It’s a big one today. France vs United States. A match-up that has been billed since World Cup groups were drawn and match schedules released. A path to the Final for either the host nation or number one ranked team would have to go through a potential quarterfinal between the two of them.
That potential is now reality as France prepares to show the world that they are ready and up to the challenge of overcoming pressure and expectation in facing elimination games on the world’s biggest stages. France Head Coach Corinne Diacre has made an effort to get her team ready with much of the roster seeing game time minutes this tournament.
United States are on the path of repeating as World Cup champions, but have their biggest test ahead of them when they take on France. France enters the day undefeated this World Cup, just like the United States. Come kickoff, France will roll out with their best lineup to tackle this quarterfinal, as will the United States. But it could be depth that makes the difference for USWNT, who hold the edge over France in regard to personnel.
Regardless of depth, this match could come down to big time players making big time plays and eyes will be on players like Amandine Henry, Wendie Renard, and Eugénie Le Sommer to lead France forward. With players like Lindsay Horan, Megan Rapinoe, and Tobin Heath pushing for United States.
