USA Vs. France, 2011 Women's World Cup: Sonia Bompastor Goal Has France Level

France have had the majority of the possession in their 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup semifinal match against the United States and they've dominated the first ten minutes of the second half, so it's not surprising that they have finally found a munch deserved goal. In the 55th minute, France and the USA are now tied up at a score of 1-1, thanks to a goal by Les Bleues left back Sonia Bompastor.

Hope Solo has been incredible for the USWNT tonight, but France's goal can be partially attributed to her positioning. Bompastor put a cross into the box from the left for Euginie Le Sommer, who made a fantastic diagonal run into the box, but her head never met the ball. Solo was anticipating a deflecting and froze when Le Sommer missed. That slight delay caused her to end up behind the ball, and it sailed past her hand and into the back of the net at the far post, directly on the cross.
