Soccer: - 14-04-21

(Le Havre) Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe hit the mark in the Americans' 2-0 win over France in a friendly on Tuesday.

The United States has not lost in 39 games; their last defeat dates back to January 2019, against the French.

Rapinoe converted a penalty in the fifth minute; she leads hers with seven goals in as many games in 2021.

Morgan doubled the score in the 19 th , scoring a 109 th  net.


Morgan mentioned training with the Orlando Pride (National Women's Soccer League), as the reason for his good performance.

She gave birth to her daughter Charlie last May, then contracted COVID-19 over the holidays.

“I trained with Pride every day to try to be my best for 90 minutes,” said the 31-year-old.

“At the (national) camp, I felt very good. If I am asked for 90 minutes, I think I can. "

France was deprived in particular of Wendie Renard, Amandine Henry and Delphine Cascarino, in connection with an outbreak of the coronavirus with Lyon.

The Americans drew 1-1 with Sweden on Saturday in Stockholm.

Ranked number 1 in the world, the United States had won their last 16 games.
