Niger v France | Group Stage 2019
For the first moment in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, France won all three team matches. In 2011 and 2015 Les Bleues never had more than six marks. They recorded them.
France was the fourth participants with the highest points to progress to the knockout stage. It was done by the United States in 1999 and 2003, and by Germany in 2011.
France is at the bottom and likely worth it as far as ownership is concerned, but to achieve this they required another punishment. Diacre and the hosts will not care: they will be champions of group A at the 16th round and will go to Le Havre.
Nigeria has performed against the powerful French side in one of its best defense displays in latest years. During the match the Super Falcons were tactical, and although they are deeply unhappy that they won no prizes, they are happy that they have implemented much of the game scheme. Now we wait to see if they will advance for the first moment in 20 years from the group point.
