And two! Les Bleues won their second game of this Women's World Cup on Wednesday 12 June in Nice against Norway. After a fine start against sad South Koreans (4-0), France overcame a tougher opponent, Norway (2-1) on Wednesday in Nice, despite an own goal from Renard.
After easily defeating the South Koreans (4-0), the Blues are now up against a different calibre opponent, Norway. Norway have been world champions since 1995, but they remain a major nation in women's football. However, she was deprived of her star, Ada Hegerberg, women's Golden Ball in 2019. But the Norwegians have a solid team and have prepared to face the French.
The French finally followed up with a second victory against Norway with a score of 2-1.
A first goal in France's 46th minute by striker Valérie Gauvin, who beat everyone else in the Norwegian penalty area. On 54 minutes, a goal for Norway but shot by Wendie Renard who wanted to put the ball in a corner but sent it... into his own goals! Finally, Eugénie Le Sommer did not shake to score the penalty in the 72nd minute.
With six points in two games, Les Bleues are close to the Round of 16 and a draw against Nigeria will be enough for them to finish top of Group A.
