a junior in 2013. In scoring 42 points, she fell two points off the single-season record of 44 points, which she set as a sophomore in 2012.
She was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year in 2013 and led the team with 27 points. Corboz, who was also a unanimous All-BIG EAST First Team selection, scored seven goals and had 13 assists despite missing the first five games of the season. As a sophomore, Corboz was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 and was a First Team All-American.
“This is obviously very exciting news for Daphne and something she really deserves,” said Georgetown Head Coach Dave Nolan. “In a relatively short time in France, she has made a strong impression with her play and everybody here is very excited for her. Hopefully she can build on this camp and go make her full debut very soon.”
Corboz is the first former player to be called into a senior national team camp since Emily Menges (C’14) was called up into the United States senior camp in 2016. This is Corboz’s first call up to the French team having played in the country for only half the season.
