France Vs. USA Live, 2011 International Friendly: Loic Remy Puts Les Bleus In Front

Finally France have the goal that they most definitely deserve. Loic Remy got in behind the United States defense and blasted the ball past Tim Howard to put Les Bleus in front at the Stade de France. Having missed on several chances in this match, either by missing the frame completely, hitting the bar or having balls blocked in front of goal, it looked like the French might be cursed, but Remy's goal has them in front after 72 minutes.

There wasn't a lot in the France goal. As was the case a few times in the match, the U.S. defense got burned by their high line with a long ball over the top. This time Remy ran into it and the frustrated French fans in Paris finally had something to cheer about as Remy finished easily.

The U.S. hasn't shown the slightest bit of ability to attack in this match so it's hard to imagine them finding an equalizer. They've had zero ideas in the attacking half and unless they have something up their sleeve, it looks like France is going to win this friendly.
