Herve Renard’s team qualifies for the last-eight of the World Cup for the fourth consecutive edition where it will face hosts Australia.
Eugenie Le Sommer scored doubly as France eased to a 4- 0 palm over Morocco at the Women’s World Cup on Tuesday and set up a quarter-final with co-hosts Australia.
Morocco had upset the odds to qualify for the last 16 at the expenditure of Germany in its debut appearance at the event but it no way managed to lay a glove on Herve Renard’s French side in Adelaide.
Kadidiatou Diani opened the scoring on the quarter- hour mark and it was 3- 0 just after the interior point in the first half as Kenza Dali and Le Sommer added farther pretensions.
Stager striker Le Sommer, who’s France’s all- time top arranger, netted again 20 twinkles from time before a crowd of 13,557 as Les Bleues advanced to the last eight with minimal fuss.
It’ll now play Australia in Brisbane on Saturday, with the winners of that going on to play either England or Colombia in the semi-finals.
While France is hopeless to win a first major women’s transnational title, Morocco came into this game with the pressure off, its World Cup formerly a huge success.
Its trainer, the former French transnational midfielder Reynald Pedros, named an unchanged starting line- up following the 1- 0 palm over Colombia that sealed its place in the knockout phase.
Renard made five changes from the France side that beat Panama 6- 3, including recalling Sakina Karchaoui at left- reverse.
Karchaoui, whose parents are Moroccan, set up the nature with a great run down the left hand, a quick exchange of passes with Selma Bacha, and a cross for Diani to nod in.
It was Diani’s fourth thing at the event after her chapeau- trick against Panama in the final group game.
The alternate thing arrived in the 20th nanosecond as Diani cut the ball reverse for Dali to sweep home a first- time finish in off the far post.
And it was 3- 0 three twinkles after that following a protective error, with Nesryne El Chad trying to clear but only succeeding in playing the ball off Diani, who set up Le Sommer.
At that point Morocco might have stressed an indeed heavier defeat than the 6- 0 forging they entered from Germany in their first game.
Still, France took its bottom off the pedal after that and only scored formerly more.
In the 70th nanosecond cover Vicki Becho crossed from the right for Le Sommer to head in her 92nd transnational thing at the aft post. Know More Latest Women’s Football News….
