Women's World Cup Day 14 recap: It's official, the USWNT will play Sweden on Sunday

Aug 2, 2023

Sweden ensured that it will be the United States’ opponent early Sunday morning with a 2-0 win over Argentina to clinch Group G.

Perhaps eyeing the USWNT, Sweden coach Peter Gerhardsson changed nine starters for the Argentina game as Sweden entered with two wins in its first two games.

Rebecka Blomqvist broke a 0-0 tie in the 66th minute with the go-ahead goal and then Elin Rubensson made sure Sweden was going to get all three points with a 90th-minute penalty kick.

Sweden’s backups were very aggressive; the Swedes committed 21 fouls but had just one yellow card. Argentina mustered only two shots on goal as it ended the World Cup with a draw and two losses.
