Tuesday's Results

France vs. England

A classic European rivalry played out in Group F's first match of the day as Eugenie Le Sommer scored France's winner in the 29th minute.

England's women's national team has not defeated the French since 1974.

One of the most complete teams in the World Cup, France outshot England 19-3, allowing only one Three Lioness' shot on target. Possession was dominated by the French at a 63 percent tilt.

Le Sommer's strike came as she marauded down the right wing, surrounded by three English defenders. Despite being draped, Le Sommer found the time and inch of space to fire a shot from 20 yards out that beat goalkeeper Karen Bardsley at the near post, a strike that impressed the Mail's Oliver Holt.

Colombia vs. Mexico

Both of these sides have never won a World Cup match. After Tuesday, they'll have to wait a little longer.

Mexico started better, mounting pressure on the Colombia defense, which finally broke in the 35th minute. And only by inches.

Veronica Perez's shot just landed past the goal line in the tournament's first use of scoring review. Taking a free kick from just feet in front of the corner flag, Perez managed to send an arching, bending ball to the cross bar, which came down and just crossed the line.

Colombia, not deterred by their bad luck, slowly built momentum and gained attacking prowess as the game wound down. It was not until the 82nd minute that their pressure paid off.
