France edge past Brazil
 Women's Football World Cup News - 24 Jun 2019
 
World Cup hosts France survived their biggest test so far as they defeated Brazil 2-1 after extra time to reach the quarter finals.
 
France once again struggled to create clear cut chances against their well organised opponents but thought they had taken the lead midway through the first half when Kadidiatou Diani floated a cross into the area and Valerie Gauvin challenged Brazil goalkeeper Barbara, the ball ending up in the net. The goal was initially given but celebrations were cut short after a long, long VAR review when a foul was finally given.
 
The two teams continued to cancel each other out for the remainder of the first half but seven minutes after the restart, Diani broke down the right and her low cross was slid home by Gauvin from close range.
 
Brazil reacted well to going behind; first Cristiane saw a header tipped onto the bar by Sarah Bouhaddi and then, after good work by Debinha, Thaisa drilled home a low shot into the far corner. An offside flag was raised but VAR overturned this decision and Brazil were back on level terms.
 
Eugenie Le Sommer wasted a great chance to win it for France, meaning that the game went until extra time. The pace of the game did not drop, with both teams going all out for goal, and a superb piece of defending was to keep France from going behind. Debinha cut in from the left past two defenders and her shot beat Bouhaddi but a covering Griedge Mbock Bathy was well placed to block the ball on the line.
 
This clearance was to have even greater significance in the second period of extra time. Amel Majri drove a free kick from deep into the area and Amandine Henry got inside her marker to steer the ball past Barbara and put France back in front.
 
There were no scares for France this time as they successfully ran down the clock for a hard earned win and they now await either the United States or Spain in the quarter finals.
