What a start for France. They were fantastic. They turned in a performance befitting of their status as one of the favourites for this Women's World Cup. In truth, they were do dominant that the scoreline doesn't quite reflect what we watched over the whole 90 minutes. So very impressive.
This is now the biggest opening game win for a host nation at the Women's World Cup since 1991 (China). France have one minute left to claim that record for themselves and themselves only.
The win puts France at the top of Group A, as Norway and Nigeria wait for Saturday to kick off their World Cup campaigns. Despite the strength of the Norwegians, it will take some performance against Nigeria to see them overtake Les Bleus after one game.
France's dominance against a nervy South Korea was evident early on with a few close shaves nearly giving them the lead. With the French looking dangerous in every attack, it did not take long for them to break the deadlock, as nine minutes in Eugenie Le Sommer crashed home Amandine Henry's cutback with a little help from the crossbar.
On 35 minutes, the giant Wendie Renard made no mistake, as she rose highest from a corner to put France two goals to the good. The centre-back popped up with another powerful header on the stroke of half time to give Les Bleus an unassailable lead going into the break.
The second half was fairly pedestrian by all accounts until France's star player Henry stepped up to curl home a wonderful effort from 25 yards out. The strike put the icing on the cake for her side and they could not have hoped for a better opening game. They will now carry heaps of confidence into their next match with Norway on Wednesday.
