France Thrash Korea In World Cup Opener

Wendie Renard scored two headers as France opened the Women’s World Cup with a one-sided 4-0 defeat of South Korea.

Eugenie Le Sommer’s 11th goal in her last 11 appearances for France in all competitions gave the tournament hosts an early lead in Paris.

Before half-time a pair of towering Renard headers made it 3-0 to Corinne Diacre’s side, who are among the favourites to win the tournament, allowing them to ease off after the interval.

But with six minutes to go France wrapped things up in superb style, Amandine Henry scoring from outside the penalty area to send a strong message to their World Cup rivals.
