Kadidiatou Diani scored twice and France ended the U.S. women's soccer national team's 28-game unbeaten streak with a 3-1 victory Saturday in Le Havre, France.

The top-ranked United States had not lost since falling 1-0 to Australia in 2017, The Americans were 25-0-3 over the span.

Marie-Antoinette Katoto also scored for third-ranked France, which has won eight consecutive matches.

It was the first of 10 matches the United States will play before the World Cup. The Americans are the defending champions and could meet France again in the tournament's quarterfinals.

France went up in the ninth minute on Diani's goal off a cross from Delphine Cascarino. Diani scored again in the 57th minute to make it 2-0.

Katoto, Diani's PSG teammate, added a goal in the 78th minute. Mallory Pugh scored for the United States in the final moments.


Vonn ties for ninth

Austrian skier Ramona Siebenhofer made it back-to-back World Cup downhill victories with another win Saturday in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, while Lindsey Vonn finished tied for ninth in the second race of her return from injury.

Siebenhofer, who had her first career victory in Friday's race, finished a slim 0.04 seconds ahead of Austrian teammate Nicole Schmidhofer.

Vonn made a slight bobble at the start of her run and then struggled again midway down when she got bounced around on some bumps. She finished 1.36 behind but still moved up six spots from her 15th-place result from a day earlier.

Vonn clearly wasn't satisfied with her performance, holding her arms out wide in frustration at the finish.

"I always hope to win races and when you come down and you're 1.2 off the lead it's not exactly a really positive experience," she said.

"But at the same time of course I had fun and I love being in the starting gate and I love pushing myself. It's just not quite enough in these last two races. But I still have tomorrow and I still have a lot more races this season."

• Vincent Kriechmayr defeated Beat Feuz by 0.14 seconds to win a World Cup downhill in Wengen, Switzerland. Bryce Bennett of the United States finished in fifth place, 0.63 seconds back.
