Majri is also looking great today. She gives me scare every time she's on the ball.

Any streams for this? My fox sports app won't work, and I can't stream from their website. I have XFinity, but nothing is working.

IF posted a link to the reddit streaming forum for this above if that’s of use.

This is the first game I’ve watched. Is the US squad always this sloppy with possession?
They're really missing Horan, which would give them a third skilled passer in the midfield.

Rapinoe has not seen enough of the ball the last 20 minutes. Dunn has been fantastic defending, but they're not playing up the left side like they did early on.

This kind of looks like those "DeBrusk kneed him" still shots but didn't actually happen. She was probably open for like one second.

Well, the US is playing better in the 2 other thirds, and inside the 6. (surprisingly)
I don't think that there is any third in which the USWNT is playing better (it would be the middle 3rd, since the whole point of offensive thirds is it shows how your offense is playing against their defense. The US drew a FK early and scored on it, after a bit of dodginess earlier, France has settled in and dominated possession, but been wasteful on the final ball

An attacking midfielder knows that pass is available without having to look at it because she dragged half of the French defenders across the field with her.

Watching a good team play without a quality distributing midfielder makes me sad.

They were stressing pregame that Dunn could be a real weak spot. She’s been great every game I’ve seen.

That's easy studio banter, which ignores all the hard work Dunn has put into learning the position on the fly.

Honestly it's a valid concern, she's a great player, but out of position and FRA is strong on their right wing. All it will take is one small mistake, it's what happened in the Olympics, a player out of position made a mistake and it led to a backbreaking goal.

Mistake? Sure. This back line plus Naeher are sloppy with the ball. But she's not a weak spot.

Here comes Horan for Lavelle.

Next up I'd like to see Lloyd for Morgan.
