France gets back to winning ways
The loss to Colombia was well and truly erased. Four goals in the first half including three in the opening 13 minutes and a fifth late on... 5-0 and top spot in Group F after England defeated Colombia 2-1. Le Sommer netted a brace and Henry scored the fifth goal of the evening. 7 Lyon players started the match (Bouhaddi, Renard, Majri, Henry, Abily, Thomis, Le Sommer); Bussaglia replaced Abily (70'). Le Sommer took her tally for the tournament to three goals, the same number as Hegerberg.
