Leroux scores winner, Solo ties shutout record

[USA-FRANCE] The USA improved to 14-0-1 all-time against France with a 1-0 win over the Bleues in a hard-fought game whose start in Tampa was delayed 30 minutes by bad weather. Sydney Leroux scored her team-leading seventh goal of the year to defeat France, which finished with an 8-6 edge in shots.

The lone goal came in the 21st minute when Carli Lloyd fed Christen Press, who flicked the ball into the left side of the box toward Leroux, who slid through two French defenders and beat Sarah Bouhaddi.

Goalkeeper Hope Solo, Leroux's teammate on the NWSL runaway leader Seattle reign, needed to make only one save, however, as she tied the U.S. women’s shutout record with the 71st of her career, matching the  record set by Briana Scurry.

Alex Morgan made her first appearance of the year for the USA, coming on early in the second half for the injured Tobin Heath.

-- Allie Long earned the first start of her international career in midfield. She had debuted as a second-half sub during the USA’s 1-1 draw against Canada on May 8.

UP NEXT: USA and France will square off again Thursday in East Hartford, Connecticut.

June 14 in Tampa
USA 1 France 0. Goal: Leroux 21.
