Ten million French tune in for Women’s World Cup opener

The FIFA WWC trophy is displayed at the Bastille fortress

Germany has won the Women's World Cup twice. French pop star Jain provided the pre-game entertainment for the sellout crowd of 45,261 fans.

Meanwhile when Eugenie Le Sommer opened the scoring for France's game winning goal in the ninth minute, she became the fastest player to open the scoring in Women's World Cup of soccer history.

It's the biggest women's World Cup ever with almost one million tickets sold for a global tournament in which competition is so stiff that several teams are genuine contenders for the title. Along with serving as the host of the World Cup, France is also one of the tournament's favorites.

"We started well, it was the way to go we made it easy for ourselves".

After continuing to go back and forth, South Korea seized their opportunity in the 76th minute of the game when Hwang Ui Jo scored an impress goal as number 14 Hong Chul crossed it into the penalty box.

"We worked a lot, they suffered a lot during the preparation period. You can only transcend yourself when you hear 45 000 people sing La Marseillaise", woman of the match Wendie Renard told reporters.

Trump receives another ‘beautiful’ letter from North Korea’s Kim Jong
The U.S. and South Korea also have blamed North Korea, but Malaysian officials never officially accused Pyongyang of involvement. A deal to denuclearize North Korea has proven elusive to Trump, despite two high-profile summits with Kim.

If we want to play at 720p, we will have to have a 10 Mbps connection . "So you know I'm pretty sure we're going to get there". When you see a video stall and say "buffering", it's because there aren't enough future frames available.

France looked to have doubled its lead in the opening match vs. France faces Norway on Wednesday and Nigeria on June 17. 24 nations are competing in the finals.

France is hosting the tournament at a time when women's teams are increasing their push for equal treatment from Federation Internationale de Football Association and other soccer governing bodies.

The world's fourth-ranked team wasn't tested by No. 14 South Korea.

With 66 per cent of the overall possession and 21 shots attempted compared to South Korea's four, there is no doubting Corinne Diacre's side were in total control, physically, technically and tactically superior across the park.

However, the United States are not the defending Olympic champions. South Korea has conceded the first goal in all eight World Cup games it has played.

Renard made amends after 35 minutes, the powerful central defender thumping a header home for her 21st global goal. Ten of her last 11 goals have come on headers. It was Le Sommer's 75 goal for her country. She added that her team has been improving over the past several years and is gunning for the best result possible.
