USWNT Bounces Back Versus France

It was back to business as usual on Tuesday for the USWNT.

After a surprising 1-1 draw with Sweden on Saturday, the USWNT was sought to rebound against France in Le Havre to cap off its two-game April trip in Europe.

The USWNT was hot out of the gate, bringing immense pressure early on. A penalty drawn by Alex Morgan in the 5th minute saw Megan Rapinoe finish it off on the penalty kick.

That marks five goals over four consecutive games for the veteran winger, including the U.S.’s lone goal against Sweden.

From there it was all gas and no breaks. Morgan would go on to net a goal of her own in the 19th off of a feed from Christen Press.

All in all the USA dominated this one from the jump, outshooting France 16-3. 

Some additional stats:

  • The USWNT is now 19-3-3 all-time vs. France and 3-2-1 against Les Bleues in their last six games.
  • U.S. head coach Vlatko Andonovski is off to about as good of a start as one could ask for. In his first 18 games the team is 17-0-1, making it a record for the best start for a head coach in USWNT history.
  • With Press’ assist, she finds herself only one goal or assist away from becoming the 14th player in U.S. history with 100 combined goals and assists.
