Women's World Cup fans party in New York's Times Square as U.S. tops France

Fans watched in New York's Times Square as Megan Rapinoe struck twice to help the United States beat hosts France 2-1 in the women's World Cup quarter-finals at the Parc des Princes on Friday (June 28), setting up a semi-final clash with England.

Rapinoe, who was involved in a spat with U.S. President Donald Trump during the build up to the game, opened the scoring in the fifth minute with a low-struck free-kick from the left that went in untouched through a crowd of players.

After the break, the U.S. survived some intense French pressure but then 33-year-old Rapinoe added her second goal in the 65th minute with a calm finish after a low cross from the right by Tobin Heath.

France got back in the game with a Wendie Renard header in the 81st and with a 45,00 crowd roaring the hosts forward they piled the pressure on, but the U.S held firm to maintain their record of never missing out on the semi-finals of a World Cup.
