Le Sommer gave France the lead in the 19th minute, Valerie Gauvin made it 2-0 in the 36th minute.

Ghainey Thaine increased the lead for the Des Blues lead on the stroke of half time to give France a 3-0 lead in the first half.

The Des Blues continued from where they stopped in the first half by scoring in the 60th Minute through Aminata, Gauvin added her second of the day in the 70th minute.

Twelve minutes later Gauvin completed her hat trick before Faith Ikidi scored an own goal to compound Super Falcons' woes.
