France thrash Mexico to take top spot
 Women's Football News 17 Jun 2015
 
France 5 (Delie 1, Ruiz og 9, Le Sommer 13,36, Henry 80) Mexico 0
France made sure of finishing on top of Group F with an emphatic victory in Ottawa. 
 
Three goals in the opening thirteen minutes put the result of this game beyond any doubt as the French side looked completely different to that which had suffered a shock defeat to Colombia a few days earlier.
 
France had recalled Marie Laure Delie up front and the striker proved a point just 35 seconds into the game. Elodie Thomis broke down the right and crossed, Alicia Garciamendez managed to reach the ball but could only deflect it upwards and Delie was on hand to head in from close range.
 
The French sought more quick goals and were rewarded after winning a corner on the left in the ninth minute. Camille Abily floated the ball to the near post where the unfortunate Jennifer Ruiz diverted it into her own net off her hip, under heavy pressure from Wendie Renard.
 
Before Mexico could recover, they found themselves three goals behind. Eugenie Le Sommer, Delie and Abily all exchanged passes to release Thomis in the area and her cross was turned home at the near post by Le Sommer.
 
Le Sommer was to get on the scoresheet once again before half time, although this time the striker knew little about it. Abily's free kick into the area was nodded on by Renard and parried by Santiago, the rebound falling for Delie whose shot went in after hitting Le Sommer on the way. It was the tournament's 100th goal and one of the scrappiest so far.
 
The one-sided nature of the match continued after the break with France trying to further press home their advantage. Thomis almost inadvertently found the net with a cross, which bounced on the bar, whilst Gaetane Thiney drove a shot just wide from 25 yards.
 
Mexico mustered only two shots on goal throughout the entire match and their only effort of any note during the second half came when Veronica Perez fired a shot well wide from long range.
 
With ten minutes remaining, France crowned their crushing win with their best goal of the day. Thiney laid the ball back from the edge of the area for Amandine Henry to unleash a powerful shot from 25 yards which fizzed past Santiago and into the top corner of the net. 
 
France: Sarah Bouhaddi, Jessica Houara, Laure Boulleau (sub Sabrina Delannoy 78mins), Laura Georges, Wendie Renard, Amandine Henry, Elodie Thomis, Marie Laure Delie, Eugenie Le Sommer (sub Gaetane Thiney 63mins), Camille Abily (sub Elise Bussaglia 70mins), Amel Majri.

Mexico: Cecilia Santiago, Kenti Robles, Greta Espinoza, Alina Garciamendez, Valeria Miranda, Jennifer Ruiz, Nayeli Rangel (sub Christina Murillo 83mins), Veronica Perez, Charlyn Corral (sub Renae Cuellar 45mins), Stephany Mayor (sub Arianna Romero 45mins), Monica Ocampo.

Player of the match: Amandine Henry.
