The game was a rematch for the two teams that met in last year's World Cup semifinals.<p>France jumped out to a 2-0 lead before the match was 15 minutes old, scoring on a breakaway run by Gaetane Thiney; moments later, a short-range shot found the back of the net after several U.S. players failed to clear the ball following a corner kick.<p>But the Americans soon struck back, with forward Abby Wambach heading in a corner kick from Megan Rapinoe.
