The United States Women’s National Team took on France over the weekend, unfortunately falling 2-0 to a very talented French side in Lorient. Despite being outplayed for large stretches of the match, the USWNT did have some bright spots, particularly in Alex Morgan’s wildly disrespectful meg of Wendy Renard. Having tracked a ball down the left side of France’s area with her back to goal, Morgan decided the 7th minute was a good time to complete her requisite SportsCenter highlight move, dragging the ball backwards with the sole of her foot through Renard’s legs, turning in one motion to get past the French defender. Unfortunately for the US, France’s well-drilled backline was perfectly positioned to clean up the scraps, but the damage to Renard’s psyche may be irreparable.
