Renard headers give France a flying start

Scotland defender Jennifer Beattie and winger Claire Emslie in training

South Korea has conceded the first goal in all eight World Cup games it has played.

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino remains confident that the body will sell one million tickets to the showpiece event, as well as reach a global television audience of one billion people.

With seven Champions League winners featuring in Les Bleues' opening World Cup line-up, there was only ever going to be one outcome.

How big of an advantage does France have in the World Cup at home?

"We have 16 matches sold out overall and we have gone way beyond what we hoped for in terms of ticket sales".

Nearly a million tickets have been sold for this World Cup amid hopes that the month-long tournament will be a springboard to helping the women's game really take off.

The much-anticipated opening of the Women's World Cup will take place before France kick off the first match at 8pm BST on Friday, June 7. Via latte under the edge of the shot Eugenié Le Sommer ends up in the goal.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time. Lopez suffered non-life threatening injuries when he was struck in the leg, apparently by the same bullet that hit Ortiz.

Yoon admitted that conceding so many goals in their opener had hurt South Korea's chances of getting through to the knockout stages for the second time after 2015 as one of the four best third-placed teams in the group phase.

"I am from that 1998 generation". Their star player is the midfielder Ji So-yun of Chelsea. That opening game set up a national love affair with a home team that went on to win its first World Cup, and you wonder if the vibe might be similar with this French team moving forward.

All 52 games will be available to watch on free-to-air TV in Ireland as RTE and TG4 will broadcast the games between them.

Renard made amends after 35 minutes, the powerful central defender thumping a header home for her 21st worldwide goal. Heading into the tournament the United States are considered the favorites.

For while their male counterparts remain also-rans internationally, the popularity of the USA has been the financial motor that has driven the women's game. They begin their campaign against unfancied Thailand in Reims next Tuesday.

France, which won the match 4-0, next plays Norway in Group A on Wednesday.
