France vs. South Korea: Story Line
France: France never won the World Cup, but hopes to replicate what the men’s team had done 21 years ago, winning their first victory when it hosted the tournament. A strong national league provided the best competition for many of these players, and seven of them play for the winner of the Lyon Champions League. Eugenie Le Sommer is a star in the attack. Lyon scored 223 goals in 249 games.
South Korea: This is the third World Cup in South Korea, after leaving the group stage in 2015. It is always difficult to play against your host. South Korea will certainly try to play a more defensive role to try to draw. The important thing is not to fall as soon as possible and try to resist the storm. A point would be like a victory.
France vs. South Korea: prediction
France scores two goals for Le Sommer and takes it easily.
Election: France 3, South Korea 0
