France score against Brazil at the Women's World Cup

France have scored five goals from set piece situations at the 2019 Women’s World Cup

Hosts France beat Brazil 2-1 to reach the Women’s World Cup quarter-finals in another game dominated by video assistant referee decisions.

Valerie Gauvin, who had earlier had a goal ruled out by VAR, put France ahead after a fine run by Kadidiatou Diani.

Brazil levelled when Thaisa’s drive, originally ruled out for offside, was given after another VAR check in Le Havre.

Amandine Henry got on the end of Amel Majri’s long free-kick for the winner.

A tightly-contested tie was minutes away from a penalty shootout when France captain Henry scored from close range to send Les Bleues into the last eight and a tie with the United States – the 2015 winners – or Spain in Paris on Friday (20:00 BST).
