Game over. Boulleau plays Le Sommer into the box who uses her strength to hold off a challenge and break to the byline, she cuts back across the six-yard box to Delie who is left with a simple finish at the near post.

47 mins

Good play for Lee Geummin gives Cho Sohyun space, but her long distance shot is wasteful.

South Korea have a corner. Jeon’s delivery is okay, Bouhaddi comes but hesitates and lets it run out for a throw. South Korea need to gamble on their set pieces.

Henry’s long pass is delightful and picks out Thomis in the box, she cuts in to the left to make room, but she shoots wide with her left foot. Poor contact.

25 mins

France gets down the right, but Thomis’ cross is caught by Kim Jungmi.

24 mins

South Korea have a free-kick, 35 yards from goal. Jeon’s delivery is spilled by Bouhaddi under no pressure, and Renard is there to clear and save her keeper.

23 mins

Nearly six minutes later, Kim Jungmi is patched up and ready to continue.

17 mins

Necib floats a free-kick into the box, Renard gets a weak header which Kim Jungmi just clears through a crowd of players. The keeper is down in pain from the challenge, and it looks like she has a black eye. Looks like she was elbowed by her own player Park Ensun.

13 mins

Better from South Korea, with Park Ensun shooting from outside the box after a clever build-up, but it goes over.

9 mins

An ambitious restart. Park Ensun shoots from the half-way line, but it was never going to worry Bouhaddi. It was more of a pass than a shot.

France football-38 mins – GOAL FRANCE 2-0 South Korea (Elodie Thomis)

France strike again. Lovely one-two between Thomis and Le Sommer sees Thomis break into the box and she fires the ball past the keeper from close distance. Game over?

8 mins

South Korea play a free-kick quick down the right, Kang’s cross is a beautiful one but Bouhaddi punches clear ahead of Park Eunsun

France football-34 mins – GOAL FRANCE 1-0 South Korea (Marie Laure Delie)

What a start. A lovely incisive passing move down the left sees Bolleau break into the box, she passes to Abily who returns the favour to allow the left-back to cut the ball back to Delie, all first time passes.. She makes weak contact with her shot, and the ball just goes in at the bottom-right corner.

2 mins

Thomis puts a dangerous ball into the box, but South Korea just about clear.


The game gets underway. France will feel at home in the French-speaking Montreal.


South Korea had never won a World Cup point until they drew with Costa Rica. They had never won a World Cup game until they beat Spain. They had never reached the knockout round at the World Cup. Can they do another first, or will France continue on their path to the final?
