USA 2-0 Sweden: Women's World Cup 2019 – live!
- USA will play Spain; Sweden will face Canada
- Hope Solo: why I called Sweden cowards
US coach Jill Ellis speaks. She says she is pleased with going through the group stage without conceding a goal. “We needed this next level and they responded to that. That was the ignition we needed,” she said.
So, both teams will play again on Monday. Sweden will face Canada and the US will play Spain. Sweden were well-organised and picked up their game in the second-half but the US deserved their victory. We didn’t know how the reigning champions would play against a world-class side. The answer is: pretty well. They will be particularly pleased with how solid they looked in defence, a worry before this tournament.
