In fact, consider their home advantages and the case for France winning their first Women's World Cup title becomes ever stronger - most of the starting XI are used to playing in these stadiums together, dominating every game they play and winning titles in the process.

If the U.S.is on a collision course with France in this Women's World Cup-and they could very well meet in the quarterfinals-then the opening salvo fired by France on Friday should have the world champion Americans plenty concerned. All of the games are being broadcast free on the country's TF1 channel. Nearly a million tickets have been sold for matches in the nine host cities.

Yoon conceded that his team had been well beaten by the tournament hosts in front of 45,261 fans at Parc des Princes on Friday, paying for their lack of experience in playing the superpowers of the women's game.

The most thrilling player for France was simply Wendie Renard.

"That is what he said and that is what I am paid to do".

Le Sommer scored in the ninth minute off a cross from Henry and held up her hands in the shape of a heart in celebration after the earliest goal in a Women's World Cup opener.

"I am from that 1998 generation".

"Personally I could not have dreamed of a better start", said Renard, the tallest player in the competition, as she admitted an emotional rendition of the French national anthem had lifted the home players.

South Korea will begin at 3:00 p.m. ET on FS1.

"We need to build experience. It is going to be tough, but we can win it".

Four years ago, all nine teams that won their opener advanced from the 24-nation group stage to the round of 16.

Much has been made of the fact that Lyon's Norwegian striker, Ada Hegerberg, will not be here.

Meanwhile, the United States aim to lift the trophy for the fourth time.

For while their male counterparts remain also-rans internationally, the popularity of the USA has been the financial motor that has driven the women's game.

Nigeria are in France's Group A, and the Super Falcons face Norway in Reims in the final game of the day at 1900 GMT.
