GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Alex Morgan scored twice, Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd had a goal apiece and the U.S. women's soccer team rallied from an early deficit Wednesday to open its Olympics with a 4-2 win over France.
The Americans trailed 2-0 after 14 minutes, allowing more goals they had allowed in any game since the World Cup final loss to Japan last year.
But Wambach answered in the 19th, Morgan in the 32nd, Lloyd in the 56th and Morgan again in the 66th in an Olympic soccer tournament that began two days before the opening ceremony and 400-plus miles away from London. Soccer is one of two sports that starts early so it can play a full slate of games.
The Americans next play Colombia on Saturday. The French will face North Korea.
