This Friday 7th June, les Bleues played for their first match of the World Cup against South Korea (4-0), with a double for Wendy Renard.

The long-awaited party has started well. This Friday 7th June 2019, the French team beat South Korea (4-0) in the opening match of the 2019 World Cup, held at home.

Eugénie Le Sommer ideally launched the match at Parc des Princes opening the scoring in the 9th minute.

The French then took control of the game and largely dominated this first half.

At the 27th, a superb volley Griedge Mbock finished in the opposing cage. But the goal was denied for offside by the VAR.

Wendy Renard, one of the mainstays of the French team, scored no less than two goals from the top of his 1m87.

One at the 35th:

The second in stoppage time:

The second half was much less intensive, with few offensive actions on the part of the French and still as little intensity from the Koreans, despite a small fright in the 77th.

At the 85th, captain Amandine Henry woke the Parc des Princes, with a nice shot in the skylight and definitely extinguished the hopes of the opponents.

Les Bleues will then face Norway and Nigeria.
