The American started the score early. After Alex Morgan received a foul just outside the penalty area of France, Megan Rapinoe lined up to take the free kick. The shot was a laser. The ball went through a sea of American and French players, without touching, and found the bottom of the net in the fifth minute. It was the first time that France was lost in this Women’s World Cup.
The second half began the same as the first. A strong attack by the United States from the first moment. The United States threw two shots on goal in the seconds after the initial whistle. Corner kicks, powerful strikes and lucky rebounds were in favor of the Americans. France was more successful after its part-time adjustments with several scoring opportunities, but also several unforced errors.
