United States of America vs. Sweden in 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

Portland Thorns players Tobin Heath, Lindsey Horan, Emily Sonnett and Adrianna Franch are all on the USA team and could see minutes in the game.

England will face Cameroon in the last 16, with a potential quarter-final against Norway or Australia ahead.

The United States will finally face a tough opponent in the Women's World Cup, and it's a team that embarrassed the Americans in their last significant tournament. With an extra goal from Tobin Heath, that was later changed to a Swedish own-goal, the US won 2-0.

Over the last three years Ellis has tinkered with rather than overhauled the team's style of play and, so far, it has worked as the reigning champions go into the last 16 with three victories from three matches and a goal difference of +18.

The search for a team to challenge the United States continues.

New Jersey Man Is Ninth Person To Mysteriously Die In Dominican Republic
Wallace's family members claim he became ill after downing a scotch from his room's minibar. "I thought something's not right". Joseph is the ninth relatively healthy person to die under unusual circumstances in the Dominican Republic in the past year.

The Swedes - who will play Canada next - never truly tested a U.S. side which will now turn its attention to a last-16 match against Spain, a team which is competing in the knockout stages for the first time. But Gerhardsson had clearly left out more crucial players than Ellis had chosen to. A USWNT loss to Sweden would have the USA squad finish second in Group F, behind Sweden.If the USWNT wins, they would take on Spain in the round of 16. It's just a matter of who will they play in that round on June 24th? There were no new goal celebrations to rile up anti-US fans as with the previous two games - the USA's dominance will have to do as a talking point.

It took Heath just five minutes into the second half to double the USA's lead.

Heath's strike somehow survived a VAR check from referee Anastasia Pustovoytova despite substitute Carli Lloyd looking to be offside in the build up.
