By eliminating Morocco on Tuesday August 8 in the round of 16 of the World Cup, Les Bleues secured a quarter-final against Australia.
Les Bleues are in the quarter-finals! With style, the France team largely dominated Morocco in the round of 16 of the Women's World Cup on Tuesday 8 August. After a very quick opener from Diani after 15 minutes of play, Dali and Le Sommer crucified the Moroccans in 9 minutes to allow France to lead 3-0 at the break. In the second half, the French team, in management, once again found the fault by the inevitable Eugénie Le Sommer who comes to score a double and offer a definitive success to the Blue.
The appointment is therefore made for the band at Hervé Renard, in the quarter-finals, on the side of Brisbane, on Saturday August 12 at 11 a.m. in France. The task promises to be much more difficult for the Blues since they will face the team from Australia, host country of this World Cup. With their star, Chelsea striker Sam Kerr, the Australians will leave with a slight advantage, especially since the Blues lost 1-0 in the last preparation match for this World Cup.
In the rest of the quarter-finals, Spain, perhaps the big favorites now with their star Alexia Putellas, face the Netherlands on Friday. The surprising Japanese team, very impressive offensively, will challenge Sweden, who fell to the United States in the round of 16, while England will face Colombia in Sydney.
