Monday’s match between France and Nigeria at the Rennes has been said to be the most heightened drama in the tournament so far. France were awarded a spot-kick - after a video assistant review -in the 75th minute when Ngozi Ebere fouled Viviane Asseyi in the box.
Centre-back Renard stepped up to take it and missed hitting the outside of the right post. However VAR intervened, judging 18-year-old Super Falcons keeper Chiamaka Nnadozie to have moved off her line early. Renard stepped up again scoring the goal that secured France the victory.
