The France Women's national team booked their place at Euro 2013 with a dominant 4-0 victory over Ireland in Guingamp on Saturday night.

Les Bleues deservedly pocketed their tickets for Euro 2013, to be played in Sweden next summer. Les Françaises ran out easy 4-0 winners on Saturday at the Stade Roudourou in Guingamp, including goals to OL players Elodie Thomis (8') and Eugénie Le Sommer (12', 43').

Les Lyonnaises Deville, Georges, Renard, Franco, Abily, Necib, Thomis and Le Sommer were all in the starting line-up. Bouhaddi and Bompastor remained on the bench. Already qualified, France play their final qualifying match against Scotland on Wednesday.

Already eliminated with Switzerland, Lara Dickenmann also scored in her country's 3-1 win over Turkey, as did Lotta Schelin in Sweden's 2-1 friendly win over the Netherlands.
