The New Zealanders had a great start, with Mark Tilia scoring a goal (0-5), but the French turned the score around at the end of the first half with three penalty kicks executed by Thomas Ramos (9-8). Tilia also shot the ball into the goal area at the beginning of the second half (9-13), but surprisingly, the New Zealanders were unable to complete any other moves.

On the other hand, Damien Benaud (14-13) and Melvin Jaminet put the ball into the goal area (27-13) in the final match that brought the result, while Ramos reliably executed penalty kicks and even scored points from the penalty spot – he did not miss the long-awaited victory. in France.

Based on the current world rankings (3rd and 4th) and the two teams’ World Cup history against each other, France’s victory is not surprising, but if we consider that perhaps the most respected national team in the sport, the three-time world champion All Blacks, have won all 31 in the previous group match in the World Cup, and they have never been beaten in a World Cup by such a large margin, so we can already talk about a historical sporting achievement.

Of course, the World Cup will continue for a long time, and New Zealand is unlikely to succumb to this defeat; However, the French, who had been preparing with high hopes, threw themselves into the weeks of control of the World Cup.
