France make impressive start
 Women's Football News 12 Jul 2013
France 3 (Delie 21,32, Le Sommer 67) Russia 1 (Morozova 84)
France gave notice that they will be among the teams to beat at the Euro 2013 Finals with an impressive performance which gave them a winning start. 
After four successive draws in the opening matches of the tournament, Bruno Bini's side became the first nation to pick up three points and never looked back after Marie-Laure Delie's first half brace.
Les Bleues made a strong start to the game with Gaetane Thiney's long range shot just off target and Russia goalkeeper Elvira Todua saved from a deflected Camille Abily effort.
However on 21 minutes, there was nothing Todua could do as Delie received the ball from Eugenie Le Sommer and evaded Alla Sidorovskaya and confidently powered an unstoppable shot inside the far post for the opening goal.
The striker did not have to wait too long for her second goal to arrive, just after the half hour when Le Sommer was again the provider with a low cross which Delie controlled and drilled home.
France were threatening to run riot at this stage and Russia responded with a double substitution to try and shore things up but Todua needed to prevent them from going three behind on the stroke of half time when she clawed away a header from Le Sommer.
The French introduced Elodie Thomis and Louisa Necib as substitutes during the second half and Thomis was quickly involved, setting up a chance for Elise Bussaglia whose shot was saved by Todua who also needed to keep out another effort from Thiney.
A third goal looked inevitable and it came when Thomis again sped down the right and cut the ball back from the goal line for Le Sommer to slot in from close range.
Abily and Necib both had efforts on goal whilst Thomis made more threatening runs on the wing but Russia were to rally and grab themselves a late consolation. Elena Morozova capitalised on a loss of concentration by Wendie Renard and lifted her shot over Sarah Bouhaddi.
Morozova could even have scored a second after being set up by Elena Terekhova but France will be more than satisfied at their opening to the tournament. 
France: Sarah Bouhaddi, Wendie Renard, Laura Boulleau, Laura Georges, Camille Abily, Sandrine Soubeyrand (sub Camille Catala 76mins), Corine Franco, Elise Bussaglia, Eugenie Le Sommer, Marie-Laure Delie (sub Elodie Thomis 61mins), Gaetane Thiney (sub Louisa Necib 66mins).

Russia: Elvira Todua, Alla Sidorovskaya, Anastasia Kostyukova, Elena Medved (sub Yulia Gordeeva 35mins), Olga Petrova, Ksenia Tsybutovich, Nelli Korovkina, Valentina Savchenkova (sub Anastasia Pozdeeva 35mins (sub Tatiana Skotnikova 68mins)), Elena Morozova, Elena Terekhova, Ekaterina Sochneva.
