After winning the most difficult group in the 2016 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup by the slimmest of margins and mounting an epic late-game comeback to defeat Mexico in the quarterfinal round, the US WNT face Korea DPR in the first semifinal on Nov. 28 at Sir John Guise Stadium (11:55 pm start Monday on FS1 and NBC Universo).
France, which finished second in the USA’s Group C, defeated 2014 U-20 WWC champions Germany 1-0 in its quarterfinal match and will face Japan, which rolled past Brazil 3-1, in the other semifinal (3:30 a.m. CT on FS1 and telemundo.com). Both semifinals can also be watched on FOX Sports GO and FOXSoccer2Go. Fans can follow all the matches of the U.S. U-20s on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

April Heinrichs, Michelle French & co. may talk a good game about playing a sophisticated, proactive style. But you wouldn’t know it to see the actual team on the field.
