Canada - France : 0-4
The Bleues of Bruno Bini pulled off an excellent performance thrashing Canada 4-0, on Thursday in Bochum. After a first success against Nigeria (1-0), France have virtually qualified for the quarter finals of the World Cup in Germany. Only a victory for Nigeria against Germany at 20h45 could upset the French women.
At kick-off, 5 OL players were in the starting line-up: Laura Georges, Sabrina Viguier, Sonia Bompastor, Louisa Nécib and Camille Abily. It was the Juvisy player Gaëtane Thiney who opened the scoring following a shot from Elise Bussaglia (1-0, 24'). A goal spoiled by an offside position which confirmed the French domination. Returning for the second half, Thiney struck again with an excellent effort (2-0, 60'). Then the Lyon players took over with a 3rd goal headed home by Camille Abily on a corner (3-0, 66'), and the final effort coming from Elodie Thomis who had just come on, after a rapid counter attack (4-0, 83').
If Nigeria do not beat Germany tonight, France will be qualified for the quarter finals, even before the final group stage match against Germany on Tuesday the 5th of July.
