Game Day! France take on Brazil in the second International friendly match, after drawing 2-2 in Nancy on Wednesday. 

The exciting replay will take place on Saturday 9th March 2013 in Rouen at 20:50 CET, live on D8.


The first match was played in front of 16,752 spectators in Nancy, and saw the Brazilians take the lead in the 33rd minute through a Giovana header. It was substitute Eugenie Le Sommer who scored the equaliser for France in the 57th Minute, before Giovana reacted to a Bouhaddi goalkeeping error to put Brazil back in front. Just four minutes left to play and France earn a penalty which was converted by Thiney to level the game and end as 2-2.


There was a lot of action in the opening friendly and both teams are now familiar with each others style of play. It will be great to see what lessons were learnt from the first match and how both teams approach the replay!

    It’s ok @Gromit, I agree Le Sommer’s performance has not been her best so far. I think, like England this is going to remind France to play 100% at all times in the main tournament.

    After seeing and reading about all the games that have been played recently, and especially the teams that will compete in the European Championship, I can’t say that a single one team has made an impression. France and Germany are mostly caught in a tie-swamp. That meaning that almost all except Germany’s latest game vs Japan has ended in ties. France must score on the multiple of chances they get. It seems to me that if Wendie Renard is absent, France looses the ability to win. I think she is much more important than any other player on the French team.

    Although England won the match against Scotland before the Cyprus Cup, they struggled to do so now and ended with a tie. Can’t really say why, because I didn’t see any of Englands game of late. One thing is certain, they must win over their weaker opponents. Finland played pretty well against Canada after reading some reports. It’s such a tragic loss for Finland to loose their best goalscorer Linda Sällström, to yet another ACL injury..She tore her ACL just before the beginning of Damallsvenskan last season, and was absent for the entire period. She just got back, and she does it again. Finland without Sällström is like, Canada without Sinclair…

    Sweden is Sweden. Has very often a hard time creating chances, and when they do, aren’t as efficient in scoring as some other countries. The gamve vs Iceland should be disregarded, since Iceland didn’t have their best eleven for injuries. Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir, and Margret Lara Vidarsdottir, with the latter making the most goals for Iceland, but prone to injuries.

    @Sass – Very interesting points, they do need to work on their finishing, as it is such a waste of numerous chances they create. Do you think when they get frustrated it effects their game?
