U.S. Women’s Soccer Vs. France Live Stream: Watch Rio Olympics 2016 Online
The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team will face off against France at the Rio Olympics on Saturday. Check out the live stream below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the 2016 Olympics had its opening ceremony on Friday. While that officially signified the start of the games, the U.S. Women’s soccer team actually began competing on Wednesday. Team USA defeated New Zealand 2-0 in the start of the tournament as part of “Group G.”
France also won its “Group G” match last week against Colombia. Now the two winning teams will compete against each other in hopes of making it to what’s called the “knockout stage.” That then leads to the quarterfinals, and so on.
Today’s match, which is the eighth of the women’s soccer Olympic tournament so far, is taking place at the Mineirao stadium in Belo Horizonate. The city is the sixth largest in Brazil, and hosted part of the FIFA World Cup back in 2014. Following USA vs. FRA, New Zealand and Colombia will take the pitch.
But first, there’s a lot of notable names to watch on the field as the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team goes for the gold. Players include Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, and Mallory Pugh. The game is slated to start at 4 p.m. Eastern. NOTE: Live stream is no longer available.
