29 Jul France 2-1 Brazil (Jul 29, 2023) Game Analysis – ESPN
Captain Wendy Renard’s header seven minutes from time earned France a dramatic 2-1 win over Brazil at Brisbane’s Lang Park on Saturday as Herve Renard’s side picked up their first win in Group F of the Women’s World Cup.
Renard met Selma Bacha‘s corner with a firm downward header that bounced back up off the turf and beyond goalkeeper Leticia to give the French all three points after opening their campaign with a 0-0 draw against Jamaica last Sunday.
Eugenie Le Sommer had put France in front in the 17th minute when she steered a close-range header home.
Debinha levelled the scores 13 minutes into the second half, coolly slotting in after Kerolin‘s shot had been deflected into her path but captain Renard ensured the French move onto four points from their opening two games.
