Sélection : les Bleues et Cascarino s’imposent contre la Thaïlande (3-0)
FIFA Women's World Cup host nation of France looked sharp as they began final preparations for next month's tournament.

With the likes of Amandine Henry, Wendie Renard and Sarah Bouhaddi on the bench due to their participation in last Saturday's Women's Champions League final, France beat Thailand 3-0 Saturday at the Stade de la Source in a World Cup warm-up match.



Head coach Corine Deacon did, however, line up one Olympique Lyonnais star in her Starting XI: Delphine Cascarino, who played 53 minutes and was replaced by on-loan Lyon striker Emelyne Laurent. Second-half goals from Kadidiatou Diani (2) and Elise Bussaglia gave Les Bleues a solid victory ahead of next month's World Cup, whose semifinals and final will take place at Groupama Stadium. France have one more tune-up, Friday night against China, before getting down to serious business in the tournament.
