In a thrilling match at Brisbane's Lang Park, Captain Wendie Renard's header secured a dramatic 2-1 victory for France over Brazil in Group F of the Women's World Cup. The winning goal came seven minutes before the final whistle when Renard met Selma Bacha's well-placed corner with a powerful downward header that bounced up off the turf and sailed beyond goalkeeper Leticia, securing all three points for the French team. This triumph came after they started their campaign with a goalless draw against Jamaica the previous Sunday.

Eugenie Le Sommer, who scored France's opening goal in the first half, expressed her delight with the win, acknowledging the challenge they faced after the draw against Jamaica. The team had a game plan and stuck to it, which ultimately led to their crucial victory against Brazil.

France now has four points from their first two matches, putting them one point ahead of the Brazilian side, who began the tournament with a convincing 4-0 win over Panama.

Le Sommer, France's all-time leading scorer, made a fantastic start by finding the net in the 17th minute. Her header was perfectly placed after Sakina Karchaoui's well-delivered ball from deep on the left was headed back across the goal by Kadidiatou Diani.

In the first half, Brazil missed a significant chance to level the score when Adriana's shot went wide after a layoff by Debinha. Despite their efforts, they couldn't find the equalizer, and France claimed the crucial victory, securing their position in Group F.
