It’s hard to imagine that any of today’s semi-final action could top what has taken place so far for the American women, but there are still two matches to go before anyone claims the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup title. Last weekend’s big match between Brazil and the United States featured some of the most epic moments in women’s soccer history, and the U.S. can only hope it doesn’t take such dramatic heroics to win today’s battle against France.
Fans can find the game played today at 12pm ET/11am CT on ESPN and live coverage has already begun in terms of pre-game analysis. You can also find the game streaming online at ESPN3.com. France looked impressive throughout the competition so far, although their last match against England was almost as close as the U.S. v. Brazil. Both teams probably enjoyed the rest given to them over the last few days.
Coming up in today’s second semi-final is the upstart Japan team taking on Sweden, and ESPN will provide continuous coverage of both games throughout the afternoon. A live stream of the second match can also be found on ESPN3.com.
