Considerada uma das favoritas ao título, a equipe da casa não tomou conhecimento das sul-coreanas no primeiro tempo. Foram quatro gols, sendo que um deles foi cancelado pela intervenção do árbitro de vídeo (VAR).

O placar foi aberto aos nove minutos. Após uma bobeada na saída de bola da Coreia, pela esquerda, o ataque francês roubou a bola e a jogada culminou em cruzamento da linha de fundo, da direita, para Eugenie Le Sommer completar com tranquilidade para as redes

Aos 27, começou a brilhar a estrela de Wendie Renard. A zagueira do Lyon deu assistência para a finalização de Mbock Bathy. A bola morreu no fundo das redes, mas a árbitra consultou o auxílio do vídeo e anulou o gol por impedimento.

Renard balançou as redes oito minutos depois, em cruzamento na área. A defensora de 1,87m subiu mais que as rivais e cabeceou para as redes. Antes do intervalo, aos 47 minutos, uma cobrança de escanteio na área gerou nova cabeçada certeira da zagueira francesa.

Após abrir 3 a 0 no marcador, a equipe da casa desacelerou no segundo tempo. Mas isso não significa que cedeu espaço ao limitado time coreano. Com dificuldades em todos os setores, a Coreia do Sul não impor qualquer ameaça à defesa francesa.

E ainda sofreu com novas investidas do ataque anfitrião. Aos 32, Bussaglia perdeu boa chance em finalização colocada, de fora da área. O quarto gol viria aos 39, em bela finalização de Amandine Henry, de fora da área, dando números finais ao duelo de abertura do Mundial Feminino.
