England's next World Cup qualifying opponents France drew 1-1 with China today.
England's next World Cup qualifying opponents France have started their preparations with a 1-1 against hosts China in the China Cup.
While France were without former WUSA star Marinette Pichon, who stayed home after a family bereavment, they have some wonderfully talented midfielders in Sandrine Soubeyrand and Sonia Bompastor, and an exciting young strike duo of Hoda Lattaf and Elodie Thomas.
France opened the scoring through Elise Bussaglia in the 72nd minute with a beautiful long range shot, only to be pegged back by a last minute equaliser, a looping header from Han Duan.
The USA are next up for Les Bleus tomorrow, after they opened their campaign with a 3-1 win over Norway. Kristine Lilly marked her 300th international appearance with a goal over the WOMEN'S EURO 2005 runners-up.
