Thailand had no match for world No 3 France as they were vanquished 3-0 by the host in a World Cup warm-up at the La Source stadium in Orleans on Saturday.

After a goaless first half, France started showing their superiority and broke the ice in the 61st minute with a left kick from Elise Bussaglia. Then Kadidiatou Diani produced back-to-back goals in the 78th and 85th minutes to propel the home team to the victory.

Thailand still have two more friendly games. They will travel to Belgium for a clash with that nation on June 1 and finally take on Kontich FC in the Belgian city of Leuven three days later.

They kick off their campaign in the World Cup with the US at the Stade Auguste-Delaude in Reims on June 11.
