United States women's national team beat No. 9 ranked Sweden in their final group stage match of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, with a final score of 2-0.
With the win, the U.S. wins Group F and will now face Spain in the knockout phase. Second place Sweden will face Canada, who were runners up in Group E. Both matches are Monday, June 24.
USA vs. Sweden recap
The United States wasted no time getting the board earning a corner kick in the third minute of play. U.S. forward Megan Rapinoe sends a low bouncing ball into the box that somehow missed every Sweden defender. It found its way to Lindsey Horan who made the mistake of getting into the net quickly for the first goal of the game.
After some back and forth play, each team had some good chances to add tallies. But after the first 45, the U.S. took a 1-0 lead into the break.
It took until the second half for the U.S. to get on the board again. A long ball was played in the box for Tobin Heath who danced in close to the net. After review, the tally was an own goal, touched in the end by Sweden's Jonna Andersson. The goal was the 18th of the tournament for the US, setting a record for most goals by a single team in the group stage of the tournament.
While it wasn't the blowout fans have come to expect, it got the job donated. The USWNT ties Germany as the only two teams to win their Group seven times. Jill Ellis's head coach extends her all-time record to nine wins and one draw.
