France 4 South Korea 0
France got off to a perfect start in the women’s World Cup as the hosts beat South Korea 4-0 in the opening game at the Parc des Princes on Friday.
Le Sommer flicked a shot into the roof of the net after nine minutes, before Renard headed home twice in the 35th minute and in first-half stoppage time.
Henry wrapped up the scoring with five minutes remaining with a superbly curled shot that went into the far corner of the net.
