Frenchman Kadidiatou Diani converted a 90th minute header into the bar, but one of the tournament favorites had to settle for a point.
The draw gave Jamaica their first ever point despite finishing the game ten men down after Khadija Shaw was sent off in added time.
In a game with few chances, Diani had the best opportunities to score the winning goal but was unable to make his way into the soccer stadium in Sydney.
She managed to save from Jamaica goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer in the first half and had her second shot deflected away. Another header in the second half also came past the target, and at the end of the game the ball hit the bar.
France, who are quarterfinalists in 2019, are ranked fifth in the world, while Jamaica are ranked 43rd.
The French were expected to be too strong for Jamaica, who are in the tournament for the second time, having lost all their matches in their 2019 debut with a goal difference of -11.
But favorites haven’t always gotten their way at the tournament, with France becoming the latest to face an outsider.
Australia beat Ireland 1-0 on penalties, while European champion England also needed an accurate strike to beat Haiti 1-0. Nigeria drew 0-0 with Olympic champion Canada.
Jamaica managed to knock off a France team that was unable to establish an effective offense.

A move to Al-Nassr could be a nice change for Dembele for the better in professional soccer, as at 25 years old he has a big salary and time ahead of him. However, Dembele turned down the offer and tried to restart his career and realize his huge potential at Barcelona or other clubs in Europe’s elite.
Ronaldo was Al Nassr’s first player.
A year ago, the Dutch beat Portugal 3-2 in the group stage of the European Championship, but this time the Pyrenees could not stand up to the team in their trademark orange colors and failed to land a single shot on goal until the 82nd minute.
The Dutch scored in the 13th minute from a corner kick when Van der Gragt towered over defenders on the far post and shot with his head, but the flag was raised for offside when the referee saw goalkeeper interference from Jill Roord.
However, after watching the replay on a monitor, the referee overturned the decision to create artificial offside and awarded the goal, prompting a second celebration from the Dutch team.
A few minutes later, Roorde nearly made the score 2-0 with a header opportunity from six meters, but the midfielder’s shot, which missed the goal, hit the bar and saved Portugal from defeat. However, Portugal failed to put a single shot on goal in the first half, imna in support of a similar action by NFL player Collin Kapernick protesting racial injustice.
Many fans of the American team reached out to her on Twitter and condemned her for the act.
Most players on the U.S. women’s national soccer team refused to sing our great national anthem. What. Shameful, one user wrote.
Players who didn’t sing/have their hand on their heart should be replaced immediately. Don’t like/respect the US – fine, then don’t be a hypocrite and play for them in the national team, another fan wrote.

South Africa shocked Sweden when Hilda Migala scored in the 48th minute. But Sweden battled back in the 64th minute when Fridolina Rolfo equalized. Ilestedt then struck a precise header off a corner kick with a minute to go, which helped Sweden escape at the end of an unimpressive start to the game.
Sweden were expected to win the group easily, and the first match against 54th-ranked South Africa looked the easiest. But after a goalless first half, Sweden came out of the locker room out of sorts and where Sweden has rarely shone.
The ball was served into the 11th corner kick for Sweden and Ilestedt headed the ball into the net with perfect accuracy. It was a cruel blow to the South African team, who played very bravely and shocked Sweden with the first goal of the match. But it took Sweden to the next level, giving them the expected early lead in Group G.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Sweden had not lost in a World Cup group match since 2003, and for a moment on Friday that record was in jeopardy. But goals from Rolfo and Ilestedt, the latter with just moments to go, gave Sweden an expected win in Group G. It wasn’t impressive, and Sweden will have to improve.
Italy and Argentina, the other teams in Group G, have been warned not to overlook South Africa after its successful performance.
Italy and Argentina will meet in their next Group G match in Auckland on Monday. Both will be watching and celebrating South Africa’s performance. The group suddenly looks tighter than expected.
South Africa will play Argentina in Dunedin on Friday, while Sweden will face Italy in Wellington on Saturday.
