Marie-Laure Delie struck twice as France recorded the first win at UEFA Women's EURO 2013 by sweeping aside Russia in their opening Group C appointment.

Following a run of four consecutive draws at Sweden 2013, Delie fired her impressively composed side into a 2-0 lead at the break in Norrkoping, and they never looked like letting it slip. Instead, Eugénie Le Sommer added her team's third with the only sore point for Les Bleues a late Elena Morozova goal.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Marie-Laure Delie's first-half double followed by Eugénie Le Sommer's strike has got France's campaign off to a flying start. They will be full of confidence after an excellent, fluent display, with Spain next up. Russia got a consolation through Elena Morozova, but will need to improve if they are to get out of a tough Group C.
  • Yellow Card
    90
    Skotnikova (Russia) is booked.
  • Goal
    84
    Morozova (Russia) scores!
    A long ball forward is somehow missed by Wendie Renard, allowing the forward to nip in behind her and side-foot in a consolation for Russia. It is surely too late for a Russian comeback.
