World Cup opening game draws record audience in France

Eugénie Le Sommer and Amandine Henry also got goals on a cool, windy night at Parc des Princes, the home of Paris Saint-Germain.

"We struggled so much today because we haven't had a lot of opportunities to play powerful teams like France", he told the Yonhap news agency.

It was a fine start to a tournament that has been billed as the biggest yet for the women's game, with a sell-out crowd of more than 45,000 filling the Parc des Princes in Paris and celebrating a rampant French victory.

Amandine Henry, the silky midfielder, created the opening goal just nine minutes in by winning the ball in the Korean half and gliding downfield in transition to send a ideal cross to Eugenie Le Sommer for the earliest goal ever in a Women's World Cup opener.

The Japan women's national team is hoping to repeat its World Cup win of eight years ago.

Le Graet, has set the home team the target of going all the way to the final.

"I could not have dreamed for more than this", Henry said.

"I am from that 1998 generation".

Henry said after the match that the result will boost momentum for her side in coming matches.

"We need to build experience".

'We'll have 30 or 40,000 people pushing us to win games'. 24 nations are competing in the finals.

Much has been made of the fact that Lyon's Norwegian striker, Ada Hegerberg, will not be here. Ten of her last 11 goals have come on headers.

Meanwhile, the United States aim to lift the trophy for the fourth time.

Among the other contenders are England, who begin their bid against old rivals Scotland in Nice on Sunday.

South Korea also face Norway in Reims on June 17 in the opening round group stage.
