Wales welcome France to Parc Y Scarlets -women’s World Cup qualification

Wales will welcome France to the Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli for their World Cup qualifier on Friday, 8th April.

Gemma Grainger’s side currently sit second in Group I, with France first – undefeated in their six games.

It’ll be the third visit to the Parc Y Scarlets from the Welsh side, having played twice there in the first half of the campaign.

Wales last faced France in the reverse fixture in November, where the French were victorious 2-0.

Kadidiatou Diani and Selma Bacha were the goal scorers on the day, despite Jess Fishlock hitting the woodwork twice.

As expected, it was a dominant display from France who held 69% of the ball with 13 shots compared to Wales’ 6.

Despite the result, the Welsh walked away with their heads held high after a strong performance against one of the best teams in the world.
