France Women News and Form – Hosts to come up short in Paris?

France bulldozed their way into the Round of 16, winning all three of their group matches to go through at a canter. The French got the tournament up and running with a convincing 4-0 win over South Korea at the Parc des Princes.

Corinne Diacre’s side then edged past Norway in a tight game in Nice to seal their passage safely through to the last 16. Eugenie Le Sommer’s penalty 18 minutes from time proved to be the difference. With qualification already sewn up, a Wendie Renard penalty gave them a 1-0 win over Nigeria in their final Group A game.

The hosts went up against Brazil in Le Havre in the Round of 16. It was a fascinating fixture at the Stade Oceane, with France needing extra time to finally see off a dogged Brazilian outfit. Amandine Henry was the hero, scoring a 107th-minute winner.

If France can get the better of the holders on Friday, Diacre’s ladies will become the strong favourites to go all the way. Can Les Bleus win their first ever Women’s World Cup this year?

USA Women News and Form – Stars and Stripes to scrape through?

USA kicked off their tournament with a thumping 13-0 win over Thailand in Reims. The prolific Alex Morgan filled her boots, scoring five times in the rout. In their three group games, America scored 18 and conceded none.

After easing past Thailand at the Stade Auguste-Delaune, Jill Ellis’ girls then beat Chile 3-0 in Paris. Carli Lloyd – who plays her football for Sky Blue FC in New Jersey – scored two, with Chicago Red Stars’ Julie Ertz netting the other. Team USA then made it nine points out of nine with a 2-0 victory over Sweden in Le Havre.

The States dominated in the group stage, but they did not have it all their own way in their Round of 16 tie with Spain. La Roja pushed them close in Reims, but USWNT rallied to a 2-1 win thanks to two Megan Rapinoe penalties.

After winning in Canada four years ago, USA are desperate to retain their World Cup crown in France. If they beat the hosts on Friday, who will be able to stop them?

France Women v USA Women Predictions

USA win: Both nations head into this mouth-watering World Cup fixture in great shape. However, USA have vast experience when it comes to knockout football, which could just give them the edge in Paris. America are priced at 6/5 to pick up the win in normal time. Even though I’m backing the States to come out on top, I can also see France scoring in Paris. Therefore, put a few quid on the US to win and both sides to net at 4/1.
