Welcome back to the U.S. women's national soccer team, which came home to Connecticut on Thursday and will take on France in a friendly summer spar at Rentschler Field.

It's one of the first times the teams have met since the 2012 Olympics.

Though the United States holds an impressive 13-0-1 all-time record against France, the country is regarded as home to some of the most talented players in the world.

The United States women have played eight previous matches in Connecticut. The largest crowd was recorded in October when the US tied Germany 2-2.

Tonight, members of Glastonbury’s Hartwell Club team escorted the soccer stars onto the field. Kick off was set for 7:30.
