U.S. Women Blanked By France in SheBelieves Cup Finale

|

France scored twice in the opening nine minutes and cruised to a 3-0 win over the USWNT in the final game of the SheBelieves Cup.

The three goal margin marked the U.S.'s worst home defeat since 2007 and after a 1-0 defeat to England on Saturday, the first time the U.S. Women had lost back-to-back home games since 2000.

Les Bleus opened the scoring when Eugenie Le Sommer got behind the U.S. backline and was brought down by goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Camille Abily would convert from the penalty spot.

France found the back of the net for the second time with Le Sommer once again beating the overmatched Allie Long. Once past the U.S. backline, Le Sommer was able to slot the ball past Naeher. The Americans mustered a few chances before Abily netted her second of the match and killed the game on 63 minutes.

With the 3-0 win at RFK Stadium, France won the 4-team SheBelieves Cup. The USWNT finished last.
