France 4 – 3 Argentina |  rubyrhino.co.uk

Today featured the first two rounds of the FIFA World Cup last 16 with the winners qualifying for the quarter-finals. Both matches feature France vs Argentina & Uruguay vs Portugal which is always going to be a fierce match with no real favourites.

France vs. Argentina
Final Score 4-3

Argentina comes into the game as 5th in the FIFA rankings and France comes in as 7th which would represent a small advantage for Argentina; however France had a very comfortable group stage whereas Argentina struggled even when facing a much lower ranking team.

The first half started with a formidable French performance with Antoine Griezmann’s free kick which almost slipped behind the goal and instead hit the crossbar. But just a few minutes later at 13th minutes France were awarded a penalty despite a poor tackle by Marcus Rojo on Mbappe which Griezmann comfortably slotted into the back of the net to give France the lead. Much later in the 41st minute with a fantastic long shot from Angel di Maria to make it 1-1.

Argentina started the second half very strongly with Mercado giving Argentina the lead in the 48th minuteth minutes after the assist by Messi but this didn’t last long as France equalized in the 57th minuteth minutes with a fantastic strike by Pavard. France then put the game out of reach for Argentina following Mbappe’s double. But Argentina scored another goal late in injury time in the 93rd minuterd minutes through Aguero’s header.

Former top-ranked Amelie Mauresmo appointed French Open’s first female director

Former top-ranked Amelie Mauresmo appointed French Open’s first female director

Two-time major champion Amelie Mauresmo was appointed tournament director of the French Open on Thursday, succeeding Guy Forget and becoming the first woman to hold the position.

Forget, whose contract is due to expire at the end of the year, stepped down this week, citing communication problems with the new president of the French tennis federation Gilles Moretton.

The 42-year-old Mauresmo, who was inspired to play tennis after watching Yannick Noah win the 1983 French Open, became the first player from France — male or female — to reach No. 1 in the modern era, on September 10. 13, 2004. He was No. 1 for 39 weeks of his career.

“This tournament has made me dream from the start, it has created a calling in me,” Maursemo told a news conference on Thursday.

But he was never able to emulate Noah’s feat of winning on clay at Roland Garros, failing to get past the quarter-finals at a Grand Slam tournament in Paris, where he struggled to withstand the pressure in front of the home crowd.

Mauresmo, whose backhand delights tennis fans around the world, also won the Fed Cup with France in 2003 and the WTA Tour championship in 2005. He won an Olympic silver medal in Athens in 2004.

After his playing career, Mauresmo coached one of the top male players, Andy Murray. She is also the captain of the French Fed Cup women’s team and was a TV commentator during this year’s Roland Garros.

Mauresmo is the second woman to be appointed director of a Grand Slam after Stacey Allaster, the US Open tournament boss.

“Yes, I am very proud to be the first female director of Roland Garros, but I also believe that it is necessary to emphasize why I am here, (reasons) other than my gender,” said Mauresmo. “I want this question to be irrelevant today. We need to steer and move toward something more egalitarian, regardless of gender. It doesn’t matter what gender you are, it’s just what skills you have.”

Mauresmo’s contract runs until 2024, the French federation said.

Forget has been running tournaments at Roland Garros since 2016. He is a former tennis player who achieved a career best ranking of No. 4 in the early 1990s.

Stade Roland Garros has undergone a major overhaul during Forget’s reign, with the addition of a retractable roof on Philippe Chatrier Square and the construction of a stunning new field surrounded by greenhouses filled with exotic plants.

Under Forget’s leadership, the French Open also introduced an evening session this year.
