France Beats Ticas

 France have reaffirmed their title credentials at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Canada 2014 with a dominant 5-1 victory over Costa Rica at Montreal's Olympic Stadium. Gilles Eyquem's side were in rampant form against a Ticas side that simply could not cope with their opponents' evident technical and physical superiority.

As U-17 world champions in 2012 and European U-19 queens last year, the French are considered among the favourites for the trophy and, from the offset, they set about proving why. It took just seven minutes for them to take the lead, with Faustine Robert earning a penalty after she was taken out by keeper Noelia Bermudez in the act of hitting a post with a lob from the corner of the area.
