What a blast for the Blues! While Amandine Henry sends a back pass to Renard, the latter does not sense Capeta coming behind her who tries from 35 meters! It goes right by!
The Blues not safe
Despite their clear domination, Hervé Fox’s team failed to double the lead and is still under threat of a Portuguese equalizer.
Big tackle from Borges (1-0, 77′)
While Becho is launched in depth, the Portuguese full-back makes a magnificent sliding tackle, committed and necessary. Very nice intervention.

The heat stroke for the French defense!
Fortunately Encarnaçao misses his control! Following a good delivery, she could have found herself face to face with the French goalkeeper. It was hot !
While she wanted to head for her goalkeeper, she didn’t use enough power and Da Silva took advantage of it. The French side comes back well and tackles for a corner.

Things are heating up in the Portuguese area!

Fox’s head! (0-0, 21′)
Wendie Renatd’s face! The Blue captain receives a corner but does not put enough power into her attempt.
Incomprehension in the French defense!
What disagreement! De Almeida and Picaud do not speak to each other and let the ball slip away! Silva was hanging around but Périsset clears.
The bar for Périsset! (0-0, 17′)
After a good movement, the French side has time to adjust a shot from 25 meters! It is floating and almost surprises Morais, who diverts on his bar.
