VIDEO: France score goal of the year contender in women's U-20 World Cup

French Flags

France ladies under-20 scored an unbelievably good goal in their 5-1 win over Costa Rica yesterday.

 

The fantastic goal was Claire Lovagez's second in the match leaving her the tournament's current top goalscorer.

It was that good in fact it's hard to decide which element of the goal was best; whether it be the Johan Cruyff-like pass, the perfectly times deft flick or the dipping half-volley that crashed in off the underside of the crossbar, they were all sensational.

The creative midfielder told FIFA.com after the game: "I don't score too often, it's just that, when I do, they tend to be spectacular."

She isn't wrong, at the 2011 UEFA U-17 European Women's Championship the 20-year-old made a name for herself by scoring a stunning long-range free-kick against Germany. 

The result leaves France top of the group with Paraguay and New Zealand still to play.
