    France is putting a lot of pressure on the ball - US got to widen the game - make em run, they can't bunch up.

    Goodness. Off the crossbar! France almost scored. Stupid Eurosport TV commentator: "Would have been great if that had gone in" :(

    France is attacking like crazy - we look to slow to the ball - we better wake up.

    USA had two scoring chances, blew them both. But France is controlling most of this match...everything but the score :)

    three minutes in to 2nd half: USA keeps just turning the ball over and over and over this match.

    France scored :(

    Tied 1-1

    Wicked bounce of the ball in front of a leaping Hope Solo...she couldn't get to it

    Eurosport TV commentators (they're British) keep saying that the Brazil game obviously took too much out of the Americans...they are really sluggish, etc.

    I don't know what the coach is waiting for to make some substitutions - anyone can see the French are out running us - our girls looked gassed.

    No way we win without some subs - we can't even string more than 2 passes together.

    If we don't get 2 fresh girls in there we lose - its simple as that - tired players make dumb mistakes and we are doing that.

    Brit commentators thought that was a foul on the French...they guy said, "You almost have to assault somebody to get a free kick out of that referee..."
