USA – France Match Prediction | 11-09-2019 07:00

France should, unequivocally, come out of this match with nothing but a comfortable win. There is no reason to think that they would get anywhere near losing this match, even if they were to field their 'B' side. Expert Verdict: France's final match before getting on the plane and heading to Russia will be at home against a very young and inexperienced United States team that have just had a humbling put upon them.

We went to extra time, where the story was a sensational goal-line clearance by Frances Griedge Mbock at one end, followed by a cool Henry winner at the other. Up next was a battle with South American power Brazil in the Round of 16. Frankly, it was a bullshit call. France appeared to have the opener in the 23rd minute, but after the referee checked the monitor, she ruled that Valrie Gauvin had fouled the keeper. Gauvin would later convert in the 53rd minute, but Brazil would answer back through Thaisa only 10 minutes later.

The USAs second loss came at the 2017 SheBelieves Cup, while the third took place in the teams first match of 2019, a 3-1 U.S. 8, 2015, a 2-0 mishap in Lorient, France that commenced the 2015 schedule for the two teams. The USA vindicated the loss with a 2-0 triumph in the title round of the 2015 Algarve Cup in Portugal as Julie Ertz (ne Johnston) and Christen Press scored. defeat in Le Havre on Jan. The USAs first loss to France went ahead Feb. 19.

They did have a couple of notable bobbles, but the right team went straight through in the end. They did not do anywhere near what they were capable of, and they were punished to finish fifth in the Hexagonal. Fourth would have gotten them at least a playoff and a chance to go on, but they lost on the final day to the bottom side and found themselves with egg on their faces. The favored side, of course, is France. Les Bleus, buoyed by a ton of young talent all emerging at once, will go there on the back of a strong performance in Group A in UEFA qualifying. One of the two sides will head to Russia as one of the favorites to win the tournament, while the other will not be going at all. Wobbles would sum up the USA's efforts to make it.
