A 44th-minute goal from Julian Green boosted USA to a 1-1 draw against world No. 7 France on Saturday night in Lyon. The USA took the field with a starting lineup that averaged just 22 years old, but held strong in difficult conditions to earn a result against one of the world's top teams. The goal and the result mark firsts for the United States in its all-time series vs. France, which now stands at 0-3-1.

Heading into a summer break, the USA has compiled a 2-1-3 record since last October, including a 1-1 draw on the road against then third-ranked Portugal. Tonight's starting XI included seven players who have made their senior team debut in that span, while a total of 17 players earned their first caps in that time frame, making the result all the more impressive when considering that France's team had seven starters who had won a Champions League title, domestic league title, Cup title, or combination thereof this season in England, France, Spain or Italy.

Spain topped France 2-0 in a friendly match that saw a goal for the hosts disallowed and one confirmed based on video replay for the visitors. The value of the video replays was there for all to see, and one can only hope that football finally takes that leap of faith to bring it on par with other sports that is using video evidence to eradicate refereeing errors from the sport - a reality which more often than not alters the outcome of not just games, but careers.

The Spanish controlled the flow of the game throughout the first half on Tuesday, but posed no real threat to the French goal. France, after an anemic first half, mounted a surge at the start of the second and took a 1-0 lead on a header by Antoine Griezmann.

The game was played in rainy conditions which contributed to a fast-paced match that saw the teams combined for 25 shots, but it was France who was more clinical inside the penalty area and had the USA chasing the game after scoring twice in two minutes early on.

South Africa's Women's side went down 2-0 to their French counterparts in an international friendly match played on Sunday, 22 January at Stade de l’Est Jean Ivoula in Saint-Denis, Reunion Islands. This was the second defeat for the visitors following the one back in 2009 where they lost 3-2 in their first ever clash.

As expected, the clash started at a fast pace with the home wanting to stamp their authority – and it was not long before they took the lead in the 8th minute through a Griedge Mbock Bathy goal. This after the South African defence was exposed.
