Gambia through to round of 16, France’s fortunes ‘reversed’ after second straight defeat

Our third-round opponents, the Gambia, had secured their place in the round of 16 with two straight wins, while the ‘favorites’, France, had lost two straight and were in danger of being eliminated.

In the 13th minute of the first half, a clumsy goal kick by French goalkeeper Renard leads to an own goal.

Gambian Boyang’s shot rattled the French net after hitting the keeper and a defender in turn.

Four minutes later, France’s ace in the hole, Odogbe, equalized with a header.

However, France would concede again in the 23rd minute of the second half to go down 2-1 and face elimination with a second straight defeat.

Meanwhile, there was a celebratory aftermath for the Gambians, who booked their place in the round of 16 with two straight wins.
