FULL TIME – Cote D’Ivoire 2-3 Thailand.
Thailand get the historic win. BUT WHAT A GAME!!!
90+7 mins – HOW HOW CLOSE CAN YOU GET!!!!!
Nehri has a shot saved into the path of Nguessan, but she can’t get the required contact and it goes into Boonsing’s grateful arms.
90+7 mins – THAILAND SUB
Daru Chanplook replaces Natthakarn Chinwong. Thailand down to 10 as Khyeanpet is down.
Jessica Aby gets booked for a late challenge.
90+2 mins – CLOSE
They hit the woodwork again! The sets up for Christine Lohoues but her shot smashes off the crossbar!
88 mins – GOAL COTE D’IVOIRE 2-3 Thailand (Josee Nahi)
What a goal, and what a game. Josee Nahi wins the ball, and then runs and runs and runs and then calmly slots it in the bottom left-corner. Can they complete a comeback???
A good Cote D’Ivoire move once again ends in frustration, this time Josee Nahi shoots tamely wide.
Thongsombut is in a great position, but before she can shoot she is tackled brilliantly by Djelika Coulibaly.
81 mins – COTE D’IVOIRE SUB
16 year old Jessica Aby replaces Guehai.
Cote D’Ivorie kept a series of dangerous balls into the box, but they can’t pick anyone out.
75 mins – GOAL Cote D’Ivoire 1-3 THAILAND (Chawong)
A long ball is played overe the Ivorian defence to Thongsombut, but Thiamale stupidly comes towards it. With the keeper stranded, Thongsombut chipped the ball over the keeper into the six yard area, and despite three defenders, it is Chawong who is there to head the ball over the line. Shocking defending.
73 mins – THAILAND SUB
Thanatta Chawong replaces Orathai Srimanee.
Nehry breaks into the box, but the ball never falls for her.
Bad news for Thailand as Srimanee has to go off with cramp. They are down to 10 players.
Cote D’Ivoire have a free-kick from 20 yards in a central position, due to Chinwong’s foul on Nguessan. Nehry dummies, leaving it to Guehai whose curling effort is just kept out by Boonsing’s parry low down. They are on top now.
55 mins – CLOSE
Cote D’Ivoire hit the woodwork again. Elloh picked out Nguessan, who steps inside the challenge before her 10 yard shot smashed off the crossbar. And then, Elloh picked out Nguessan again, this time her header was cleared off the line by Srangthaisong.
First chance from Christine Lohoues, but here shot was always going wide of Boomsing’s goal.
SECOND HALF KICKS-OFF
Cote D’Ivoire gets the second half underway.
HALF-TIME SUB Cote D’Ivoire
Rebecca Elloh replaces Rita Akaffou.
HALF-TIME Cote D’Ivoire 1-2 Thailand
Cote D’Ivoire had taken the lead thanks to Nguessan’s strike, but two goals from Srimanee mean Thailand are in front.
45+2 mins GOAL Cote D’Ivoire 1-2 THAILAND (Srimanee)
Goal-line technology is needed again! Thongsombut’s wonderful cross picks out Srimanee, whose header hits the underside of the crossbar and just bounces over the line, with goal-line technology is required. Thailand deserve this.
45+1 mins – CLOSE
Cote D’Ivoire should be in front. At the byline, Nguessan cuts back across the six-yard box to the unmarked Nehry, who somehow hits the post.
43 mins – THAILAND SUB
Rattikan Thongsombut replaces Nisa Romyen.
Josee Nahi takes advantage of Srangthaisong’s error and runs towards goal. She breaks into the box, but the ball takes a deflection to Nrehey, but she blasts the ball way over.
Cote D’Ivoire cause trouble with another corner, and it falls to Tchetche whose shot is an easy save.
34 mins – COTE D’IVOIRE SUB
Josee Nahi prelcaes Binta Diakite.
30 mins – CLOSE
Thailand nearly get a second. Srimanee’s 20 yard shot is parried by Thiamale towards Romyen, who under pressure, sidefoots her shot onto the post.
26 mins – GOAL Cote D’Ivoire 1-1 Thailand (Srimanee)
Thailand equalise! A long ball up to the left catches the defence out, and Maijaren crosses the ball back across goal where Srimanee converts with an acrobatic volley. Great way to score your first World Cup goa.
Lovely interplay from Diakite and Tchetche down the left bypassing the Thai right-back but the cross is poor.
A brilliant corner form Maijaren is well claimed by Thiamale ahead of strong pressure from Sritala.
Thailand have a corner, which Maijaren’s ball picks out Sritala but she can’t get enough on the ball with her header. Cote D’Ivoire launch a counter attack, but Thailand recover.
More nerves from the Thai keeper. A long ball is played up to Nrehy, Boonsing tries to win it but the Ivorian steals the ball. She tries to shoot, but Thailand have defenders back to clear.
4 mins GOAL Cote D’Ivoire 1-0 Thailand (Nguessan)
Cote D’Ivoire take the lead! Their corner is only partially punche dclear by Boonsing. Lohoues plays the ball back in, which causes mayhem especially from Nrehy’s challenge, and Ange Nguessan is there to hook the ball over the line. Great start!
Thailand have the first chance, but Romyen’s long range deflected effort is easy for the keeper.
Thailand start the game. These teams have never met before.
Cote D’Ivoire: Thiamale, Kacou, Fatou Coulibaly, Djelika Coulibaly, Tchetche, Lohoues, Guehai, Akaffou, Nguessan, Nrehy, Binta Diakite.
Thailand: Boonsing, Phetwiset, Sritala, Chinwong, Srangthaisong, Khueanpet, Intamee, Sung-Ngoen, Srimanee, Maijarern, Romyen.
