Barty will be a warm favourite to progress to a semi-final against either defending champion Simona Halep or American teenage sensation Amanda Anisimova after dominating Keys in Fed Cup in April — two years after losing to the American in the first round in Paris. Only once before had they even made it to the semi-finals, and for the second World Cup running their adventure ends in the last eight, the same stage at which they went out of the Olympics and the last three European Championships.
Having started this tournament with a first-half blitz against South Korea in the opening game, Les Bleues never really reached the same heights again. The country's leading sports daily L'Equipe had called this "the challenge of a lifetime", and in that context conceding the opening goal so early on a sweltering Parisian evening was a disaster. Alex Morgan drew a foul from Griedge Mbock outside the penalty box to the USA left, and Rapinoe's low delivery somehow went in without taking a touch, passing through the legs of France skipper Amandine Henry en route. The home side had lots of the ball after that but rarely looked like troubling USA goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher and their supporters grew increasingly frustrated.
Their opponents had not created much either, but they made their intent clear right at the start of the second half as a Samantha Mewis strike drew a fine save from Sarah Bouhaddi, who then did well to keep out Heath's follow-up.
The second goal arrived in the 65th minute, with Morgan and Heath combining down the right before the latter's ball across goal was turned in by Rapinoe. Heath then had a third goal disallowed for offside but France did not give up and set up a frenzied finale as they reduced the deficit nine minutes from time. Gaethane Thiney flighted a free-kick from the left into the box and Renard evaded her marker to head home her fourth goal of the tournament. But the USA saw out the victory. The longest he went before getting his first break in a Jazz game last season was Ntilikina scored 11 for France.
