How two key subs led the U.S. U-20s to a World Cup round of 16 win over France

It was one-way traffic all night in a packed 45,000-seater Parc des Princes as the French launched wave after wave of attack at the hapless Koreans, running out easy winners to stamp their authority on Group A of the Federation Internationale de Football Association extravaganza.

When: Friday, June 7 at 12 p.m. PT.

Defending champions the United States will get their campaign under way against Thailand on Tuesday, with England and two-time winners Germany among the other teams being strongly tipped for success. France and South Korea are in Group A with Norway and Nigeria.

The World Cup bracket is uniquely hard to predict, especially because in the women's tourney four of the six third-placed teams advance to the knockout stage.

Backed by deafening support the home side began the match with pace, intensity and remarkable desire.

Renard made amends after 35 minutes, the powerful central defender thumping a header home for her 21st worldwide goal.

South Korea, ranked 14th in the world, were largely outplayed but midfielder Lee Min-a placed wide from their best chance in the second half, after a rare error from Renard.

Renard, selected player of the match, is among seven players on France's roster that play for Lyon, which routed Barcelona 4-1 to win the women's Champions League for the fourth straight year and sixth time overall.

So I guess to answer your original question, it was egregious. Chara will start Game 5 for the Bruins, because of course.

Chelsea star Ji So-yun and West Ham's Cho So-hyun were both in South Korea's midfield, which was overrun in the early stages by France's energy, movement and pressing.

France thought they had doubled the lead in the 27th minute when Griedge Mbock Bathy volleyed in, but the effort was ruled out for offside following a VAR check.

France will kick off the 24-team Women's World Cup at a sold-out Parc des Princes when they take on underdogs South Korea in the opening game.

A sell-out crowd of 45,261 filled the Parc des Princes to watch the start of what is billed as the biggest women's World Cup yet, but there was no sign of the pressure getting to the French on the big occasion.

Substitute Kang Chaerim went close to scoring a spectacular consolation for Korea, with their first shot in the 69th minute, but her rising drive narrowly cleared the France crossbar.

Only Marie-Laure Delie (5) has scored more tournament goals for France then Le Sommer (4).

She said: "We had overcome all the difficulties to reach the round of 16, so sitting on the bench against France was painful". They are the third and fourth players to score in two different editions for France.
