The United States' women's soccer team scored four unanswered goals to beat France, 4-2, in the opening match of the 2012 London Olympic Games on Wednesday at Hampton Field in Glasgow, Scotland.
France led 2-0 after 14 minutes on goals by Gaetane Tieney and Marie-Laure Delie.

Cal grad Alex Morgan scored twice for the Americans, while Carli Lloyd scored the go-ahead goal. Abby Wambach also scored. The USA now has a 13-0-1 record in the series with France that dates to the first meeting on July 29, 1988 – a 1-0 USA victory in Rimini, Italy.

Stanford grads Rachel Buehler and Kelley O'Hara each started for the USA and played the entire match.

The U.S. meets Colombia on Saturday, also in Scotland.
