| Camille Cirgue was instrumental in France's come-from-behind win|
France made a winning start to the Second Round of the U18 European Championship Women in Matosinhos after fending off neighbours Belgium 58-46 to collect a third success in four games.
Turning Point: Trailing 29-28 when they headed to the locker rooms at the half, France blew Belgium away when the action resumed and outscored their opponents 17-7 as they laid the foundations required to safely take care of business in the final period.
Game Hero: Camille Cirgue racked up 18 points from an excellent 8-of-11 floor shooting display, as well as foraging for seven rebounds.
Stats Don't Lie: Belgium gave up 15 offensive rebounds and their failure to box-out effectively proved to be a fundamental weakness in this match-up.
The Bottom Line: The defence of Les Bleues remains imperious and they have held every team to 50 points or under in the competition so far. If they continue turning the screw on offence, they could prove a tough nut to crack. Belgium have lost to Serbia and France now, arguably two teams tipped for honours and things won't get any easier against red-hot Russia next up.
