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.

    Skotnikova (Russia) delivers the corner.

  • 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.

    Skotnikova (in) - Pozdeeva (out) (Russia)
  • Goal
    67
    Le Sommer (France) scores!
    A third from France and it was made by Élodie Thomis. She skips past Yulia Gordeeva and Ksenia Tsybutovich on the right, and her low cross is simply turned in at the front post by the clinical No9.
  • Substitution
    66
    Necib (in) - Thiney (out) (France)
  • 65
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    Gaëtane Thiney tests the goalkeeper from range again, but she is up to the challenge, and displays her good handling once more.

    Thiney (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 64
    Morozova (Russia) takes the free-kick.
  • 64

  • 62
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    An immediate impact from Élodie Thomis, who shows her lightning pace to break down the right. Her cross finds Élise Bussaglia on the edge of the area but the low shot is straight at the keeper.
  • 62
    Bussaglia (France) has an effort on goal.
  • Substitution
    61
    Thomis (in) - Delie (out) (France)
    There will be no hat-trick for the No18 today. Things will not get easier for the Russian defence however, with the introduction of the deadly Olympique Lyonnais forward.
  • 60
    Delie (France) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Terekhova (Russia).
  • 58
    Kostyukova (Russia) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Soubeyrand (France).

    Soubeyrand (France) delivers the corner.
  • 49
    Morozova (Russia) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 48
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    Camille Abily picks out Marie-Laure Delie in the centre, and the forward moves herself to the right of her marker before drilling at goal, but the effort is too close to the keeper.
  • 48
    Delie (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 48
    Bussaglia (France) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Sochneva (Russia).
  • 46
    Delie (France) has a shot blocked.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Russia get the second 45 under way and they will be hoping for a better time in the second half. Sergei Lavrentyev's made little impact before the break, and it will take a big turnaround to see them get anything from this game.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    France are looking serene after the first half. They have been in total control, and could well have had more than their two. Marie-Laure Delie is proving more than a handful, and the forward will be keen to get three, against a Russia side who offered very little.
  • 45+2
    Soubeyrand (France) delivers the corner.
  • 45+1
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    A cross from the left is met by the head of Eugénie Le Sommer, and the ball is heading in before the Russian keeper gets across expertly to somehow scramble the ball behind.
  • 45+1
    Le Sommer (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 41
    Petit (France) misses the target.
  • 41

  • 34
    Soubeyrand (France) delivers the corner.
  • Goal
    32
    Delie (France) scores!
    A second for Delie, and it is a far simpler finish. Eugénie Le Sommer is sent clear on the right, and she rolls across the area, where the forward has an age to control and slot past a helpless Elvira Todua.
  • 31
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
  • 31
    Thiney (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 30
    Delie (France) misses the target.
    A ball over the top of the Russian defence is brought down neatly by the goalscorer, who drifts into the righ tof the area and powers a shot over. She looks dangerous.
  • 26
    Abily (France) misses the target.
  • Yellow Card
    23
    Kostyukova (Russia) is cautioned by the referee.
  • 23
    Kostyukova (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Abily (France).
  • Goal
    21
    Delie (France) scores!
    A powerful finish gives France the lead. She did not catch her effort cleanly a moment earlier, but the No18 certainly caught this one well, latching on to a ball into the right of the area, and smashing into the far corner beautifully.
  • 20
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    Ekaterina Sochneva gives the ball away in her own half with a loose pass, which Marie-Laure Delie pounces on, turns towards goal and strikes from 20 metres. The shot does not have the power to trouble the Russian No1.
  • 20
    Delie (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 13
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    Eugénie Le Sommer drives a cross in from the right, which finds Camille Abily on the penalty spot. She powers at goal but Anastasia Kostyukova throws herself at the effort, taking the sting out of the shot, which lands in the grateful arms of the goalkeeper.
  • 13
    Abily (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 11
    Delie (France) fouls.
  • 8
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
    A free-kick is swung in from the right which the Russian keeper punches clear. It is worked back to Corine Franco on the edge of the area, but her low effort is too close to Todua, who gets down well to gather comfortably.
  • 8
    Petit (France) has an effort on goal.
  • 8
    Todua (Russia) makes a save.
  • 8
    Soubeyrand (France) has an effort on goal.

  • 7
    Medved (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Le Sommer (France).
  • 6
    Morozova (Russia) misses the target.
    A first assault from Russia comes as the forward is played in down the centre. The shot from the edge of the area lacks power as she was rapidly closed down by the speedy Wendie Renard.
  • 6
    Savchenkova (Russia) is penalised for a foul on Abily (France).
  • 4
    Sochneva (Russia) is flagged for offside.
  • 3
    Thiney (France) misses the target.
    The first effort comes in from France, and it is the No17 who steps up to worry Elvira Todua. The powerful effort from 20 metres has the keeper troubled but it flies just over the bar.
  • 2
    Savchenkova (Russia) takes the corner.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
    France kick us off. After Germany were held last night, can Bruno Bini's side lay down a marker, and display their title credentials?
