[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP QUALIFYING] The Women's World Cup has been expanded from 16 to 24 teams for the 2015 finals in Canada, but the many lopsided scores in European qualifying indicate the depth of the competition is still rather slim.

France, fourth at the 2011 Women's World Cup, won, 10-0, at Bulgaria on Saturday in a match that saw Marie-Laure Delie score a hat trick after only 10 minutes and the Bleues led, 5-0, after only 19 minutes. They've won their first three qualifiers by a margin of 17-1

Among the winners on Saturday was Poland with a 3-0 win at Northern Ireland. Former U.S. U-20 Nikki Krzysik missed a penalty kick for the Poles.

Only one of seven games was decided by less than three goals, all seven winners were victorious via shutout.

Germany's 6-0 win over Slovenia upped its goal margin in four wins to 32-0. The 32 goals are more than double the other five teams have scored in its group combined.

Europe:
Group 1
Slovakia 0-6 Germany
Group 2
Spain 1-0 Romania
Group 4
No. Ireland 0-3 Poland
Group 5
Netherlands 7-0 Greece
Group 6
Montenegro 0-3 Wales
Group 7
Hungary 4-1 Kazakhstan
Bulgaria 0-10 France
