Valérie Gauvin, winning return

Sanctioned by Corinne Diacre after training delays, French forward Valérie Gauvin started on the bench against Korea in the opening match. This Thursday against Norway, the player from Montpellier found her place among the eleven lights beginning the game. A paying choice since Gauvin opened the scoring at the very beginning of the second half, his first goal in the World Cup; our first “phew” of relief since the beginning of the match!

The incredible mistake of Renard

The unthinkable rescue of the Parisian Choupo-Moting in Ligue 1 had made the rounds of social networks last April, but in the radius of improbable gestures, the goal against his camp Wendie Renard holds a place of choice.

Author of a double against the Republic of Korea, the giant Lyon has almost lost two valuable points to his team. Following a Norwegian center and while the Blue lead only one goal, the ball goes in front of the cage of Sarah Bouhaddi without it presents any danger. Then, with an improbable bad habit, Wendie Renard pushes the leather in her own goal of a foot flat insured. Unfortunately, no Choupo-Moting to catch up this time …

The VAR in savior

A blunder of no consequence because the second turn of the match finally arrives a few minutes later. In favor of France this one. A duel in the Norwegian surface, the French Marion Torrent is victim of an ugly sole on the knee from an opponent. If the German referee does not flinch on the spot, it is warned by his assistants that violent contact took place between the two players.

Neither one nor two, the referee runs towards his control screen to review the action in slow motion. After a few sultry seconds of waiting for the supporters tricolor, she finally refers to the penalty spot. An offering converted by Eugénie le Sommer who does not tremble when registering his 76th goal in selection and thus give the victory to the Blue. The Lyonnaise is more than five lengths from the historic record of selection goals held by some Marinette Pichon.

Blue (almost) qualified

The victory earlier in the day against Nigeria (2-0) in the other match of group A delayed somewhat the qualification of the Team of France. But nothing to worry about. With six points on the clock, Corinne Deacon’s daughters are almost guaranteed to reach the knockout stages of the FIFA Women’s World Cup ™, and with the group’s top spot! So that France does not get out of her hen, it should be bowed next Monday against Nigeria and that at the same time, Norway wins against Korea. A disaster scenario that is very unlikely to happen, especially when we know that the Blues overwhelmed the Nigerians 8-0 during their last confrontation in April 2018!

If everything goes without a hitch, Team France will play for the third time in its history a World Cup finals after 2011 and 2015. In the eighth finals, the Blue should find an opponent largely in their ropes before most likely face the United States, defending world champions, in the quarter-finals. Americans who marked their mark the beginning of the competition by winning Tuesday against Thailand on the historic score of 13-0. French women are prevented.
