It was a close final between France and Norway in the World Cup. As late as just over ten minutes left, only one goal separated the teams, in favor of the Frenchwomen.

But then it came to an end for Norway. Three straight goals became what could be described as a yellow drink for France.

Tears before the final whistle

The distance was then kept even though France had a little tougher time in the game. 20-year-old Lena Grandveau then scored four straight goals, including a shot from outside the top of the net.

The gold felt safe when goalkeeper Hatadou Sako also nailed it again with an impressive save.

At the time out that followed, there were already tears in the eyes of French players. The final score was 31-28 and means France's third World Cup gold – and revenge for the final loss against Norway in the last World Cup.
