France played the opening match of the tournament against the United States and won rather easily by a score of 4-1.

Willy Sagnol's men broke the deadlock in the 38th minute and it was a little bit special.

On a free-kick relatively close to the box, Coeff deflected the cross with his backfoot into the net past USA goalkeeper Cody Cropper.

Gilbert Imbula Wanga doubled the lead five minutes before the break before Benji Joya pulled one back in the 72nd minute.

Stéphane Bahoken put the game to bed with a goal off a deflection on 77 minutes with Rachid Ghezzal rounding off the scoring two minutes later.
