Women's World Cup: How to watch USWNT vs. France, Live Stream, TV Channel, Odds

From the moment the draw for the Women's World Cup was done, June 28 was the date circled in red on the calendar for a possible meeting between France and the U.S women's national team (USWNT).

Both the hosts and the defending champions have duly obliged, winning their respective groups and progressing through the round of 16 to meet in the quarter-final in Paris on Friday.

France needed extra time to have the better on Brazil in the round of 16, with Amandine Henry scoring the winner after regulation time had ended 1-1.

After breezing through the group stage to the tune of 18 goals scored without conceding, the USWNT faced a much more demanding test in the quarter-final against Spain.

Jill Ellis' team conceded for the first time in the tournament but two penalties from Megan Rapinoe were enough to reach the quarter-finals. The Americans have qualified for the semifinals in every World Cup since the tournament's inception in 1991 but know they have their work cut out if they're to extend that run.

"This is the best game, this is what everybody wanted," the U.S. captain was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"I think we want it, seems like they're up for it [...] all the fans. Maybe it will be a pretty even split between the fans in the stadium. We've been traveling pretty deep in this World Cup. I hope it's a total [s***]-show circus. It's going to be totally awesome. I think this is what everybody wants."

The game is certainly in demand, bucking the trend that has seen swathes of empty seats at a number of World Cup venues so far. Tickets on the secondary market are going up to $11,300 on StubHub.com, with the cheapest ticket on the resale site still costing an eye-watering $681.

A number on tickets are on sale for a price between $2,000 and $3,000. By comparison, tickets for England's quarter-final against Norway on Thursday cost between $33 and $170.

The winner of the latter game will face the winner of USWNT vs. France in the semifinals on Tuesday.

One of the most famous stadiums in European soccer, the stadium is Paris Saint-Germain's home ground and hosted the French national soccer and rugby teams until the Stade de France opened for the men's World Cup in 1998.
