Sweden made it look easy at times against the USWNT
Well. That wasn’t what we expected at all.
We all knew that Sweden have the capabilities to test the USWNT like no other team can but I don’t think anyone expected them to dominate as much as they did today. On the US side, the pre-match build up was centered around being at the Olympics again and getting a chance to avenge the 2016 result that saw them crashing out at the quarter-final stage. For Sweden though, their focus was on a good start to the tournament and then building on from that. They did just that and then some.
