Having had a somewhat easy ride in the early stages of the 2019 Women's World Cup, the USA had a much sterner test against Spain, needing two Megan Rapinoe penalties to win 2-1 in the last round. The tournament favourites now take on the much-fancied hosts France, who also had something of a wake-up call in the last 16, requiring extra time and a 106th-minute Amandine Henry winner to see off Brazil.
It's not a Women's World Cup that you'll want to miss and you'll be able to watch from anywhere around the world with our France vs USA live stream guide below – the good news is that it's being shown absolutely free in some regions.
It's fair to say this match-up would have made a fitting final, but instead we have a showdown which will see one side leave the tournament far earlier than they would otherwise had been expected. The USWT go into tonight's game marginal favourites with Betfair, but on paper this match is about as delicately posed as it gets.
Set to be backed by a vociferous home crowd, Les Bleus will also be encouraged by the fact that they beat the USA 3-1 back in January, with Kadidiatou Diani scoring twice. Having had something of a reprieve thanks to a contentious second penalty awarded to them against Spain, the USA will be desperate to up their game, having only had four shots on target in their last outing.
In terms of key battles, look out for France trying to exploit the USA's unconvincing left-side of defence, while Jill Ellis's side will look to nullify captain fantastic Amandine Henry who the majority of French attacking play is filtered through.
