Little time for US to recover before facing France

Little time for US to recover before facing France

The U.S. women have their quickest turnaround yet at the World Cup, with just two days to prepare for their semifinal against France after Sunday's physically and emotionally draining epic against Brazil.
Not only will the Americans, the oldest team in the tournament, be playing on one fewer day of rest than they've been getting, but France will have had three days off by the time they meet Wednesday night.
U.S. midfielder Heather O'Reilly says the extra day is "a big difference." But she also says the Americans are fit, something they proved in their penalty shootout win over Brazil.
