Les Bleues getting stronger
Les Bleues confirmed their status as one of the favourites for Euro 2013 when, having already secured top spot in the group after two matches, they comfortably overcame England 3-0 on Thursday despite resting several players.
Starting up front, Eugénie Le Sommer opened the scoring as early as the ninth minute after a great run by Elodie Thomis. France always looked in control and secured the win in the second half with a fantastic strike from Louisa Necib (62'), celebrating her 100th cap, and a Wendie Renard header (64'). Amandine Henry made a convincing return to midfield.
In the quarter-finals of the competition, Les Bleues take on Denmark, who finished third in Group A and were drawn ahead of Russia on lots.
Deville - Franco, Delannoy, Renard, Houara - Henry (Catala 61'), Thiney (Abily 46'), Soubeyrand (c.) (Bussaglia 46') - Thomis, Le Sommer, Necib.
