We have Mr. F to thank for reminding me about the return of SoSG's favorite French girlfriend, Laure Boulleau.
Laure, an obsession here at SoSG Headquarters, had been an obsession for us during the 2011 Women's World Cup. Alas, Laure had fallen a little Boulleau the radar of late.
Yesterday, France took a 2-0 lead on the US by the 14th minute before the US stormed back to tie the game before halftime and score two more goals after half for the 4-2 win. Boulleau started, but did not score.
The US now leads Group G along with Korea, with all four teams having played one game. France's next game is against Korea at 7.45p London Time on Saturday, July 28. We'll be ready!
