France v Sweden Women's World Cup Highlights

France again dominated possession, but it boiled down to not enough good finishing and sloppy marking that earned them 4th place. Sweden went on the board first behind a nice outside flick from Lotta Schelin. On the other side of the half, the French scored off sub Thomis. Then, seemingly, it was all over for the Swedish as Oqvist gets hacked, not once but twice as she's going down, but she retaliated and that, every time, will earn the red. Who knew the French were good at provoking a fight? Down a player for nearly 25 minutes, the Swedish hung on and even managed a magnificent shot off a poor clearance as Hammarstrom put away the match and won 3rd place for the Swedish.
