WNT vs. France: Reaction - June 14, 2014

Backed by a 21st minute goal from Sydney Leroux, the USA defeated France, 1-0, on a rainy night at Raymond James Stadium as Jill Ellis won her first game since being named the official head coach of the WNT. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo tied the U.S. record for career shutouts with her 71st clean sheet while forward Alex Morgan saw international action (as an early substitute in the second half) for the first time since November of 2013.
