Rapinoe scored twice as USA beats France

After getting both U.S. goals in a 2-1 win over Spain in the Round of 16, Rapinoe monopolised headlines with her post-match remarks on a tantalising FIFA Women's World Cup™ quarter-final with hosts France.

France, which monopolized possession, had caused the United States problems, forcing Jill Ellis' into a more defensive formation in the second half, but as has been the case for France in previous tournaments, a lack of bite in attack proved to be its downfall.

"It was so special to beat the host nation in the Parc des Princes", Rapinoe told FOX in a postgame interview.

Morgan also has been outspoken about Trump's administration, and said in May she wouldn't attend the White House if she were invited.

Ellis had no concerns that all the media and political attention would have impacted negatively on Rapinoe's performance.

This included five reports of minor burns, one report of smoke inhalation, and 17 reports of minor damage to personal property. Still, everyone with an affected unit should bring it in for service, especially as this includes a free battery replacement.

Rapinoe was 3 yards outside the upper left corner of the penalty area when her shot skipped untouched through traffic and past the left knee of French goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi. "She's just a big personality, both on and off the pitch", said the coach. "She's a big-time player and the bigger the stage the more she's going to respond".

Rapinoe has been involved in a cross-Atlantic feud with Trump throughout the World Cup. Rapinoe has scored five goals throughout the tournament, and eight career WWC goals, putting her in sole possession of seventh place.

The row with Trump provoked predictable online reactions from both sides of the political divide.

Rapinoe showed that in her press conference on Thursday before the USWNT's quarterfinal clash against France and then, more importantly, she showed it again Friday during the match at Parc des Princes. Her cutback pass to the center of the box was slotted by Rapinoe. We have a very good English side (next), who have some good players.

With a team of the US' know-how enjoying a two-goal advantage, the match seemed set for a straightforward conclusion but an 80th-minute Wendie Renard header raised the decibels inside the stadium and sowed some seeds of doubt.
