Women's World Cup 2011 Semifinals, USA Vs. France Lineups: Becky Sauerbrunn In For USWNT

Neither the United States or France have it us with any surprises with their lineups for their 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup semifinal matchup, with the USA going with their regular 4-4-2 shape and Les Bleues sticking with their 4-2-3-1. Louisa Necib will sit in the hole behind Marie-Laure Delie for France, and we should see some great battles between Necib and Shannon Boxx all game long. Central defender Rachel Buehler is suspended for the United States, so Becky Sauerbrunn, the holder of the longest consecutive games played streak in WPS, steps into the lineup in her place.

United States lineup (4-4-2): Solo; LePeilbet, Sauerbrunn, Rampone, Krieger; Cheney, Boxx, Lloyd, O'Reilly; Wambach, Rodriguez

France lineup (4-2-3-1): Sapowicz; Lepailleur, Georges, Meilleroux, Bompastor; Soubeyrand, Bussaglia; Thiney, Necib, Abily; Delie    

The match kicks off at 12:00 P.M. ET. Check here for a list of places you can watch the match. We'll have live updates throughout in this StoryStream, but you can also follow @SBNationLIVE on twitter for live updates.
