END OF THE 3RD QUARTER TIME. Ten extremely complicated minutes for the France team, who can thank Sandrine Gruda for being only three small points behind before starting the last act.

JAPAN – FRANCE (30-29)

The defensive activity of the Japanese, who do not hesitate to take the French ball carrier together, terribly annoys the Blue. Duchet loses the ball.

The penetrations of Evelyn Mawuli hurt the defense of the Blue. Four consecutive points for her.

Les Bleues try to take advantage of their size advantage by pounding inside. But Helena Ciak is seen hissing a walk.
