For the fourth time in history France reached the semi-final of a Women’s World Championship. The key to the elimination of defending champion Russia in the re-match of the 2009 final was the French defence.
The match gave an impression of a real battle of two of the best defences in the world. Especially France played extremely movable and closed all the gaps. And if Russia had the chance to shoot, French goalkeeper Amendine Leynaud saved extremely strong. So the runners-up of the 2009 World Championship took the lead after the 5:5 for the first time – but could not extend it to more than two goals. And in minute 25 “les Bleus” had the great chance to go ahead, when Russia had a two women disadvantage. But goalkeeper Anna Sedoykina saved a penalty shot – and even only four Russians were able to stop the French team and avoided to concede a goal.
On the other hand the traditionally strong Russian defence was focused from the first minute, but in attack the defending champion missed surprisingly many chances.
