It’s been 32 years since the first and last time the Men’s National Team faced France. In those 32 years, both teams have been involved in several World Cups and other international tournaments. Many U.S. and French players who will play in the Nov. 11 game at Stade de France were not even born the last time the sides met. The MNT suffered two losses against Les Bleus in 1979, and now they have a chance for their first win against one of the most successful teams of the last 15 years. As the men prepare for their upcoming match in Paris next month, ussoccer.com looks into the archives to remember the only two occasions when these sides faced off.
