Women’s World Cup Fast Facts

The U.S. won their 10th consecutive match at a Women’s World Cup, tying a record set by Norway between 1995 and 1999.

The U.S. has advanced to the semi-finals in all of the Women’s World Cups.

This is the fourth consecutive Women’s World Cup where the host nation has been eliminated in the quarter-final round: France (2019), Canada (2015), Germany (2011), China (2007).

Two U.S. Women — Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan — are tied for the Golden Boot Award along with Australia’s Sam Kerr.

What’s next for the U.S. Women’s team?

The U.S. was convincing in Friday’s win, thanks to clinical defense by the U.S. team throughout the first half. They managed to keep France without a single shot on target and –more importantly — off the scoreboard. They stumbled a bit in the second half, but the U.S. women still showed a show of defensive force worthy of World Cup champions. The lone French goal was only the second the U.S. has allowed all tournament.

Next up, the U.S. team plays England in the semi-final round. England advanced with a 3-0 win over Norway on Thursday.
