France vs USA − Match preview
Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle, meet Amandine Henry. And Wendie Renard. Oh, and Eugenie Le Sommer too. We have a clash of the titans on our hands.
Both sides topped their respective groups, collecting nine points out of a possible nine, and it’s a shame for neutrals that they’re having to meet so early on in the competition.
However, despite looking so strong in the group stages, France and the USA each laboured to victory in the Round of 16. Les Bleues scraped past Brazil (2-1) on Sunday, while Team USA needed a pair of penalties to get past Spain (2-1) a day later.
On paper, this looks like a classic, and whoever comes out on top tonight will surely emerge as the standout favourites for the trophy. Hopefully the searing temperatures don’t ruin the spectacle.
