International Champions Cup : Les Lyonnaises s’inclinent malgré la domination (0-1) !
Arguably the better side throughout the 90 minutes, OL lacked finishing and fell 1-0 Sunday night to end the preseason tournament in Miami without any silverware.

The first-ever women's International Champions Cup final ended in disappointment for OL, who fell 1-0 to an ultra-defensive North Carolina Courage side.


10' Weiss can only partially stop a goal-bound effort from O'Reilly, who gives North Carolina the early lead. 0-1.
34' Van De Sanden with a beautiful service that Christiansen can't put away by shooting wide of the frame.
46' Majri replaces Christiansen. Lyon change from a 4-3-3 in the first half to a 4-4-2 formation.
60' Le Sommer fires a rocket off the crossbar.
61' Cascarino comes in for Van De Sanden.
75’ Wendie Renard's deflected header hits the post.
90' Despite dominating the second half, Lyon can't find the equalizer and fall to the North Carolina Courage.
