All USA, until the 75th minute of the quarter final, against France.

I think America thought it was a walk over on France, being 2 goals up.  Then the French turned it into a game.  They scored in the 81st minute, and boy did they put the pressure on the US.

There was an appeal for handball in the French penalty area, and the referee didn’t give it.  We got to see the replay, and it certainly was.  The ref didn’t even check the VAR, and play continued.

France had several chances in the last few minutes, and must feel disheartened at the final score.  To me, both teams were as good as each other, but of course one has to loose.

It will be England – USA in the semi-finals.
